Surface water dischargers throughout the country are required to comply with the limitations set forth in their discharge permit. In many states, this includes thermal limitations which were implemented to protect fish and other aquatic life from mortality, immobilization, loss of equilibrium, impaired growth, adverse reproductive effects, and other sub-lethal effects.

A long-term solution to effectively treat the facility’s process wastewater [...]
