Public wastewater collection facilities are required to be used for the deposit of human waste, garbage and/or other liquid wastes that cannot be discharged into a receiving stream or disposed of in any other manner in accordance with federal and/or state statutes and/or state administrative regulations as approved by the appropriate agencies.
No building or facility shall be connected to any sewer unless the entire property on which the building or facility is situated is located within the jurisdictional limits of the JRSB, except as provided in § 137-38 of this law.
No person shall place, deposit or discharge or cause to be placed, deposited or discharged upon public or privately owned property any wastewater within the jurisdictional limits of the JRSB unless done so within adequately sized holding facilities as approved by all applicable federal, state, county and local agencies.
No person shall deposit or discharge or cause to be deposited or discharged to any wastewater collection facilities any solid, liquid and/or gaseous waste unless through a connection approved under the terms of this law.
No person shall discharge any sewage, waste or material, industrial waste or any polluted water into a stream or into the air or onto the land except where the person has made and provided for treatment of such wastes which will render the content of such wastes' discharge in accordance with applicable state and federal laws, ordinances and regulations, county law and local laws.
In case of natural outlet discharges, at the time construction of the POTW is commenced, each industrial user shall furnish to the JRSB an approved NPDES permit setting forth the effluent limits to be achieved by the industrial user's treatment facility and a schedule for achieving compliance with such limits by the required date. The NPDES permit shall be kept on file with the JRSB and updated by such information as periodically required by the participating members, local agencies, state agencies and/or federal agencies.
Any person owning property within the jurisdictional limits of the JRSB, which property is improved with one or more residences, houses, buildings or structures for or intended for human use, occupancy, employment or any other similar purpose whatever and which property abuts on any street, alley or right-of-way in which there is located a sewer within 100 feet of the nearest property line, shall, within 90 days after such sewer is in service and at his expense, install suitable toilet and waste disposal facilities in the residences, houses, buildings or structures and connect the facilities with the sewer in accordance with the terms and provisions of this law; provided, however, that in the event that compliance with this section of the law causes economic hardship to the person, he may apply to the JRSB for an exemption. An application for exemption shall state in detail the circumstances which are claimed to cause the economic hardship. Exemptions shall only be granted to residential users and shall not be available to commercial and/or industrial users. Any connection to a sewer line under this law shall be made only if the JRSB determines that there is capacity, including BOD and TSS capacity, available in all downstream sewer lift stations, sewer lines and in the POTW.
