Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The state is fully authorized by EPA to administer the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) pretreatment program. Virginia's pretreatment regulations are identical to the federal regulations with the exception of the program implementation time frame.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ is responsible for administering the Virginia pretreatment program and has authority to enforce its requirements. DEQ serves as the approval authority for publicly owned treatment work (POTWs) and the control authority for the rest of the state.

State Requirements

PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION

POTWs must begin to develop a pretreatment program at either permit issuance or when notified by DEQ. The program must include information concerning the legal authority, program procedures, funding and resources, local limits, enforcement response plan, and Significant Industrial User (SIU) list. Within 1 year of permit issuance, or notification by DEQ that a pretreatment program is required, a POTW must submit three copies of all elements of the program to DEQ.

The approved program must be in operation within 2 years of the effective date of the permit, or the date of inclusion in the permit by modification.
