§ 53.054  DISCRETIONARY AUTHORITY OF DIRECTOR.
   (A)   If any waters or wastes are discharged, or are proposed to be discharged to the public sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in § 53.053, and in the judgment of the Director, may have a deleterious effect upon the wastewater facilities, processes, equipment, or receiving waters, or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Director may:
      (1)   Reject the wastes;
      (2)   Require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers;
      (3)   Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge; and/or
      (4)   Require payment to cover the added cost of handling and treating the wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges under the provisions of § 53.080.
   (B)   When considering the above alternatives, the Director shall give consideration to the economic impact of each alternative on the discharger. If the Director 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 Director.
