Wastewater discharge permits shall include such conditions as are reasonably deemed necessary by the Superintendent to prevent pass through or interference, protect the quality of the water body receiving the POTWs effluent, protect worker health and safety, facilitate sludge management and disposal, protect ambient air quality, and protect against damage to the POTW.
   (A)   Wastewater discharge permits must contain the following conditions:
      (1)   A statement that indicates wastewater discharge permit duration, which in no event shall exceed five years.

   (B)   Wastewater discharge permits may contain, but need not be limited to the following:
      (1)   Limits on the average and/or maximum rate of discharge, time of discharge, and/or requirements for flow regulation and equalization.
      (2)   Limits on the instantaneous, daily and monthly average and/or maximum concentration, mass, or other measure of identified wastewater pollutants or properties.
      (3)   Requirements for the installation of pretreatment technology, pollution control, or construction of appropriate containment devices, designed to reduce, eliminate, or prevent the introduction of pollutants into the POTW.
      (4)   Development and implementation of spill control plans or other special conditions including management practices necessary to adequately prevent accidental, unanticipated, or non-routine discharges.
      (5)   Development and implementation of waste minimization plans to reduce the amount of pollutants discharged to the POTW.

      (7)   Requirements for installation and maintenance of inspection and sampling facilities and equipment.
      (8)   A statement that compliance with the wastewater discharge permit does not relieve the permittee of responsibility for compliance with all applicable federal and state pretreatment standards, including those which become effective during the term of the wastewater discharge permit.
