Abstract:

An industrial facility in Southern California has Water Quality Based Effluent Limits (WQBELs) for dozens of inorganic and organic constituents based on California Toxics Rule CTR) criteria for the protection of aquatic life in its National Pollutant Discharge and Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit. To attempt to achieve these extraordinarily low numerical effluent limits for facility stormwater, novel passive flow through advanced filtration structural Best Management Practices (BMPs) have been developed and installed at several locations on the site. This paper presents the design criteria, system design, and performance evaluation of different BMPs monitored at the site.
