   Wastes discharged into the sewer system shall not have characteristics which by themselves or by interaction with other wastes may:
   (a)   Endanger the health and safety of the public or city personnel;
   (b)   Cause corrosion or other damage to the sewer system;
   (c)   Create nuisance such as odors or coloration;
   (d)   Result in extra cost of collection, treatment, or disposal;
   (e)   Interfere with, inhibit or disrupt any wastewater treatment process of the plant, its treatment processes, sludge processes, or operations in such manner to cause violations of the plant's NPDES permit, or any regulatory requirement, or result in the use of sludge in noncompliance with any applicable requirements. This shall include instances due to flow rate and/or pollutant concentration, including oxygen-demanding pollutants (BOD, etc.) and applies to increases in magnitude or duration of violation by the plant;
   (f)   Pass through or exit the plant into waters of the United States in quantities or concentrations which contribute to a violation of any regulatory requirement applicable to the plant. This shall include increases in magnitude or duration of any violation or period of noncompliance;
   (g)   Cause the temperature of the influent flow to the plant to exceed 40°C (104°F);
   (h)   Prevent, hinder, delay, or impede compliance with effluent quality requirements established by regulatory agencies, or exceed the same;
   (i)   Cause wastewater quality to fall outside reclamation feasibility limits; or
   (j)   Obstruct flows within the sewer system or otherwise cause or contribute to sanitary sewer overflows.
