EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF18 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: ●Effluent Guidelines and Standards for the Centralized Waste Treatment Industry(Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: In December 2000, EPA promulgated effluent limitations for the Centralized Waste Treatment (CWT) Point Source Category at 40 CFR 437 (65 FR 81241, December 22, 2000). A CWT facility treats or recovers hazardous or non-hazardous industrial waste, wastewater, or used material from off-site. The regulation established wastewater discharge standards for three major types of wastes: metal-bearing, oily, and organic. EPA issued a Small Entity Compliance Guide, which provides easy-to-read descriptions of the regulations and other helpful information on how to comply such as a question and answer section. EPA announces this new action, pursuant to Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, to initiate a review of the rule to determine if it should be continued without change, or should be rescinded or amended to minimize adverse economic impacts on small entities. As part of this review, EPA will consider, and solicits comments on, the following factors: (1) The continued need for the rule; (2) the nature of complaints or comments received concerning the rule; (3) the complexity of the rule; (4) the extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal, State, or local government rules; and (5) the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the rule. Comments must be received by 90 days from this publication. In submitting comments, please reference Docket ID number EPA-HQ-OW-2010-0169, and follow the instructions provided in an earlier section of the preamble to this issue of the Regulatory Agenda. EPA will summarize the results of this review in a report and place that report in the rulemaking docket referenced above. You can access that docket at EPA continues to view the effluent limitations for the CWT category as a necessary component of the comprehensive program to restore and maintain the quality of our Nationís waters. EPA intends to continue to require compliance with the regulation. Until and unless the Agency modifies the rule, the discharges described in 40 CFR 437.1 remain subject to the final rules.
