(A)   Suspension due to illicit discharges in emergency situations. The town, without prior notice, may suspend MS4 discharge access to a person when such suspension is necessary to stop an actual or potential discharge which poses or may pose a threat to the environment, or to the health or welfare of persons, or to the MS4, or waters of the United States. The authorized enforcement agent and/or the Town Council may take all steps deemed necessary to prevent or minimize damage to the MS4 or waters of the United States, or to minimize the risk to any person.
   (B)   Non-emergency suspension due to the detection of illicit discharge. Any person discharging to the MS4 in violation of this subchapter may have MS4 access terminated if such termination would eliminate or minimize an illicit discharge. The authorized enforcement agent will notify a violator of the proposed termination of MS4 access. The violator may petition the Town Council for a reconsideration and hearing. A person commits an offense if the person accesses the MS4 after access has been terminated pursuant to this section, without the prior approval of the authorized enforcement agent.
