(A) No discharge permit shall be issued by the city to any person whose discharge of material to sewers, whether shown upon his application or determined after inspection and testing conducted by the city, is not in conformity with city ordinances, and regulations, unless a variance of such nonconformity is granted by the Board in the manner set forth in this chapter. The Superintendent shall state the reason or reasons for denial or requirement for variance in writing, which shall be mailed or personally delivered to the applicant within five days after denial or determination of a need for a variance. Where a variance is required, users shall follow the procedures set forth in this chapter. Such petition for variance shall be filed within 15 days of the receipt of the Superintendent's requirements for a variance.
(B) If the application is deemed unsatisfactory by the Superintendent, or if the discharge indicated from the permit application or inspection is not in accordance with the requirements of this chapter, the user may obtain review of the denial by the Board, provided that the user shall give written notice of this request therefore, within 30 days after receipt of such denial. The Board shall review the permit application, the written denial and such other evidence and matters as the applicant and Superintendent shall present at the Board's next regular meeting following receipt of request for review, and the decision of the Board shall be final.
(C) In the event it is determined by the Superintendent that any discharge of wastewater to a sewer materially and substantially differs in type and volume from those characteristics set forth in the application and discharge permit issued based on a said application, the user shall be subject to revocation of discharge permit, disconnection, fine, and other penalties as herein provided.
