been used as rough field screening
tool, and it is completely inappropriate as a legally-binding standard on
its own. Compared with the development of other water quality standards, EPA has skipped or ignored a
myriad of technical issues with the
measurement and use of conductivity
and evaluation of treatment options.
NSSGA's view, based on available
scientific data, is that a standard for
conductivity is unsupportable. The
agency has not performed the minimum required to provide the states

with the necessary information to
develop a conductivity standard. EPA
and state technical documents indicate that conductivity is useful for
screening, but of little value on its
own. While NSSGA strongly opposes
a conductivity standard for scientific and feasibility reasons, EPA at a minimum - needs to show that
there is a need for a standard, that
there is a causal relationship between
macroinvertebrates and conductivity, that conductivity is preferable
to other, more specific analyses, and

that wastewater treatment methods
exist to attain a standard.
Furthermore, EPA has shirked its
water quality standard development
requirements under the CWA. There
would be enormous consequences to
states by encouraging a nebulous water
quality standard which could trigger a
host of other requirements, imposing
an impossible burden on the regulated
community. The CWA sets forth a clear
procedure that has not been followed
with the issuance of this draft guidance, and the EPA has not considered
the effects on the aggregates industry
and economy at large.
Startup, Shutdown and
Malfunction Provisions
Over the years, the federal courts
have held that Startup, Shutdown
and Malfunction (SSM) provisions
in state implementation plans (SIPs)
are necessary to ensure that emission limitations based on attainment
of the National Ambient Air Quality
Standards (NAAQS) are feasible. The
same is true with respect to emission
limits based on new source performance standards. EPA's revisions in
2015 (80FR33840) deviated from EPA's
longstanding SSM policy by declaring
that SIP provisions providing an affirmative enforcement defense in startup
and shutdown situations are no longer
acceptable. The stated reason is that
because those are "planned" events,
the source operator should be able to
keep emissions within the limits. That
is not the case in our industry, and the
approach conflicts with court decisions; therefore, EPA re-instate this
provision.
Additional controls to prevent
excess emissions during SSM events
for NSSGA member operations are
infeasible and in most cases also
unnecessary to assure attainment of
the NAAQS. Beyond that, the overwhelming weight of the relevant
judicial precedent is opposed to EPA's
proposed approach. This is confirmed
by over 30 years of prior EPA policy
recognizing the necessity of the
defense. EPA should grant an exemption or affirmative defense for excess
emissions from SSM situations.
