Description

The American Public Power Association is pleased to host a briefing on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final rule addressing effluent concentration limits for certain metals in power plant wastewater under the Clean Water Act. 

The Steam Electric Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG) Reconsideration Rule changes several aspects of the coal-fired power plant effluent limitations included in the 2015 Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards rule, including the limits for two waste streams: flue gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater and bottom ash (BA) transport water. Among other things, the final rule addresses the effluent concentration limits for mercury, arsenic, selenium, nitrate/nitrite as nitrogen, bromide, and total suspended solids in FGD and BA. EPA estimates that these changes will reduce annual compliance costs by $140 million.

Recommended for

New to Zoom?

If you haven't participated in a Zoom meeting before, please download the Zoom web client from the Zoom Download Center. This will enable you to access all of the Zoom tools and functionality vs. using the web version. For the course, you will need an Internet connection and sound (we recommend using your computer’s audio and microphone, though a phone number will also be provided). Then, visit Zoom.us/test to ensure you are able to join a meeting. 

If you are not able to download the Zoom web client, you can still participate via your Internet browser. We recommend using Chrome for the best results. If you use your Internet browser, your functionality may be more limited (for example, you will only be able to see one video feed at a time), and you will need to create a Zoom account. (Account creation is a free and straightforward process, but you will want to do this in advance so you do not miss any part of the meeting).
