§ 52.04  WASTEWATER MONITORING AND INSPECTION.
   (A)   (1)   The Director may require users who discharge or propose to discharge wastewaters to the wastewater treatment system to maintain such records of production and related factors, effluent flows, and pollutant amounts and concentrations of such pollutants that are necessary to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of this chapter and any applicable state or federal pretreatment standards or requirements.
      (2)   Such records shall be retained and preserved by the discharger for no less than three years, including any records, books, documents, memorandum, reports, correspondence or any other items relating to monitoring, and sampling and chemical analysis made by or in behalf of the discharger.
   (B)   Such records shall be made available to the village upon request by the Director. All such records relating to compliance with pretreatment standards shall be made available to officials of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) upon demand.
   (C)   (1)   If so ordered by the Director, the owner or operator of any premises or facility discharging wastes into the system shall install at their own cost and expense suitable monitoring equipment to facilitate the accurate observation, sampling, and measurement of wastes. Such equipment shall be maintained in proper working order and kept safe and accessible at all times.
      (2)   The monitoring equipment shall be located and maintained on the user’s premises outside of the building. When such a location would be impractical or cause undue hardship on the user, the Director may allow such a facility to be constructed in the public right-of-way, with the approval of the public agency having jurisdiction of such right-of-way, and located so that traffic sight distances will not be obstructed by public utilities, landscaping, or parked vehicles.
   (D)   When more than one user can discharge into a common sewer, the Director may require installation of separate monitoring equipment for each user. When there is a significant difference in wastewater constituents and characteristics produced by different operations of a single user, the Director may require that separate monitoring facilities be installed for each discharge.
   (E)   Whether constructed on public or private property, the monitoring facilities shall be constructed in accordance with the Director’s requirements and all applicable construction standards and specifications of the village and with the approval of the Director.
   (F)   Compliance determinations with respect to the prohibitions and limitations stated in § 52.02 may be made on the basis of either instantaneous grab samples or composite samples of wastewater at the point of connection to the village sewer system. Composite samples may be taken over a time span not to exceed a 24-hour period, as determined by the Director to be necessary in order to meet the needs of specific circumstances.
   (G)   Laboratory analysis of wastewater samples shall be performed in accordance with the current edition of Standard Methods, Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste, published by the United States EPA, or the Annual Book of Standards, Part 23, Water, Atmospheric Analysis, published by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Analysis of those pollutants not covered by these publications shall be performed in accordance with procedures established by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, all measurement, tests, and analysis of the characteristics of wastewater shall also be made in conformance with the October 16, 1975 Federal Register (40 C.F.R. part 136) entitled Guidelines for Establishing Test Procedures for the Analysis of Pollutants.
   (H)   Sampling of industrial wastewater for the purpose of compliance determination, with respect to prohibitions and limitations stated in § 52.02, will be done at such intervals as designated by the Director.
   (I)   Duly authorized employees of the village bearing proper credentials and identifications shall be permitted to enter all properties for the purposes of inspection, observation, measurement, sampling, and testing pertinent to discharge to the community system in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.
   (J)   Duly authorized village employees are authorized to obtain information concerning processes which have a direct bearing on the kind and source of discharge to the wastewater collection system. In the case of information considered by the user to be confidential, such information shall be provided to the Director of Ohio EPA for a determination of confidentiality in accordance with O.A.C. § 3745-3-07, which determination shall be final.
   (K)   While performing necessary work for private properties, referred to in divisions (I) and (J) of this section, the Director or duly authorized employees of the village shall observe all safety rules applicable to the premises.
