(1) Reject the wastes.
(2) Require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers.
(3) Require control over the quantities, concentration, or rates of discharge.
(4) Require payment to cover the added cost of receiving, handling, and treating the wastes not covered by current charges of fees for wastewater service.
