CHAPTER 19. WASTEWATER DISCHARGE AND TREATMENT.
Article II. Discharge Requirements.
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.
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).)
