(A) Each industrial user shall provide protection from accidental or slug discharges to the sewerage system of the prohibited or regulated wastes identified in this chapter, as well as any other substance or material that would cause interference or pass through of the POTW treatment plant. Facilities to prevent accidental discharges may include walls or dikes, separate storage, removal of drain lines from locations where significant quantities of harmful materials can enter sewerage systems, or other appropriate control procedures. The plan shall be reviewed once during the term of the significant industrial user’s administrative orders to control the user’s discharge to the sanitary sewer or within one year of being identified as a significant industrial user.
(B) Where such protection facilities are determined to be inadequate to control or eliminate accidental or slug discharges, the authority may require submission of spill prevention and control plans, and the installation of additional control facilities by the user. Plans shall be submitted to the Superintendent of Utilities for approval prior to construction or implementation. Review and approval of such plans or procedures shall not relieve the user of responsibility for preventing the discharge of unacceptable materials to the sewerage system.
(C) Any significant industrial user that wishes to make significant changes to the user’s operations or pretreatment system which might alter the nature, quality of volume of its wastewater must notify the Superintendent of Utilities at least 30 days prior to the change.
