CHAPTER 19. WASTEWATER DISCHARGE AND TREATMENT.
Article VI. Enforcement and Penalties.
Sec. 19-6-3. Cease and desist orders/compliance directives.
(a) When the director finds that a user has violated, is violating,
threatens to violate, or continues to violate, any provision of this chapter, a
wastewater discharge permit, or any pretreatment standard or pretreatment
requirement, or that the user's past violations are likely to recur, the
director may issue a cease and desist order (also known as a compliance
directive) to the user directing the user to cease and desist all such
violations and further directing the user to:
(1) Immediately comply with
all such requirements; and
(2) Take such appropriate remedial or preventive
action as may be needed to properly address a continuing or threatened
violation, including halting operations and/or terminating the discharge upon
such schedule as the director may order.
(b) Issuance of a cease and desist
order shall not be a bar against, or a prerequisite for, taking any other action
against the user. (Ord. No. 1271, § 1 (part).)
