Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Woodbury, Orange County


Project Description:

The State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit for the Orange County Department of Environmental Facilities & Services has been modified as a department initiated modification in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA's) approval of the Orange County Sewer District's Industrial Pretreatment Program. In accordance with 40 CFR 403.8(a), federal regulations require municipal wastewater treatment facilities with design flows greater than 5.0 MGD that receive pollutants from industrial users to develop and implement an industrial pretreatment program. A June 4, 2004 SPDES permit modification was issued for an expansion of the wastewater treament plant from a design flow of 4.5 MGD to 6.0 MGD. As part of that permit modification, the Orange County Department of Environmental Facilities & Services was required to develop and submit an industrial pretreatment program report to the USEPA for review and approval. The industrial pretreatment program report was tentatively approved by EPA on August 14, 2007; was public noticed on November 2, 2007; and received final approval from the USEPA on July 8, 2008. Upon final approval, the USEPA requested modification of the SPDES permit to reflect the approval of the industrial pretreatment program. As such, this draft permit has been modified from the existing SPDES Permit in the following ways:

Existing permit pages describing the Pretreatment Program Development and Implementation Requirements have been updated to reflect the current permit language for Pretreatment Program Implementation Requirements and references the July 8, 2008 approval date.

Additional Permit Revisions - As part of this department initiated modification, the permit has also been updated as follows:

Monitoring for total phosphorus has been added for discharge outfalls 001 & 002. Monthly monitoring results will be reported as both concentration and mass discharge values. Upon review of the phosphorus data, the Department may reopen the permit to include a limitation for phosphorus.


In response to a September 26, 2008 letter from the permittee, the monitoring frequency for sampling copper at outfall 002 has been modified from weekly to monthly analysis. This monthly sampling frequency is consistent with other metals analysis at both outfalls 001 and 002 and the noted weekly sampling frequency currently in the permit appears to have been in error.


The Schedule of Compliance items that were listed on page 12 of 16 of the existing permit have been removed as these actions have been satisfactorily completed.

The address and telephone number for Region 3 Office has been updated to reflect current information.
