§408.270   Applicability; description of the steamed and canned oyster processing subcategory.

The provisions of this subpart are applicable to discharges resulting from oysters which are mechanically shucked.

§408.271   Specialized definitions.

For the purpose of this subpart:

(a) Except as provided below, the general definitions, abbreviations and methods of analysis set forth in part 401 of this chapter shall apply to this subpart.

(b) The term product shall mean the weight of the oyster meat after shucking.

§408.272   Effluent limitations guidelines representing the degree of effluent reduction attainable by the application of the best practicable control technology currently available.

Except as provided in §§125.30 through 125.32, any existing point source subject to this subpart shall achieve the following effluent limitations representing the degree of effluent reduction attainable by the application of the best practicable control technology currently available (BPT):

Effluent characteristicEffluent limitations
