(Amended by Ordinance No. 185397, effective July 6, 2012.)
A. If, as determined by the Director, treatment facilities, operation changes or process modifications at an industrial user’s facility are needed to comply with any requirements under this Chapter or are necessary to meet any applicable state or federal requirements, the Director may require that such facilities be constructed or that modifications be made to the pretreatment facilities within the shortest reasonable time. Compliance deadlines will be based on construction time, impact of the untreated industrial wastewater on the City sewer system, impact of the industrial wastewater on the marketability of the City treatment plant sludge or sludge products, and any other appropriate factor.
B. Any requirement of this Chapter may be incorporated as a part of an industrial wastewater discharge permit issued under Section 17.34.070 or any other enforcement document and made a condition of issuance of such permit or discharge authorization for the industrial wastewater from such facility.
C. Plans, specifications and other information relating to the construction or installation of required pretreatment facilities shall be submitted to the Director. No construction or installation shall commence until written approval of plans and specifications by the Director is obtained. No person, by virtue of such approval, shall be relieved of compliance with other local, State or federal laws relating to construction and permits. Every facility must be constructed in accordance with the approved plans and specifications and installed and maintained at the expense of the discharger.
D. Any person constructing a pretreatment facility shall also install and maintain at their own expense a sampling manhole or other suitable monitoring access for investigating the discharge from the pretreatment facility to the public sewer. The sampling manhole or monitoring access shall be placed in a location designated by the Director and in accordance with specifications approved by the Director.
