A monitoring only limit for Ammonia has been added in the winter (November 1 - May 31). Seasonal summer (June 1 - October 31) intermittent limits for Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) remain the same. Seasonal winter limits for BOD5 and TSS have been added based on higher winter stream flows. The winter BOD5 and TSS limits are both 30 mg/l for a 30-day average and 45 mg/l for a 7-day average, plus the corresponding loading limits. The Seasonal summer limit for Dissolved Oxygen (DO) remains at a daily minimum of 7 mg/l; a seasonal winter DO limit of a daily minimum of 5.0 mg/l has been added. Language has been added to the permit regarding the Discharge Notification Act (signage) and the prohibition of Sanitary Sewage Overflows. Also included are the requirements for a Mercury Minimization Program for Low Priority POTWs, as well as the inclusion of a Priority Pollution Scan with sampling occurring during the calendar years ending in 2 and 7.
