Recommendations

Develop guidelines and procedures to allow the following:

Use of collaborative monitoring requirements and studies;

Reduced compliance monitoring frequency and constituent monitoring based upon the discharger’s compliance record; and

Use of surrogate monitoring where a constituent that can be easily and inexpensively analyzed is substituted for a constituent that is more costly and more difficult to analyze.

Recommendations

Recommend necessary policy development efforts to further address cost of compliance with NPDES permits.

Work with the TMDL Roundtable and stakeholders to implement a phased approach to TMDLs.

Continue developing general permits for similar types of dischargers.
