(A) Upon notification by the Superintendent of Utilities that pretreatment of an industrial user’s wastewater discharges is required, the user shall:
(1) Submit to the Superintendent, within 14 calendar days of notification, a statement acknowledging the notification and indicating the user’s intent to proceed to provide remedial pretreatment equipment and/or procedures; and
(2) Submit to the Superintendent, as directed, a proposed compliance schedule to carry out the necessary work leading to implementation of operations/procedural changes, or installation of pretreatment facilities within the shortest time possible. The compliance schedule shall indicate the separate milestone steps to be taken, the dates for completion of each step and a final date for achieving compliance.
(B) If the original compliance schedule is not acceptable to the Superintendent, the user shall submit additional information, data or a revised schedule within 30 days of notification of the unacceptable provisions submitted. Failure to submit an acceptable compliance program shall be considered unsatisfactory progress and may result in orders to remove the unacceptable discharge from the sewerage system, or refusal to permit a proposed new discharge.
(C) Upon acceptance by the Superintendent of the pretreatment compliance program, the industrial user shall proceed to implement the program in accordance with the compliance schedule as accepted. The user shall submit periodic progress reports as required by the Superintendent, indicating whether or not the scheduled milestone dates are being achieved and, if not, what steps are being taken to return to the approved schedule for meeting the final compliance date.
(D) Failure to meet the compliance schedule milestone dates, final compliance date or reporting requirements shall be subject to enforcement pursuant to the applicable provisions of this chapter, including notice of violation, administrative fees, revocation of treatment service and penalty action.
