When the Superintendent finds that a user has violated, or continues to violate, any provision of this subchapter, a wastewater discharge permit or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or requirement, the Superintendent may serve upon that user a written notice of violation or notice of noncompliance.  Within 30 days of the receipt of this notice, an explanation of the violation and a plan for the satisfactory correction and prevention thereof, to include specific required actions, shall be submitted by the user to the Superintendent.  Submission of this plan in no way relieves the user of liability for any violations occurring before or after receipt of the notice of violation.  A notice of violation may incorporate compliance orders and/or cease and desist orders as described in §§ 52.158 and 52.159 of this chapter.  Nothing in this section shall limit the authority of the Superintendent to take any action, including emergency actions or any other enforcement action, without first issuing a notice of violation.
