Title Implementation Guidance for the Reissuance of the General VPDES Permit for Noncontact Cooling Water Discharges of 50,000 GPD or Less, 9VAC25-196
Document ID GM13-2002
Summary Amendments to the General VPDES Permit Regulation for Noncontact Cooling Water Discharges of 50,000 GPD or Less, 9VAC25-196 became effective on March 2, 2013. One significant change for this reissuance is the inclusion of two effluent limit sets for the last year of the permit, one for discharges to freshwater receiving streams and one for discharges to saltwater receiving streams. These limit sets are basically the same as the Table 1 limits, but include actual effluent limitations for copper, silver and zinc. The previous permit did not limit those metals, but had a "monitoring only" requirement. This guidance identifies the changes that have been made in the reissued general permit, provides staff with implementation procedures and replaces GM08-2005.
