CHAPTER 19. WASTEWATER DISCHARGE AND TREATMENT.
Article V. Reporting and Sampling Requirements.
Sec. 19-5-8. Notification of discharge of hazardous wastes.
(a) All industrial users shall notify in writing the director, the State
RWQCB, and the EPA Regional Waste Management Division Director of any discharge
which, if otherwise disposed of would be considered a hazardous waste under 40
CFR Part 261. Such notification must include the name of the hazardous waste as
set forth in 40 CFR Part 261, the EPA hazardous waste number, and the type of
discharge (continuous, batch, or other). If the industrial user discharges more
than one hundred kilograms of such waste per calendar month to the WPCF, the
notification shall also include the following information to the extent such
information is known or readily available to the industrial user: An
identification of the hazardous constituents contained in the waste, an
estimation of the mass and concentration of such constituents in the waste
stream discharged during that calendar month, and an estimation of the mass of
constituents in the waste stream expected to be discharged during the following
twelve months. Notification shall take place within one hundred eighty days of
the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter. Industrial users
who commence discharging after the effective date of the ordinance codified in
this chapter shall provide notification not later than one hundred eighty days
after the discharge of the listed or characteristic hazardous waste. Any
notification under this section need be submitted only once for each hazardous
waste discharged; however, notification of changed circumstances or changed
discharges must be submitted under Section 19-5-6.
(b) In the event new
regulations are promulgated pursuant to Section 3001 of the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (Pub. Law 94-580, 90 Stat. 2806, 42 USC
Section 6921), identifying additional characteristics of hazardous waste or
listing any additional substance as a hazardous waste, industrial users shall
notify in writing the director, the State RWQCB, and the EPA Regional Waste
Management Division director of the discharge of such substance within ninety
days of the effective date of such regulation.
(c) In the event of any
notification made under this section, the industrial user shall certify it has a
program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of hazardous wastes generated
to the degree it has determined to be economically practical. (Ord. No. 1271,
§ 1 (part).)
