Hopewell Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility

To recognize and take advantage of Hopewell Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility's (HRWTF) unique treatment capabilities, to minimize redundant pretreatment, and to create opportunities to reduce pollutant loadings below what otherwise would be possible, HRWTF and its stakeholders have designed an XL project that places HRWTF and selected industrial users under a regulatory "bubble" for all wastewater-related requirements. The HRWTF Bubble includes indirect dischargers and those portions of their wastestreams determined to be compatible with HRWTF, including discharges currently covered by Organic Chemical, Plastics, and Synthetic Fibers Industries (OCPSF) and Pulp and Paper regulations. The bubble also includes Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) program reporting of wastewater-based releases, and wastewater-related National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and Fugitive Air Emission requirements. Additionally, HRWTF will reconfigure certain administrative, monitoring, and reporting activities currently prescribed by the national pretreatment program to support assessing and tracking the environmental performance of "the bubble."
