re: Car Wash Wastewater
Regarding your question #2, "Has EPA issued a development document for
this kind of wastewater"
I don't think you'll find a category being developed for car washes. The
closest related category
USEPA is currently developing is the "Transportation Equipment Cleaning"
category. I believe this
category primarily is being developed to address aircraft deicing, and the
cleaning of tank
trucks, rail tank cars and tank barges. There is preliminary information
available from USEPA
on this category.
The contact person at USEPA for this category is Gina Matthews at (202)
The contact person at USEPA for general information (including categories
being studied and under
development) for USEPA's Effluent Guidelines Plan is Eric Strassler at (202)
You may also find information on car washes at the Water Environment
Federation hompepage at
www.wef.org under the Technical Discussion Groups/Industrial Waste
Treatment. You can also post a
question at this site.
