This timely new book presents practical information about the effective implementation of water-quality-based toxics control for wastewater treatment plants. It addresses five main subject areas, including approaches to toxics control, legal issues, toxicity identification and reduction evaluations, whole effluent toxicity testing, and chemical specific limits. Case examples from actual experiences illustrate workable solutions for implementing new water-quality-based permit requirements.
The book provides a useful reference for wastewater treatment plant personnel, industrial wastewater treatment professionals, government agency regulators, environmental consultants, and environmental attorneys.
