Assessment Topic

This document presents the findings of an extensive study of the paint manufacturing industry for the purpose of developing effluent limitations for existing point sources and standards of performance for new sources and pretreatment standards for existing and new sources to implement Sections 301, 304, 306, and 307 of the Clean Water Act. Effluent limitation guidelines are set forth for the degree of effluent pollutant reduction attainable through application of best available technology economically achievable which must be attained by existing point sources by July 1, 1984. The standards of performance for new sources (NSPS) set forth the degree of effluent pollutant reduction that is achievable through the application of the best available demonstrated control technology, processes, operating methods, or other alternatives. Pretreatment standards for existing and new sources (PSES and PSNS) set forth the degree of effluent pollutant reduction that must be achieved in order to prevent the discharge of pollutants that pass through, interfere with, or are otherwise incompatible with the operation of POTW.
