The amount of hydrocarbons allowed in industrial and Stormwater effluents varies greatly from one locality to another or from one country to another. Some countries mandate hardware solutions to the effluent problem and others stipulate a specific concentration allowable.

The paper will present the regulations governing effluents in many countries and states and localities within the US as well as offering discussions of some of the hardware systems required by various jurisdictions.

Comments are included concerning the possible future course of these regulations.
