Section 22-216.3 Discharge permits.

    The director is authorized to establish local pretreatment standards and conditions for all wastewater discharged into city sewer systems. In order to enforce local, state and federal pretreatment standards, the director is authorized to require discharge permits of any person prior to that person discharging wastewater into any city sewer.

    (1)    As a condition of issuing a discharge permit, the director may require any permit applicant to sample the discharge, analyze the sample and record and report the results at frequencies and with methods determined by the director.

    (2)    As a condition of issuing a discharge permit, the director or his designees shall have the right to enter the premises of the facility generating the wastewater to inspect the facility, sample the wastewater and inspect and copy any records required to be kept relating to the wastewater or to enter any other premises where records are kept relating to the wastewater to inspect those records.

    (3)    The director is authorized after investigation to grant or deny the permit, or after the permit is issued to revoke the permit, upon discovery of a violation of the permit restrictions or to reconsider the permit if changes in local, state or federal pretreatment standards so require.

     (4)    Permits shall not be issued for a period longer than five (5) years.

     (5)  The permittee must submit an application for a new permit at least 90 days before the expiration date of the permit if the permittee wishes to continue an activity regulated by the permit after the expiration date of the permit.

    (6)  An expired permit will continue to be effective and enforceable until the permit is reissued if:

    (a)    The permittee has submitted a complete permit application at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration date of the user's existing permit.

        (b)    The failure to reissue the permit, prior to expiration of the previous permit, is not due to any act or failure to act on the part of the permittee.
