Sec. 19-5-7. Episodic reports.

(a) In the case of any discharge of a nonroutine or episodic nature, including, but not limited to, accidental discharges, spills, a noncustomary batch discharge, or a slug load, all users (whether or not such users are industrial users and whether or not such users are required to possess a waste discharge permit) shall immediately telephone and notify the Director of the incident. This notification shall include the location of the Discharge, type of waste, concentration and volume, if known, and corrective actions taken by the user.
(b) Within five days following such a spill, slug load, accidental discharge or other discharge of a nonroutine or episodic nature, the user shall submit a detailed written report to the public works director describing the cause(s) of the discharge and the measures to be taken by the user to prevent similar future occurrences. Such notification shall not relieve the user of any expense, loss, damage, or other liability which may he incurred as a result of damage to the WPCF, natural resources, or any other damage to person or property; nor shall such notification relieve the user of any fines, penalties, or other liability which may be imposed pursuant to this chapter.
