        equivalent of a secondary treatment facility if each of the 
        following requirements is met:
                    ``(A) The facility employs chemically enhanced 
                primary treatment.
                    ``(B) The facility, on the date of the enactment of 
                this paragraph, discharges through an ocean outfall 
                into an open marine environment greater than 4 miles 
                offshore into a depth greater than 300 feet.
                    ``(C) The facility's discharge is in compliance 
                with all local and State water quality standards for 
                the receiving waters.
                    ``(D) The facility's discharge will be subject to 
                an ocean monitoring program acceptable to relevant 
                Federal and State regulatory agencies.''.
            Passed the House of Representatives July 25, 1995.
