(A) Suspension due to illicit discharges in emergency situations. The town Department of Public Works may, without prior notice, suspend access to the MS4 when such suspension is necessary to stop an actual or threatened discharge which presents or may present imminent danger to the environment, the health or welfare of persons, the MS4 or waters of the Commonwealth. If the violator fails to comply with a suspension order issued in an emergency, the authorized enforcement agency may take such steps as deemed necessary to prevent or minimize damage to the MS4 or waters of the Commonwealth, or to minimize danger to persons or the environment.
(B) Suspension or termination due to the detection of illicit discharge.
(1) Any person discharging to the MS4 in violation of this chapter may have their MS4 access suspended or terminated if such action would abate or reduce an illicit discharge.
(2) A person commits an offense if the person reinstates MS4 access to premises terminated pursuant to this section, without the prior approval of the authorized enforcement agency.
