A. A City discharge authorization or City permit is required for un-permitted discharges that would otherwise cause interference with or harm the City storm sewer and drainage system, contribute to a violation of the City's NPDES stormwater discharge permit, degrade the local receiving surface water or groundwater, or have a negative effect on human health or the environment.
B. A City discharge authorization request must be submitted and approved before non-routine or one-time discharges of materials except for those discharges that are allowed under Section 17.39.030.
C. A City permit request must be submitted and BES must provide approval or denial of the permit before continuous or routine discharge occurs of materials other than stormwater that are not allowed under Section 17.39.030. A discharger must apply for a City permit when required by BES either at the time of development application or at the time of discovery of a discharge that requires a permit or authorization per Subsection 17.39.060 A.
D. The discharger may be required to allow site inspections by BES to verify site conditions or submit additional information, reports and plans as part of the DA or City permit request, such as:
1. A Stormwater Pollution Control Plan (SWPCP), which describes site actions taken to prevent contamination of stormwater by materials stored, used or manufactured onsite;
2. An Accidental Spill Prevention Plan (ASPP), which describes actions taken to prevent accidental or incidental spills of pollutants from entering the City storm sewer and drainage system; or
3. Monitoring data to characterize the types and loads of pollutants in the discharges.
E. The Director shall provide the discharger written notice of approval or denial of the request to discharge and information on how to request further administrative review of the decision.
F. Any new or potential discharger identified through the City’s development review process shall undergo a source control review. Such review shall identify any site controls, City permit, or DA submittals needed to approve and accept any new discharge.
