§ 53.018  LOCAL LIMITS.
   (A)   The following pollutant limits are established to protect against pass through and interference.

Local discharge limits are established on a case-by-case basis. Thus, the following table may be further evaluated.] No person shall discharge wastewater containing in excess of the following instantaneous maximum allowable discharge limits:
