(A)   Detection of illicit discharge suspension. Any business, facility, or person discharging to the MS4 in violation of this subchapter may have their MS4 access terminated if such termination would abate or reduce an illicit discharge. The authorized enforcement agency will notify a violator of the proposed termination of its MS4 access. The violator may petition the authorized enforcement agency for a reconsideration and hearing. A person shall be considered in violation of this subchapter, if they reinstate MS4 access to premises terminated pursuant to this section, without the prior approval of the city MS4.
   (B)   Emergency suspension. The city MS4 may, without prior notice, suspend MS4 discharge access to a business, facility, or person when such suspension is necessary to stop an actual or threatened illicit discharge which may present imminent and substantial danger to the health and welfare of citizens, the environment, the MS4, or Waters of the State of Indiana. If the violator fails to comply with a suspension order issued during an emergency, the city MS4 may take such steps as deemed necessary to stop the violator's discharge into the MS4 conveyance system.
