The heart of the National Pretreatment Program is the ability of a municipality to assess site-specific capabilities of its wastewater treatment system and to determine the most effective means to achieve compliance with its wastewater and biosolids goals and limitations. Between 1987 and 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued at least five (5) guidance manuals to assist pretreatment coordinators in establishing these “local limits.” The most widely referenced document is EPA's 1987 “Guidance Manual on the Development and Implementation of Local Discharge Limitations Under the Pretreatment Program.” More than a decade later, EPA has updated this manual to incorporate historical data on various techniques, emphasize priority activities, provide guidance on technical advances in analytical procedures, and to integrate regulatory and policy changes that have occurred in the intervening time period. This report will focus on the new and changed information presented in EPA's 2004 “Local Limits Development Guidance.”
