Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Georgia's regulations adopt federal pretreatment limitations where they have been established under Section 307 of the federal Clean Water Act. The state has been delegated authority to administer the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), including pretreatment permits.

Georgia also reserves the right to require more stringent treatment if it is required to meet state water-quality standards, or to ensure that there is no interference with the operation of the publicly owned treatment works (POTW) into which it discharges.

The state requires a pretreatment discharge permit for all facilities discharging into POTWs that do not have an approved pretreatment program.

Administration and enforcement. EPD's Watershed Protection Branch and approved POTWs administer and enforce the state's pretreatment program.
