CHAPTER 19. WASTEWATER DISCHARGE AND TREATMENT.
Article V. Reporting and Sampling Requirements.
Sec. 19-5-1. Categorical industrial users baseline monitoring reports.
(a) Within either one hundred eighty days after the effective date of a
pretreatment standard, or the final administrative decision on category
determination under 40 CFR 403.6(a)(4), whichever is later, existing industrial
users subject to such pretreatment standards currently discharging to or
scheduled to discharge to the WPCF shall submit to the director a baseline
monitoring report which contains the information listed in subsection (b) of
At least ninety days prior to commencement of discharge, new
sources, and sources that become CIUs subsequent to the promulgation of an
applicable pretreatment standard, shall submit a baseline monitoring report
which contains the information listed in subsection (b) of this section. A new
source shall report the method of pretreatment it intends to use to meet the
applicable pretreatment standards, an estimate of its anticipated flow, and an
estimate of the quantity of pollutants to be discharged.
(b) Users described
above in subsection (a) of this section shall submit the information set forth
below (as required under 40 CFR 403.12(b)):
(1) Identifying Information. The
name and address of the facility, including the name of the operator and
(2) Environmental Permits. A list of any environmental control
permits held by or for the facility.
(3) Description of Operations. A brief
description of the nature, average rate of production, and Standard Industrial
Classifications of the operation(s) carried out by such user. This description
should include a schematic process diagram which indicates points of discharge
to the WPCF from the regulated processes.
(4) Flow Measurement. Information
showing the measured average daily and maximum daily flow, in gallons per day,
to the WPCF from regulated process streams and other streams, as necessary, to
allow use of the combined wastestream formula set out in 40 CFR
(5) Measurement of Pollutants.
(a) The pretreatment standards
applicable to each regulated process.
(b) The results of sampling and
analysis which identify the nature and concentration, and/or mass, where
required by the pretreatment standard or by the director, of regulated
pollutants in the discharge from each regulated process. Instantaneous, daily
maximum, and long-term average concentrations, or mass, where required, shall be
reported. The sample shall be representative of daily operations and shall be
analyzed in accordance with procedures set out in this chapter and 40 CFR
(6) Certification. A statement, reviewed and signed by the
user's authorized representative and certified by a qualified professional,
indicating whether pretreatment standards are being met on a constant basis,
and, if not, whether additional O&M and/or additional pretreatment is
required to meet the pretreatment standards.
(7) Compliance Schedule. If
additional pretreatment and/or O&M will be required to meet the pretreatment
standards, a description of such additional pretreatment and/or O&M and the
shortest schedule by which the user will provide such additional pretreatment
and/or O&M. The completion date in this schedule shall not be later than the
compliance date established for the applicable pretreatment standard. The
following conditions shall apply to this schedule:
(A) The schedule shall
contain increments of progress in the form of dates for the commencement and
completion of major events leading to the construction and operation of
additional pretreatment required for the user to meet the applicable
pretreatment standards (e.g., hiring of an engineer, completing preliminary
plans, completing final plans, executing contract for major components,
commencing construction, completing construction, etc.);
(B) No increment
referred to in subsection (b)(7)(a) of this section shall exceed nine
(C) Not later than fourteen days following each date in the schedule
and the final date for compliance, the user shall submit a progress report to
the director including, as a minimum, whether or not it complied with the
increment of progress to be met on such date and, if not, the date on which it
expects to comply with the increment of progress, the reason for delay, and the
steps being taken by the user to return the construction to the schedule
established. In no event shall more than nine months elapse between such
progress reports to the director. (Ord. No. 1271, § 1 (part).)
