(A) Each user must provide protection from accidental discharge of prohibited or regulated materials or substances. Where necessary, procedures and facilities to prevent the accidental discharge of prohibited materials must be provided and maintained at the user's expense. Detailed plans showing facilities and operating procedures to provide the protection must be submitted to the town for review and be approved before construction of the facility. Review and approval of plans and operating procedures by the town will not relieve the user from the responsibility to modify its facility as necessary to meet applicable requirements.
(B) Users must notify the town immediately when a slug load or accidental discharge occurs. The notification must include the location of the discharge, date and time of occurrence, type of waste, concentration and volume, and corrective actions. Any industrial user who discharges a slug load of prohibited materials will be charged a Slug Load/Accidental Discharge Fee per the Town of Waterloo's Fee Schedule and be liable for any expense, including any cleaning, loss or damage to the sewerage system, in addition to the amount of any fines imposed under state or federal law.
(C) Signs must be permanently posted in conspicuous places on the user's premises, advising employees whom to call in the event of an accidental discharge. Employers must instruct all employees who may cause or discover such a discharge as to emergency notification procedures.
(D) The town may inspect the property for accidental discharge protection measures or incidences at any time.
