13.12.500 – Wastewater discharge permit requirement

  1. No Significant Industrial User shall discharge wastewater into the POTW without first obtaining a wastewater discharge permit from the Director of Public Works, except that a Significant Industrial User that has filed a timely application pursuant to Section 13.12.540 of this chapter may continue to discharge for the time period specified therein, provided the discharge in all other respects does not violate any provision of this chapter.
  2. The Director of Public Works may require other Users as well as Significant Industrial Users to obtain wastewater discharge permits as necessary to carry out the purposes of this chapter.
  3. Any violation of the terms and conditions of a wastewater discharge permit shall be deemed a violation of this chapter and subjects the wastewater discharge permittee to the sanctions set forth in this Chapter.  Obtaining a wastewater discharge permit does not relieve a permittee of its obligation to comply with all Federal and State pretreatment standards or requirements and local limits or with any other requirements of Federal, State, and local law.
