Such notification shall not relieve the user of any expense, loss, damage, or other liability which may be incurred as a result of damage to the POTW, natural resources, or any other damage to person or property; nor shall such notification relieve the user of any fines, penalties, or other liability which may be imposed pursuant to this chapter.
(C) A notice shall be permanently posted on the user’s bulletin board or other prominent place advising employees who to call in the event of a discharge described in division (A) of this section.
