      (2)   At the discretion of the Superintendent and in consideration of such factors as local high or low flow rates, holidays, budget cycles and the like, the Superintendent may agree to alter the months during which the above reports are to be submitted.
   (B)   All analyses shall be performed by a laboratory acceptable to the city.

      (3)   Waste water characteristics: total plant flow, types of discharges, average and maximum flows from each process;
      (4)   Nature/concentration of pollutants: analytical results for all pollutants regulated by this chapter and/or any applicable federal pretreatment standard and sample type and location. All analyses must conform with 40 C.F.R. part 136 and amendments thereto; and
      (5)   Information concerning any pretreatment equipment used to treat the facility’s discharge.
   (E)   New sources shall give estimates of the information requested in divisions (C) and (D) above, but at no time shall a new source commence discharge(s) to the public sewer of substances that do not meet provisions of this chapter.
