A.   Storm And Surface Waters:
      1.   No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged any stormwater, surface water, ground water, roof runoff, subsurface drainage, uncontaminated cooling water or unpolluted industrial process waters to any public sanitary sewer.
      2.   Stormwater and all other unpolluted drainage shall be discharged to storm sewers or to a natural outlet approved by the superintendent. Industrial cooling water or unpolluted process waters may be discharged, upon approval of the superintendent, to a storm sewer or natural outlet.
   B.   Prohibited Discharges: No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged any of the following described waters or wastes to any public sewers:
      1.   Any gasoline, benzene, naphtha, fuel oil, or other flammable or explosive liquid, solid, or gas.
      2.   Any waters or wastes containing toxic or poisonous solids, liquids, or gases in sufficient quantity, either singly or by interaction with other wastes, to injure or interfere with any sewage treatment process, constitute a hazard to humans or animals, create a public nuisance, or create any hazard in the receiving waters of the sewage treatment plant.
      3.   Any waters or wastes having a pH lower than 5.5 or higher than 9.5, or having any other corrosive property capable of causing damage or hazard to structures, equipment, and personnel of the sewerage works.
      4.   Solid or viscous substances in quantities or of such size capable of causing obstruction to the flow in sewers, or other interference with the proper operation of the sewerage works such as, but not limited to, ashes, cinders, sand, mud, straw, shavings, metal, glass, rags, feathers, tar, plastics, wood, garbage, whole blood, paunch manure, hair and fleshings, entrails, and paper dishes, cups, milk containers, etc., either whole or ground by garbage grinders.
   C.   Restricted Discharges:
      1.   No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged to a public sanitary sewer the following described substances, materials, waters, or wastes if it appears likely, in the opinion of the superintendent, that such waters or wastes can harm either the sewers, sewage treatment process, or equipment; have an adverse effect on the receiving stream; or can otherwise endanger life, limb or public property, or constitute a nuisance. In forming his opinions as to the acceptability of these wastes, the superintendent will give consideration to such factors as the quantities of such waters or wastes in relation to flows and velocities in the sewers, materials of construction of the sewers, nature of the sewage treatment process, capacity of the sewage treatment plant, degree of treatability of wastes in the sewage treatment plant, and maximum limits established by regulatory agencies. The substances prohibited are:
         a.   Any liquid or vapor having a temperature higher than one hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit (150°F) (65°C).
         b.   Any waters or wastes containing toxic or poisonous materials, or oils, whether emulsified or not, in excess of one hundred milligrams per liter (100 mg/l) or containing substances which may solidify or become viscous at temperatures between thirty two (32) and one hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit (150°F) (0° and 65°C).
         c.   Any garbage that has not been properly shredded. The installation and operation of any garbage grinder equipped with a motor of three-fourths (3/4) horsepower (0.76 hp metric) or greater shall be subject to the review and approval of the superintendent.
         d.   Any waters or wastes containing strong acid, iron pickling wastes, or concentrated plating solutions, whether neutralized or not.
         e.   Any waters or wastes containing iron, chromium, copper, zinc, or similar objectionable or toxic substances; or wastes exerting an excessive chlorine requirement, to such degree that any such material received at the sewage treatment works exceeds the limits established by the district for such materials.
         f.   Any waters or wastes containing phenols or other taste or odor producing substances in such concentrations exceeding limits which may be established by the district as necessary after treatment of the composite sewage to meet the requirements of the state, federal, or other public agencies of jurisdiction for such discharge to the receiving waters.
         g.   Any radioactive wastes or isotopes of such half-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by the district in compliance with applicable state or federal regulations.
         h.   Any mercury or any of its compounds in excess of 0.0005 milligrams per liter as Hg at any time, except as permitted by the district in compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.
         i.   Any cyanide in excess of 0.025 milligrams per liter at any time, except as permitted by the district in compliance with applicable state and federal regulations.
         j.   Materials which exert or cause:
            (1)   Unusual concentrations of inert suspended solids (such as, but not limited to, fuller's earth, lime slurries and lime residues) or of dissolved solids (such as, but not limited to, sodium chloride and sodium sulfate).
            (2)   Excessive discoloration (such as, but not limited to, dye wastes and vegetable tanning solutions).
            (3)   Unusual BOD, chemical oxygen demand, or chlorine requirements in such quantities as to constitute a significant load on the sewage treatment works.
            (4)   Unusual volume of flow or concentrations of wastes constituting "slugs" as defined in section 9-2-2 of this chapter.
         k.   Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amenable to treatment or reduction by the sewage treatment processes employed, or are amenable to treatment only to such a degree that the wastewater treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of agencies having jurisdiction over discharge to the receiving waters. (Ord. 81-O-8, 6-5-1981)
      2.   If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the public sanitary sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in subsection C1 of this section and/or which are in violation of the standards for pretreatment provided in chapter 1, EPA Rules And Regulations, subchapter D, Water Programs, part 128, Pretreatment Standards, federal register volume 38 no. 215, Thursday, November 8, 1973, and any amendments thereto, and which, in the judgment of the district, may have a deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment, or receiving waters, or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the superintendent may reject the wastes, require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sanitary sewers, require control over the quantities and rates of discharge, and/or require payment to cover the added costs of handling and treating the wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges. (Ord. 81-O-8, 6-5-1981; amd. 2009 Code)
      3.   If the superintendent permits the pretreatment or equalization of wastewater flows, the design and installation of the plants and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the superintendent and/or district and subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances, and laws. Where pretreatment or flow equalizing facilities are provided, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner at his expense. (Ord. 81-O-8, 6-5-1981)
