Sec. 19-5-10. Monitoring facilities and location.

(a) Any user required to have a waste discharge permit shall provide and operate at the user's own expense, monitoring facilities to allow inspection, sampling and flow measurement of discharge in the building sewer and/or internal drainage systems prior to discharge to the WPCF. The monitoring facility shall be situated on the user's premises, but the director may, when such a location would be impractical or cause undue hardship to the user, allow the facility to be constructed in the public meet or sidewalk area. The monitoring facility shall be located so that it will not be obstructed by landscaping or parked vehicles. There shall be ample room in or near such sampling manhole or facility to allow accurate sampling and preparation of samples for analysis. The precise location shall be specified in the user's wastewater discharge permit.
(b) The facility, sampling and measuring equipment shall be maintained at all times in a safe and proper operating condition at the expense of the user. The facility shall be readily accessible to city personnel at all times. Whether constructed on public or private property, the sampling and monitoring facilities shall be provided in ordinance with the city's requirements and all applicable local construction standards specifications. Construction shall be completed within ninety days following written notification by the city. (Ord. No. 1271, § 1 (part).)
