Water: Wastewater Technology

Wastewater Technology

Provides information on wastewater technology including a host of publications and reports and links dedicated to biosolids and industry effluent guidelines.

DMR Pollutant Loading Tool: The Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) Pollutant Loading Tool is a new tool designed to help you determine who is discharging, what pollutants they are discharging and how much, and where they are discharging. The tool calculates pollutant loadings from permit and DMR data from EPA‘s Integrated Compliance Information System for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (ICIS-NPDES) as well as data from EPA's Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). Data is updated weekly from ICIS-NPDES and annually from TRI back to 2007. Pollutant loadings are presented as pounds per year and as toxic-weighted pounds per year to account for variations in toxicity among pollutants. The tool ranks dischargers, industries, and watersheds based on pollutant mass and toxicity, and presents “top ten” lists to help you determine which discharges are important, which facilities and industries are producing these discharges, and which watersheds are impacted.

Biosolids – Find information on the proper use and disposal of biosolids as well as well as statutory requirements and the results of a national survey of the content of treated sewage sludge.

Industry Effluent GuidelinesSee existing regulations and regulations under development regarding national standards for wastewater discharges to surface waters and publicly owned treatment works.

Technology Factsheets – Provides factsheets regarding combined sewer overflows treatment, storm water, disinfection, biological treatment, water efficiency, decentralized systems technology, collection systems, biosolids, wastewater, and energy conservation and management.

Publications & Reports Access information regarding the Clean Water State Revolving Fund;  biosolids; contamination cleanup and remediation; decentralized systems; drinking water protection; nonpoint source, watershed, and estuary protection; water efficiency; planning and fund management; smart growth; water conservation; green infrastructure; and other funding resources.
