The action involves compliance with mandates in the newly revised Metro WWTP SPDES permit, dated March 21, 2012, which states that Metro WWTP outfall 002 must meet fecal coliform limits of 200#/100 ml while simultaneously meeting a Total Chlorine Residual (TRC) value of 0.1 mg/l, by April 1, 2016, the following actions are proposed.
- Alternative #1: Construction of additional process tankage for Metro 002 flows to increase chemical processing time. or
- Alternative #2: Re-purposing of the dormant Metro tertiary tanks to increase chemical processing time.
