Development Document For Effluent Limitation Guidelines And Standards For The Ore Mining And Dressing Point Source Category, Proposed.
This document presents the findings of an extensive study of the ore mining and dressing industry, for the purpose of developing effluent limitations guidelines for existing point sources and standards for performance new sources, to implement Sections 304, and 307 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended in 1977 by the Clean Water Act, P.S. 95-217.
Effluent limitations guidelines are set forth for the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the best conventional pollutant control technology (BCT) and the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the best available technology economiclly achievable BAT which must be achieved by existing point source sources. The standards of performance for new sources are set for the degree of effluent reduction which is achievable through application of the best available demonstrated control technology processes, operating methods, or other alternatives.
