(A) Each user shall provide protection from any discharge, including, but not limited to, accidental discharges, discharges of a non-routine, episodic nature, a non-customary batch discharge, or a slug load or slug, of prohibited wastewater, materials or other substances regulated by this chapter, or that may cause potential problems for the POTW. All facilities needed to prevent such discharges shall be provided and maintained at the user’s own cost and expense.
(B) The coordinator shall periodically evaluate whether each significant industrial user needs an accidental discharge/slug control plan. The coordinator may also require any user to develop, submit for approval, and implement such a plan. Alternatively, the coordinator may develop such a plan for any user. An accidental discharge/slug control plan shall address, at a minimum, the following:
(1) Description of discharge practices, including non-routine batch discharges;
(2) Description of stored chemicals;
(3) Procedures for immediately notifying the POTW of any accidental or slug discharge, as required by § 52.090; and
(4) Procedures to prevent adverse impact from any accidental or slug discharge. Such procedures include, but are not limited to, inspection and maintenance of storage areas, handling and transfer of materials, loading and unloading operations, control of plant site runoff, worker training, building of containment structures or equipment, flow equalization measures and/or facilities, measures for containing toxic organic pollutants, including solvents, and/or measures and equipment for emergency response.
