A. Authority: The Public Works Department may inspect the equipment and facilities of any users at any reasonable time to ascertain compliance with applicable ordinances, rules and regulations. Persons or occupants of premises where wastewater is created or discharged shall allow department personnel ready access to the premises for the purposes of inspection, sampling, records examination and copying, and performance of their duties. The department shall have the right to set upon the user's property such devices as are necessary to conduct sampling, inspection, compliance monitoring and/or metering operations. Where a user has security measures in force which would require proper identification and clearance before entry into its premises, the user shall make the necessary arrangements with the security guards so that, upon presentation of suitable identification, department personnel will be permitted to enter without delay for the purposes of performing their specific responsibilities. While performing the necessary work on private property, department personnel shall observe all security and safety rules applicable to the premises, as established by the user.
B. Refusal To Admit: If a duly authorized representative of the department is refused admission to a user's premises, the department may discontinue sewer service to the premises until the department has been afforded reasonable access to the premises and private sewer system, so as to accomplish the inspection or sampling.
