Author: Environment Agency Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This document represents a summary of the comments on the proposals and the application of toxicity-based criteria for the regulatory control of wastewater dicharges. This provided industry and other interested parties with an opportunity to comment on the proposals and an opportunity to debate the major issues was provided at a meeting held at Torquay (29-31st October 1996). The consultation process was considered to be a successful and worthwhile exercise, by both the Agency and external participants. The use of direct toxicity measures for effluent control and for environmental monitoring were generally seen as a positive move towards better environmental protection. Debate centred on how the measures should be implemented. In particular consultees wanted to see the introduction of DTA as action levels which trigger toxicity reduction measures within improvement plans rather than as pass/fail compliance limits within licences.
