(A) (1) No user shall contribute or cause to be contributed, directly or indirectly, any pollutant waste water which will interfere with performance of the POTW.
(2) These general prohibitions apply to all such users of a POTW whether or not the user is subject to national categorical pretreatment standards or any other national, state or local pretreatment standards or requirements.
(B) A user shall not contribute the following substances to the POTW:
(1) Any liquids, solids or gases which by reason of their nature or quantity are, or may be, sufficient either alone or by interaction with other substances to cause fire or explosion or be injurious in any other way to the POTW or to the operation of the POTW. At no time shall the waste water exhibit a closed cup flashpoint of less than 140°F or 60°C using the test methods specified in 40 C.F.R. § 261.21;
(2) Any waters or wastes having a pH lower than five or higher than ten or having any other corrosive property capable of causing damage or hazard to structures, equipment and personnel of the POTW;
(3) Any slug load of pollutants, including oxygen demanding pollutants (BOD and the like) released at a flow rate and/or concentration that will cause interference with the normal operation of the POTW;
(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 waste water facilities (i.e., wood, glass, ashes, sand, cinders, unshredded garbage, paper products such as cups, dishes, napkins and milk containers and the like);
(5) Any waste water having a temperature which will inhibit biological activity in the POTW treatment plant resulting in interference, but in no case waste water with a temperature at the introduction into the POTW that will result in a treatment plant influent temperature which exceeds 40°C (104°F);
(6) Any pollutant(s) which result in the presence of toxic gases, vapors or fumes within the POTW in a quantity that may cause acute worker health and safety problems;
(7) Any substance which may cause the POTW’s effluent or any other product of the POTW such as residues, sludges or scum, to he unsuitable for reclamation and reuse or to interfere with the reclamation process where the POTW is pursuing a reuse and reclamation program. In no case shall a substance discharged to the POTW cause the POTW to be in non-compliance with sludge use or disposal criteria, guidelines or regulations developed under § 405 of the Act; any criteria, guidelines or regulations affecting sludge use or disposal developed pursuant to the Solid Waste Disposal Act being 42 U.S.C. §§ 6901 et seq., the Clean Air Act being 42 U.S.C. §§ 7401 et seq., the Toxic Substances Control Act being 15 U.S.C. §§ 2601 et seq. or state criteria applicable to the sludge management method being used;
(8) Any substance which will cause the POTW to violate its NPDES/KPDES permit and/or sludge disposal system permit;
(9) Petroleum oil, non-biodegradable cutting oil or products of mineral oil origin in amounts that will cause interference or pass through at the POTW; and/or
(10) Any trucked or hauled pollutants except at discharge points designed by the POTW.
