This Development Document describes the technical basis for final regulations (see the Federal Register for October 30, 1985, at 50FR v 45212) that establish effluent limitations guidelines and standards that limit the discharge of pollutants into navigable waters and publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) by existing and new sources engaged in metal molding in metal molding and casting operations. The Development Document sets forth the effluent limitations guidelines achievable by the "best practicable control technology currently available (BPT), the "best available technology economically achievable" (BAT), new source performance standards (NSPS) attainable by the "best available demonstrated technology", and pretreatment standards applicable to existing and new discharges to POTWs (PSES and PSNS, respectively). Document also presents estimated costs of the wastewater treatment and control technologies.
