(a)   Notification of Accidental Discharges. Users shall notify the Wastewater Treatment System Superintendent immediately upon accidentally discharging wastes in violation of this chapter to enable countermeasures to be taken to minimize damage to the wastewater treatment system, treatment processes and the receiving waters.
   This notification shall be followed, within five days of the date of occurrence, by a detailed written statement describing the causes of the accidental discharge and the measures being taken to prevent future occurrence.
   Such notification will not relieve users of liability for any expense, loss or damage to the sewer system, treatment plant or treatment process, or for any fines imposed on the Agency on account thereof.
   (b)   Employees Informed of Accidental Discharges Requirements. In order that employees of users be informed of Agency requirements, users shall make available to their employees copies of this chapter together with such other wastewater information and notices which may be furnished by the Agency from time to time directed toward more effective water pollution control. A notice shall be furnished and permanently posted on the user’s bulletin board advising employees whom to call in case of an accidental discharge in violation of this chapter.
   (c)   Accidental Discharge Preventative Measures. Any direct or indirect connection or entry point for persistent or deleterious wastes to the user’s plumbing or drainage system shall be eliminated. Where such action is impractical or unreasonable the user shall appropriately label such entry points to warn against discharge of such wastes in violation of this chapter.
   (d)   Damaging Treatment Work Prohibited. No unauthorized person shall maliciously, willfully or negligently break, damage, destroy, uncover, cover, obstruct access to, deface or tamper with any structure, appurtenance or equipment which is a part of the Agency’s treatment works.
