  • Reissuance Table 2-IV-C analyses.

Slide 7

Regulating Selenium in Permits

New and expanded

  • Limits effective upon discharge.

  • Surface mines - material handling plan.

    Reissuance

  • Surface mines may be modified to include material handling plan.

  • Compliance schedule with interim requirements.

Slide 8

Selenium Compliance Orders

Interim requirements

  • Meeting with regional staff.

  • Surface mines - material handling plan.

  • Treatment plan.
