Preliminary plans provide a summary of the EPA’s annual review of effluent limitations guidelines and pretreatment standards, consistent with CWA sections 301(d), 304(b), 304(g), 304(m), and 307(b). From these reviews, preliminary plans identify any new or existing industrial categories selected for effluent limitations guidelines or pretreatment standards rulemakings and provide a schedule for such rulemakings. In addition, preliminary plans present any new or existing categories of industry selected for further review and analysis. Preliminary Plan 15 discusses EPA’s 2020 annual review of effluent limitations guidelines and pretreatment standards, presents its preliminary review of specific categories identified through the review, provides an update on the analyses and tools that EPA is continuing to develop, and discusses several new and ongoing rulemaking actions. EPA is initiating three new rulemakings after concluding several studies that were discussed in Plan 14. After several years of collecting and analyzing data, EPA has concluded that revision of the following effluent limitations guidelines or pretreatment standards are warranted: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:55 Sep 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 1.
