Petition No. 2004-26
LCB File No. R092-04
Date Received by Commission: October 12, 2004
Summary: Wastewater Pretreatment Program - Publicly Owned Treatment Works
Current Status: Permanent Filed w/Sec of State 02/17/05
Nevada Administrative Code: NAC 445A.257
Permanent Adoption: November 30, 2004
Wastewater Pretreatment Program - Publicly Owned Treatment Works: This regulation amends NAC 445A.257. The regulation address's the control of water pollution by making it optional, rather than mandatory, for the Division of Environmental Protection (Division) to administer a pretreatment program for a publicly owned treatment works that does not have a pretreatment program in place. Specifically, the regulation would strike the requirement for the Division to administer a pretreatment program for municipalities and industrial users that do not have an approved pretreatment program, and the revision would allow NDEP the option to administer a pretreatment program in cases where a municipality does not have an approved pretreatment program. At this time the Division does not have a delegated program to operate the pretreatment program from the U.S. EPA. Therefore, the necessary resource funding from the U.S. EPA has not been awarded to the Division in order to effectively staff a pretreatment oversight program. This revision will provide the Division the flexibility to administer a pretreatment program in the future on a case by case basis.
