Effluent Guidelines: Get Involved
- Contact EPA about an Industry
- Learn about Industrial Discharges in Your Area
- Review the Effluent Guidelines Program Plan and Supporting Documents
- Submit Comments on the Plans or on Proposed Rules
- Additional Information
The Water Pollutant Loading Tool provides information about industrial and municipal facility discharges, the amount and types of pollutants they are discharging, and where those facilities are located. You can use this tool to learn more about industrial pollution and the health of surface water bodies in your area, using the Data Explorer functions and other search tools.
EPA also accepts public comments on proposed rules for new or revised effluent guidelines. Refer to EPA’s list of current effluent guidelines under development and ongoing studies for more information.
EPA requests public comments on each Preliminary Plan and sometimes also on its Final Plans. The Federal Register notice for each Plan provides instructions on submitting comments.
