§ 51.15  SLUGS OR ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGES.
   (A)   The Superintendent may suspend the wastewater treatment service of a user and/or a wastewater discharge permit (after written notice to the discharger) when such suspension is necessary, in the opinion of the Superintendent, in order to stop an actual or threatened discharge which presents or may present an imminent or substantial endangerment to the health or welfare of persons, to the environment or to the wastewater treatment system, or would cause the city to violate any condition of its NPDES or state disposal system permit.
   (B)   Any user notified of a suspension of the wastewater treatment service and/or the wastewater discharge permit shall immediately cease and desist and stop the discharge. In the event of a failure of the user to comply voluntarily with the suspension order, the Superintendent shall take such steps as deemed necessary, including immediate severance of the sewer connection, to prevent or minimize damage to the wastewater treatment system or endangerment to any individuals. The Superintendent shall reinstate the wastewater discharge permit and/or the wastewater treatment service upon proof of the elimination of the non-complying discharge. A detailed written statement submitted by the user describing the causes of the slug or accidental discharge and the measures taken to prevent any future occurrence shall be submitted to the Superintendent within 15 days of the date of occurrence.
