NR 256.02 NR 256.02 Applicability. This chapter applies to aluminum, copper, ferrous or zinc casting operations which discharge or may discharge pollutants to waters of the state or into a publicly owned treatment works.
NR 256.02 History History: Cr. Register, June, 1989, No. 402, eff. 7-1-89.
NR 256.03 NR 256.03 General definitions. The following definitions are applicable to terms used in this chapter. Definitions of other terms and the meanings of other abbreviations are set forth in ss. NR 205.03, 205.04 and 211.03.
NR 256.03(1) (1) “Aluminum casting” means the remelting of aluminum or an aluminum alloy to form an intermediate or final cast product by pouring or forcing the molten metal into a mold.
NR 256.03(2) (2) “Copper casting” means the remelting of copper or a copper alloy, to form an intermediate or final cast product by pouring or forcing the molten metal into a mold.
NR 256.03(3) (3) “Existing source” means any point source, except a new source as defined in sub. (5), from which pollutants may be discharged either into waters of the state or into a POTW.
NR 256.03(4) (4) “Ferrous casting” means the remelting of ferrous metals to form an intermediate or final cast product by pouring or forcing the molten metal into a mold.
NR 256.03(5) (5) “New source”, as defined for new source performance standards and pretreatment standards for new sources, means any point source from which pollutants are or may be discharged directly into the waters of the state or into a POTW, the construction of which commenced after November 15, 1982.
NR 256.03(6) (6) “Noncontinuous discharger” means a plant which does not discharge pollutants during periods of at least 24 hours in duration for reasons other than an upset, such as plants which routinely store wastewater for treatment on a batch basis.
NR 256.03(7) (7) “Total phenols” means total phenolic compounds as measured by the test procedure for phenols, which is distillation followed by manual or automated colorimetric (4AAP), as indicated in ch. NR 219, Table B, for parameter 48.
NR 256.03(8) (8) “Zinc casting” means the remelting of zinc or a zinc alloy to form an intermediate or final cast product by pouring or forcing the molten metal into a mold.
NR 256.03(9) (9) Abbreviations to be used:
NR 256.03(9)(a) (a) “SCF” means standard cubic feet.
NR 256.03(9)(b) (b) “Sm 3” means standard cubic meters.
NR 256.03(9)(c) (c) “TTO” and “total toxic organics” mean the sum of the mass of each of the toxic organic compounds specified in the tables within this chapter which are found at a concentration greater than 0.010 mg/l.
NR 256.03 History History: Cr. Register, June, 1989, No. 402, eff. 7-1-89.
NR 256.04 NR 256.04 Monitoring and reporting requirements.
NR 256.04(1)(1) Total toxic organics. An indirect discharger may elect to monitor for oil and grease as an alternate to TTO under PSES and PSNS regulatory values. Due to the high solubility of toxic organics in oil and grease, compliance with the oil and grease standard is considered equivalent to compliance with the TTO standard.
NR 256.04(2) (2)Noncontinuous dischargers.
