EPA Document Number:
POTW Treatment units
The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing to regulate organic hazardous air pollutants emitted from wastewater treatment units at new or reconstructed publicly owned treatment works (POTW) that are major sources. At the same time, EPA is proposing not to require any additional controls on wastewater treatment units at existing POTW. POTW are used to process waste from households, businesses, and industries, and are generally owned and operated by cities or counties.
