DEEP: Significant TWO Industrial Users in Significant Non-Compliance during Federal Fiscal Year 2016

Significant Industrial Users in Significant Non-Compliance during Federal Fiscal Year 2016

In accordance with Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, §403.8(f)(2)(viii), the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is providing notice of those significant industrial users (SIUs) that were in significant non-compliance (SNC) with pretreatment standards and other pretreatment requirements during the preceding federal fiscal year.  A list of the SNC criteria are listed below. The DEEP has verified the SNC status of SIUs flagged on EPA’s Quarterly Non-Compliance Reports (QNCRs) and identified SIUs that were discharging to the sanitary sewer without a permit.  The QNCRs are EPA reports that determine SIUs in SNC based on sampling data submitted by permittees, as required by their permits.  The facilities listed below were determined to be in SNC during the time-period from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016.  In the table below, the Violations/Quarters column provides: 1) letter(s) corresponding to the respective SNC criteria listed below and/or the specific administrative deficiency, 2) the pollutant parameter for which a company was not in compliance, and 3) the quarter(s) that the facility was in non-compliance.

SNC Criteria:

  1. Chronic violations: Those in which sixty-six percent (66%) or more of all measurements taken for the same pollutant parameter during a six (6) month period exceed, by any magnitude, the Average Monthly, Maximum Daily, or Maximum Instantaneous Limit(s).
  1. Technical Review Criteria violations: Those in which thirty-three percent (33%) or more of all of the measurements taken for the same pollutant parameter during a six (6) month period equal or exceed the Average Monthly, Maximum Daily, or Maximum Instantaneous Limit(s) multiplied by 1.4 for biochemical oxygen demand, total suspended solids or fats, oil and grease, or 1.2 for all other pollutants except pH.
  1. Monitoring Reports: Failure to provide, within forty-five (45) days after the due date, required reports such as Discharge Monitoring Reports.
  1. Compliance Schedule:  Failure to meet within ninety (90) days after the schedule date, a compliance schedule milestone contained in or linked to a respective permit for starting construction, completing construction or attaining final compliance.
  1. Noncompliance Reporting: Failure to accurately report noncompliance.
  1. Discretionary: Any other violation of an effluent limit that the Department determines has caused, alone or in combination with other discharges, a violation of the POTW’s NPDES permit, inhibition or disruption of the POTW, its treatment processes or operations, or its sludge processes, use or disposal.
  1. Imminent Endangerment: Any discharge of a pollutant that has caused imminent endangerment to human health, welfare or to the environment, or has resulted in the Department’s exercise of its emergency authority under 40 CFR 403.8(f)(1)(vi)(B) to halt or prevent such a discharge.
  1. Best Management Practices (“BMPs”): Any other violation or group of violations, which may include a violation of BMPs, which the Department determines will adversely affect the operation or implementation of the pretreatment program.
