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).)
