Companies discharging wastewater through the NPDES must treat the water more heavily than if they were to discharge it to a POTW
This redistributive theory explains these two key features of the FWPCA: the delegation of the implementation of POTW
pretreatment standards to the POTW
's themselves, and the massive federal grants to improve such POTW
determine the capability of the POTW
to handle such wastewater.
pharmaceutical concentrations in the output of a POTW
would be the same
In order to purchase nutrient credits from another permitted facility, the second facility (another POTW
for example) must be removing nutrient levels in excess of the requirements mandated in their NPDES permit.

, including "slug loading, as defined by 40 C.
The bottoms of the column represent the treated effluent, and are discharged through a feed pre-heater for heat recovery and a bottoms cooler for final temperature control before discharge to the POTW
It is possible that the POTW
may place a restriction on the commercial or industrial facility by not having sufficient capacity to accept additional sewage of any type.
These pretreatment standards limit the type of pollutants which can enter the POTW
in order to preserve the efficiency of the POTW
Apparently, this water is not clean enough for GLI, so new proposals are calling for companies to pretreat their water before POTW
