The following are restricted:
   (A)   Waste water containing more than 50 milligrams per liter of petroleum oil, non-biodegradable cutting oils or products of mineral oil origin;
   (B)   Waste water containing floatable oils, fat or grease, whether emulsified or not, in excess of 100 milligrams per liter (100 mg/l) or containing substances which may solidify or become viscous at temperatures 32-150°F (0-65°C);
   (C)   Any garbage that has not been properly shredded. Garbage grinders may be connected to sanitary sewers from homes, motels, institutions, restaurants, hospitals, catering establishments or similar places where garbage originates from the preparation of food in kitchens for the purpose of consumption on the premises or when served by caterers;
   (D)   Any waste water containing toxic pollutants in sufficient quantity, either singly or by interaction with other pollutants which: injure or interfere with any waste water treatment process; constitute a hazard to humans or animals; causes the city to violate the terms of its KPDES permit; prevents the use of acceptable sludge disposal methods; or exceed a limitation set forth in a categorical pretreatment standard;
   (E)   Any radioactive wastes or isotopes of such half-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by the city in compliance with applicable state and federal regulations;
   (F)   Any water or wastes which by interaction with other water or wastes in the public sewer system, release obnoxious gases, form suspended solids which interfere with the collection system or create a condition deleterious to structures and treatment processes;
   (G)   Any waste water with objectable color which cannot be removed to an acceptable level within the operation of the waste water treatment process;
   (H)   Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amendable to treatment or reduction by the waste water treatment processes employed to the extent required by the city’s NPDES/KPDES permit;
   (I)   Any waste(s) or waste water(s) classified as a hazardous waste by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) without a 60-day prior notification of such discharge to the Superintendent. This notification must include the name of the hazardous waste, the EPA hazardous waste number, type of discharge, volume/mass of discharge and time of occurrence(s). The Superintendent may prohibit or condition the discharge(s) at any time;
   (J)   Waste water identified as causing, alone or in conjunction with other sources, the treatment plant’s effluent to fail a toxicity test;
   (K)   Recognizable portions of human or animal anatomy;
   (L)   Any wastes containing detergents, surface active agents or other substances which will cause excessive foaming in the municipal waste water system;
   (M)   (1)   Any water or wastes which have characteristics based on a 24-hour composite sample, grab or a shorter period composite sample, if more representative, that exceed the following normal maximum domestic waste water parameter concentrations:
Maximum Allowable Concentration Without Surcharges
250 mg/l
375 mg/l
250 mg/l
40 mg/l
Oil and grease [total]
100 mg/l
      (2)   Any person discharging waste water exceeding the maximum allowable concentration as noted above, will be subject to a surcharge fee for each pound loading over and above the set limit. Any other amenable constituents requiring the additional of specific chemicals for proper treatment will also be subject to a surcharge as noted on the waste water discharge permit. Exceedance of the effluent limits specified above shall not be deemed to constitute a violation of a permit condition of this chapter if the appropriated surcharge fee is paid and the discharge does not cause interference or pass through of the POTW.
   (N)   The following limitations are established for characteristics of any waste waters to be discharged into the municipal sewer system. All significant industrial users must comply with these limitations where they are more stringent than applicable state and/or federal regulations.
Maximum Daily Concentration (mg/L)
Maximum Daily Concentration (mg/L)
[These parameters are to be determined by amendment if and when applicable]
Cyanide, total
Total toxic organics
   (O)   (1)   The city has received authority through the U.S. EPA and state statutes to enforce the requirements of 40 C.F.R. Subch. N, 40 C.F.R. part 403 and 40 C.F.R. part 35.
