Postponement of Certain Compliance Dates for the Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Steam Electric Power Generating Point Source Category (Final)
Sep. 18, 2017
Under the CWA, The EPA intends to conduct a rulemaking to potentially revise certain best available technology economically achievable ("BAT") effluent limitations and pretreatment standards for existing sources ("PSES") for the steam electric power generating point source category, which were published in the Federal Register on 3 November 2015. Therefore, EPA is postponing the earliest compliance dates for the new, more stringent, BAT effluent limitations and PSES for flue gas desulfurization ("FGD") wastewater and bottom ash transport water in the 2015 Rule for a period of 2 years. The final rule is effective 18 September 2017.
