Over the past few years, EPA’s Office of Research and Development has updated its engineering design and operation guidance for the control of nitrogen and phosphorus at municipal wastewater treatment plants. This webinar, “Nitrogen Control at Wastewater Treatment Plants,” will provide an update on state-of-the-science developments in the control of nitrogen at publically owned treatment works. The technical guidance presented at this webinar will be instrumental in supporting the implementation of new nitrogen water quality standards being developed by the states. For more information and to register for the webinar, go to: http://www.epa.gov/nrmrl/events/event03082012.html
EPA is releasing a technical manual for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) to provide states, producers, and the general public (1) general information on Clean Water Act and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program requirements for CAFOs, (2) information to explain CAFO permitting requirements under the Clean Water Act, and (3) technical information to help states and producers understand options for nutrient management planning.
It is EPA’s intent that this is a living document that will be updated periodically to incorporate new and emerging approaches to CAFO management, including those focused on manure reuse and recycling and use for energy generation. Interested parties are encouraged to bring to EPA’s attention questions and suggestions concerning the content of this manual at any time. EPA will consider this input and update this document periodically to ensure that this manual is as helpful as possible.For more information and to view a copy of the manual: http://www.epa.gov/npdes/caforule.
