Development Document for Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards of Performance--Water Supply Industry, Draft Final Report.
This report presents the findings of a study of the Water Supply Industry for the purposes of developing effluent limitation guidelines, and standards of performance for the industry to implement Sections 304, 306, and 307 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 (PL92-500). Guidelines and standards were developed for the entire water supply industry, which was divided into three subcategories.
