§ 52.001 PURPOSE.
   (A)   This chapter sets forth standards and requirements for users of the Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) for the City of Tontitown, Arkansas, and enables the Control Authority to comply with all applicable federal and state laws, including the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.) and the General Pretreatment Regulations (40 C.F.R.

      (2)   To prevent the introduction of pullulates into the POTW which will pass through the POTW, inadequately treated, into receiving waters or otherwise be incompatible with the POTW;
      (3)   To protect both POTW personnel who may be affected by wastewater and biosolids (sludge) in the course of their employment and the general public;
      (4)   To improve opportunities for reuse and recycling of wastewater and biosolids (sludge) from the POTW;
      (5)   To enable the city to comply with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit conditions, biosolids (sludge) use and disposal requirements, and any other federal or state laws to which the POTW is subject;
      (6)   To provide for penalties for violations of the regulations established herein; and
      (7)   To promote the implementation of pollution prevention practices by users of the POTW.
   (B)   This chapter authorizes the issuance of wastewater discharge permits; provides for monitoring, compliance, and enforcement activities, establishes administrative review procedures; and requires user reporting.
