(A) At the discretion of the Superintendent of Utilities, any user discharging to the sewerage system shall provide, operate and maintain, at the discharger’s own expense, a monitoring facility to enable inspection, sampling, and flow measurement of each waste water discharge to the POTW. The Superintendent may require the user to install appropriate sampling and flow monitoring equipment where needed to determine compliance with applicable pretreatment standards or extra-strength surcharges.
(B) Each monitoring facility shall be located on the user’s premises, except, where such a location would be impractical; the Superintendent may concur with construction on the public sidewalk or berm. Facility locations shall be free of obstruction by equipment, parked vehicles or landscaping, and be free of moving vehicular traffic hazards. There shall be ample room in or near such sampling facility to allow accurate sampling and preparation of samples for analysis. All monitoring instrumentation required shall be periodically calibrated and maintenance procedures shall be performed to ensure accuracy of measurements. Flow measuring devices shall be calibrated at a minimum of once per year, and a written statement of calibration, giving the date performed and the name of the qualified service agent, shall be submitted to the Superintendent for each calibration performed.
(C) Plans for the monitoring facilities shall be submitted for approval to the Superintendent within 60 days of notification of the need for a facility. The installation shall be completed within 90 days of the plan approval by the Superintendent.
(D) Access to the monitoring facility shall be made available immediately to authorized representatives of the Superintendent for the purpose of inspection, or conducting independent sampling and monitoring activities.
