NPDES Permitting

NPDES Site Specific Effluent Limitations


The following is from SC Regulation 61-68.

Section E.14.c(7).  Site specific permit effluent limits and alternate criteria less stringent than those derived in accordance with the above requirements may be derived where it is demonstrated that such limits and criteria will maintain classified and existing uses, adequate opportunity for public participation in such derivation process has occurred, and the effluent will not cause criteria for human health to be exceeded.  Where a site specific permit effluent limit and alternate criterion has been derived, such derivation shall be subject to EPA review as appropriate.  Also, at a minimum, opportunity for input in derivation of a site specific permit effluent limit and alternate criterion will be provided via public notice in NPDES permit notices.
