(A)   Any user found to be violating any provisions of this chapter, waste water permit or any order issued hereunder, shall be served by the city with written notice stating the nature of the violation(s). Within ten days of the receipt date of this notice, an explanation of the violation and a plan for the satisfactory correction and prevention thereof, to include specific required actions, shall be submitted to the Superintendent. Submission of this plan in no way relieves the user of potential liability for any violation occurring before or after receipt of the notice of violation.
   (B)   If the violations persist or the explanation and/or plan are not adequate, the city’s response shall be more formal and commitments (or schedules as appropriate) for compliance will be established in an enforceable document. The enforcement response selected will be related to the seriousness of the violation. Enforcement responses will be escalated if compliance is not achieved expeditiously after the initial action. A significant non-compliance, as defined in § 52.094 of this chapter, will require a formal enforcement action.
   (C)   The full scale of enforcement actions will be as detailed in the enforcement response plan.
