(A)   No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged any storm water, surface runoff, roof run- off, sub-surface drain, cooling water or unpolluted industrial process waters to any sanitary sewer.
   (B)   Storm water and all other unpolluted drainage shall be discharged to the sewers as are specifically designated as combined sewers or storm sewers, or to a natural outlet as approved by the Superintendent of Public Works for the Town of Chandler, Indiana. Industrial cooling water or unpolluted process waters may be discharged into a storm sewer, a combined sewer, or a natural outlet, but required the prior approval of both the Sewer Inspector and the Superintendent of Public Works.
   (C)   Except as hereinafter provided, no person shall discharge or cause to be discharged any of the following described waters or waste to any public sewer:
      (1)   Any liquid or vapor having a temperature higher than 150°F;
      (2)   Any water or waste which may contain more than 100 parts per million by weight of fat, oil or grease;
      (3)   Any water or waste which may contain more than 25 parts per million by weight of soluble oils;
      (4)   Any gasoline, benzene, naphtha, fuel oil, or other flammable or explosive liquid, solid or gas;
      (5)   Any garbage that has not been properly shredded;
      (6)   Any ashes, cinders, sand, mud, straw, shavings, metal, glass, rags, feathers, tar, plastics, wood, paunch manure, or any other solid or viscous substance capable of causing obstruction to the flow in sewers or other interference with the proper operation of the Municipal Sewage Works System;
      (7)   Any waters having a pH lower than 6.0 or higher than 9.0, or having any other corrosive property capable of causing or damage or hazard to structures, equipment, and personnel of the Municipal Sewage Works;
      (8)   Any waters or waste containing a toxic or poisonous substance in sufficient quantity to injure or interfere with any sewage treatment process, constitute a hazard to humans or animals, or create any hazard in the receiving waters of the sewage treatment facility;
      (9)   Any waters or wastes containing suspended solids of such a character and quantity that unusual attention or expense is required to handle the materials at the Sewage Disposal Facility or in any of the lift stations within the system; and
      (10)   Any noxious or malodorous gas or substance capable of creating a public nuisance.
   (D)   Grease, oil, and sand interceptors shall be provided when, in the opinion of the Sewer Inspector, they are necessary for the proper handling of liquid wastes containing grease in excessive amounts, or any flammable wastes, sand, and other harmful ingredients; except that the interceptors shall not be required for private living quarters or dwelling units. All interceptors shall be of a type and capacity approved by the Sewer Inspector and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. Grease and oil interceptors shall be constructed of impervious materials capable of withstanding abrupt and extreme changes in temperature. They shall be of substantial construction, water tight, and equipped with easily removable covers which, when bolted in place, shall be gas tight and water tight.
   (E)   Where installed, all grease, oil and sand interceptors shall be maintained by the owner, at the owner's expense, in continuously efficient operation at all times.
   (F)   The admission into the public sewers of any water and wastes:
      (1)   Having a 5-day Biological Chemical Oxygen Demand greater than 400 parts per million;
      (2)   Containing more than 450 parts per million by weight of suspendable solids; or
      (3)   Containing any quantity of substances having the characteristics described in divisions (F)(1) and (2) above, having an average daily sewage flow greater than 2% of the average daily sewage flow of the Chandler Wastewater Facility, and shall be subject to the review and approval of the Sewer Inspector. Where necessary, in the opinion of the Sewer Inspector, the owner shall provide at his or her expense, the preliminary treatment as may be necessary to:
         (a)   Reduce the Biological Chemical Oxygen Demand to 400 parts per million and the suspended solids to 450 parts per million by weight; or
         (b)   Reduce objectionable characteristics or constituents to within the maximum limits provided for in divisions (F)(1) and (2) above, or control the quantities and rates of discharge of the waters or wastes. Plans, specifications and any other pertinent information relating to proposed preliminary treatment facilities shall be submitted for the approval of the Sewer Inspector and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, and no construction of the facilities shall be commenced until the approval is obtained in writing from both parties.
   (G)   Where preliminary treatment facilities are provided for any waters or wastes, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner at his or her expense.
   (H)   (1)   It shall be required that the owner of any property served by a building sewer carrying industrial wastes shall install a suitable control manhole in the building sewer to facilitate observation, sampling and measurement of the wastes, and shall be accessible and safely located, and shall be constructed in accordance with plans approved by the Sewer Inspector.
      (2)   The manhole shall be installed by the owner, at his or her expense, and shall be maintained by him or her so as to be safe and accessible at all times.
   (I)   All measurements, tests, and analysis of the characteristics of waters and wastes shall be determined in accordance with Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Sewage, and shall be determined at the control manhole, or upon suitable samples taken at the control manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been required, the control manhole shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected.
   (J)   No statement contained in this subchapter shall be construed as preventing any special agreement between the Town of Chandler, Indiana, and any commercial or industrial or other concern whereby waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the Town of Chandler, Indiana, for treatment, subject to payment thereof and the terms of the agreement being reduced to written form.
   (K)   No person shall discharge, or cause to be discharged, by any means of a sump pump, or any other device, any storm water, surface water, area way drains, driveway drains, parking lot drains, ground water, roof runoff water, sub-surface drainage, foundation drains, down spouts, footing drains, or any other non polluted waters to any sanitary sewer.
   (L)   No person shall hereafter connect or reconnect any drains or items as listed in division (K) above, which is in turn connected directly or indirectly to the Chandler Sewer System.
   (M)   Each person shall install a clean out within 5 feet of the building foundation. The clean out shall be constructed with at least 6 inch sewer pipe, equal to or greater than SDR 35, which shall be capped, and will be installed at ground level. Costs associated with the installation of the clean out will be at the responsibility of the owner. Clean out installation shall be inspected by the Sewer Inspector.
