The city may, for good cause shown, suspend the wastewater treatment service to a discharger when it appears to the Superintendent of Utilities that an actual or threatened discharge presents or threatens an imminent or substantial danger to the health or welfare of persons, substantial danger to the environment, interference with the operation of the POTW, or violation of any pretreatment limits specified by this chapter. Any discharger notified of the suspension of wastewater treatment service shall, within a reasonable period of time, as determined by the Superintendent, cease all discharges. In the event of failure of the discharger to comply voluntarily with the suspension order within the specified time, the city shall commence judicial proceedings immediately thereafter to compel the discharger’s compliance with such order. The city may reinstate the wastewater treatment service and terminate judicial proceedings upon receipt of proof by the discharger of the elimination of the non-complying discharge or conditions creating the threat of imminent or substantial danger as set forth in this section.
