Technology-based Effluent Limitations for POTWs

(28 minutes viewing time; 15 minutes to complete quiz)

The presentation you are about to view is entitled "Technology-based Effluent Limitations for Publicly-Owned Treatment Works (POTWs)." This presentation is part of a self-paced Web-based training series sponsored by USEPA's Water Permits Division. It provides an overview of the national technology-based standards for POTWs and the process for implementing those standards through NPDES permits.

Here is how you navigate through the presentation:

Use the TABS on the left-hand side of the screen to choose an outline, thumbnails, or notes view. If you want to comment or ask as question, click the email link to contact the instructor. You can pause or go back to a previous slide much like using a DVD player. Hitting the "UP ARROW" or "DOWN ARROW" will go back to the beginning of the previous slide or move to the beginning of the next slide.

There is an 8-question quiz at the end of this presentation. You must pass this quiz in order to complete the presentation and print a certificate of completion. A passing score is 80 out of 100 points. The questions on the quiz have different point values based on level of difficulty. The point value for each question is indicated as that question in presented in the quiz. If you do not pass the quiz, you are automatically returned to the beginning of the presentation. From there, you are able to move through the presentation and review any slides you would like to review before repeating the quiz.
