1 Proposed Effluent Guidelines For the Concentrated Aquatic Animal Production Point Source Category by Janet Goodwin

2 CAAP Proposed Regulation Published September 12 at 67 FR –Comment Period Closes on December 11, 2002 Supporting Documents: –Technical Development Document (EPA 821- R ) –Economic and Environmental Analysis (EPA 821-R ) –Draft Guidance to Assist in Reducing Pollutant Discharges (EPA 821-B )

3 Public Meetings Several meetings across the country: –Washington, D.C., October 30 –Seattle, WA and/or Twin Falls, ID –Atlanta, GA –Northeast Regional Aquaculture Centers Conference on November 15, Providence, R.I. All meetings will be posted on web site and announced in a Federal Register notice.

4 Overview of Proposed Requirements Three Subcategories –Flow Through –Recirculating –Net Pens Requirements apply to facilities in these subcategories with annual production >100,000 pounds

5 Flow Through Requirements Tiered Requirements –Medium sized: 100,000 up to 475,000 lb/year –Large sized: 475,000 lb/year and up

6 Medium Flow Through Numeric limits: TSS 11 and 6 mg/L BMP plan –ensure proper operation & maintenance –material storage –removal and proper disposal of mortalities Ensure staff are familiar and trained in BMPs Certify BMP plan

7 Large Flow Through Numeric Limits: TSS 10 and 6 mg/L BMP plan adds –the escape of non-native species Reporting for drugs & chemicals Staff training Certify

8 Flow Through Segregated Discharges Numeric Limits for Off-line discharge: TSS –Medium 87 and 67 mg/L –Large 69 and 55 mg/L BMP plan adds solids controls on bulk discharge –solids removed in water treatment –excess feed –high level of particulates or phosphorus in feed –raceway cleaning

9 BMP Alternative Compliance Provision Develop and implement a BMP plan to address solids in lieu of monitoring for TSS limits Subject to permit authority approval and determination that BMPs will achieve numeric limits

10 For More Information Project Manager: Marta Jordan (202) Economist: Nicolaas Bouwes (202) Technical Coordinator: Jan Goodwin (202) For access to documents: For access to record: Water Docket (202)
