The following statements apply to the modification.
 
On the basis of preliminary staff review and application of standards and regulations, the Director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a proposed modification for the aforementioned discharge subject to certain effluent conditions and special conditions. The proposed modification is tentative but shall become final on the effective date unless: 1) an adjudication hearing is requested, 2) the Director withdraws and revised the proposed modification after consideration of the record of a public meeting, written comments, or statements, or 3) upon disapproval by the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
 
Within forty-five days of publication of this notice, any person may submit written comments, a statement as to why the proposed modification should be changed, a request for a public meeting on the proposed modification, and/or a request for notice of further actions concerning the modification. All communications timely received will be considered in the final formulation of the modification. If significant public interest is shown, a public meeting will be held prior to finalization of the modification. 
 
New or Revised Water Quality based Effluent Limitations  This proposed modification may contain new or revised water quality based effluent limitation(s) (WQBELs). In accordance with Ohio Revised Code Section 6111.03(J)(3), the Director establishes WQBELs after considering, to the extent consistent with  the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, evidence relating to the technical feasibility and economic reasonableness of removing the polluting properties from those wastes and to evidence relating to conditions calculated to result from that action and their relation to benefits to the people of the state and to accomplishment of the purposes of this chapter. This determination was made based on all pertinent data and information available to the Director at the time the modification was drafted.
 
This public notice hereby allows the permittee to provide to the Director for consideration during this public comment period, additional site-specific pertinent and factual information with respect to the technical feasibility and economic reasonableness for achieving compliance with any new or revised WQBEL(s). This information shall be submitted to the addresses listed below.
 
Should the applicant need additional time to review, obtain or develop site-specific pertinent and factual information with respect to the technical feasibility and economic reasonableness of achieving compliance with a new or revised WQBEL(s), written notification for an additional time shall be sent no late than 45 days after the date of this public notice to the Director at the addresses listed below.
 
Should the applicant determine that compliance with a new or revised WQBEL is technically and/or economically unattainable, the permittee may submit an application for a variance to the applicable WQBEL in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Rule 3745-33-07(D) no later than 45 days after the date of this public notice to the addresses listed below.
 
Alternately, the applicant may propose the development of site-specific water quality standard(s) pursuant to OAC Rule 3745-1-35. The permittee shall submit written notification to the Director regarding their intent to develop site-specific water quality standards for the pollutant at issue to the addresses listed below no later than 30 days after the date of this public notice.
