This report assesses the water quality related benefits that would be expected from adoption by the U.S. Environmental Protectiion Agency (EPA) of final effluent limitations, guidelines and pretreatment standards for the Centralized Waste Treatment (CWT) Point Source Category. EPA estimates that under baseline conditions 205 CWT facilities discharge approximately 8.6 million lbs/year of metal and organic pollutants. The final rule, in EPA's assessment, will reduce this pollutant loading by 50%, to 4.3 million lbs/year.
