Specifications include, but are not limited to: • Develop and implement a plan to provide education, outreach and technical assistance to WWTF
operators subject to the Long Island Sound Nitrogen TMDL and Lake Champlain Phosphorus TMDL.
Priority will be given to wastewater facilities in the Lake Champlain basin that will need to upgrade
their facilities under the Lake Champlain TMDL. This task includes developing and implementing a
plan for training wastewater treatment facility operators on different strategies to optimize facility
processes to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus loadings. Special focus should be given to no cost – low

In coordination with the Wastewater Section, provide technical assistance to WWTFs related to
managing discharges from industrial users. This may include providing assistance to WWTFs with
sampling industrial users connected to the municipal collection system, characterizing influent
wastewater and contributions from industrial users, and developing local limits and sewer use
ordinance conditions to manage discharges of industrial and process wastewater received by the
