(A) Pursuant to the requirements imposed on publicly owned wastewater treatment works by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments, all pretreatment standards promulgated by the U.S. EPA under 40 CFR Subchapter N and 40 CFR 403 for new and existing industrial discharges to public sewer systems are hereby made a part of this article. Any industrial waste discharge which violates these EPA Pretreatment Standards will be in violation of this article.
(B) Where pretreatment of flow equalizing facilities are provided or required for any waters or wastes, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfaction and effective operation at the owner’s expense.
(C) Any person who transports septic tank contents, seepage pit or cesspool contents, liquid industrial waste or other batch liquid waste and wishes to discharge to the public sewer system shall apply for a waste hauler discharge permit to the Superintendent. A fee of three hundred dollars ($300.00) is to be paid at the time of application. Upon completion of the application, a discharge permit will be issued for a one (1) year time period and will be renewed each year. A fee of twenty dollars ($20.00) will be charged for each one thousand (1,000) gallons discharged at the wastewater treatment plant. All persons receiving a waste hauler discharge permit shall abide by all applicable provisions of this article and any other special provisions that may be established by the Superintendent as necessary for the proper operation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment plant. It shall be illegal to discharge any batch liquid waste into any manhole or other part of the public sewer system, or any building sewer or other facility that discharges to the public sewer system. Any liquid waste hauler illegally discharging to the public sewer system shall be subject to immediate revocation of the discharge permit and shall further be subject to the enforcement actions prescribed in §§ 33.513 through 33.520 and the penalties provided for in § 33.999. Nothing in this article shall relieve waste haulers of the responsibility for compliance with the County Health Department, state or federal regulations.
