|Petition Title||Opequon WR Facility Nutrient Wasteload Allocations|
|Petitioner||esse W. Moffett, Executive Director, Frederick-Winchester Service Authority (FWSA)|
Amend the Water Quality Management Planning Regulation (9 VAC 25-720-50.C), to modify total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) waste load allocations for the FWSA-Opequon Water Reclamation Facility; VPDES Permit No. 0065552. The TN and TP allocations are currently based on a permitted design capacity of 8.4 million gallons per day (MGD), and FWSA claims that the exisiting infrastructure is more appropriately classified as 12.6 MGD. FWSA requests that the facility's waste load allocations be increased from 102,336 lbs/yr to 153,422 lbs/yr for TN, and from 7,675 lbs/yr to 11,506 lbs/yr for TP, to reflect a design capacity of 12.6 MGD.
