(A) If any waters or wastes are discharged, or are proposed to be discharged, to the public sewer, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in § 51.081, and which in the judgement or the Authority Manager may have a deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment or receiving waters, or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Authority may:
(1) Reject the wastes;
(2) Require pretreatment to acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers. Requirements for pretreatment are to be developed, pursuant to Section 307 of the Clean Water Act, being 33 U.S.C. § 1317, by the Environmental Protection Agency. When pretreatment is necessary, construction to achieve pretreatment requirements is to be initiated within three years after the date of promulgation of the pretreatment standards;
(3) Require pretreatment to an acceptable level (other than normal strength sewage) for discharge to the public sewers; and/or
(4) Require new industrial customers or industries with significant changes in strength or flow to submit prior information to the Authority concerning the proposed flows.
(B) If the authority permits the pretreatment or equalization of waste flows, the design and installation of the plants and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the Authority Manager and subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances and laws.
