The discharger shall take all reasonable steps to minimize any adverse impact to the MS4 or the waters of the state, including accelerated or additional monitoring necessary to determine the nature and impact of the discharge. It shall not be a defense for the discharger in an enforcement action to claim that it would have been necessary to halt or reduce the business or activity of the facility in order to maintain water quality and minimize any adverse impact that the discharge may cause.
