Sec. 19-2-11. Spill and slug control plans.

(a) At least once every two years, the public works director shall evaluate whether each SIU needs a spill and slug control plan (40 CFR 403.8(f)(2)(v)). The director may require any user required to have a waste discharge permit (including those not designated as SIUs) to develop, submit for approval, and implement such a plan. Alternatively, the director may develop such a plan for any such user. The spill and slug control plan shall address, at a minimum, the items contained in 40 CFR 403.8(f)(2)(v).
(b) Each user required to have a spill and slug control plan shall provide protection from spills or accidental discharges of prohibited materials or other substances regulated by this chapter. Facilities to prevent accidental discharge of prohibited materials shall be provided and maintained at the owner or user's own cost and expense. Detailed plans showing facilities and operating procedures to provide this protection shall be submitted to the director for review, and shall be approved by the director before construction of the facility.
(c) No user required to have a spill and slug control plan shall discharge to the WPCF until said plan has been approved by the director. Review and approval of such plans and operating procedures shall not relieve such user from the responsibility to modify the user's facility as necessary to meet the requirements of this chapter. The director shall have the right to deny or condition new or increased contributions of pollutants or changes in the nature of pollutants.
(d) Each user required to have a spill and slug control plan shall permanently post a notice on a bulletin board or other prominent place within the user's place of business advising employees whom to call in the event of spill, slug discharge or an accidental discharge. Users shall insure that all employees who may cause or suffer such spills or slug discharges to occur are advised of the emergency notification procedures. (Ord. No. 1271, § 1 (part).)
