Any waters or wastes having a pH lower than 5.0 or higher than 9.0 or having any other corrosive property capable of causing damage or hazard to structures, equipment and personnel of the wastewater works.
Solid or viscous substances in quantities or of such size capable of causing obstruction to the flow in sewers or other interference with the proper operation of the wastewater facilities, such as, but not limited to, ashes, bones, cinders, sand, mud, straw, shavings, metal, glass, rags, feathers, tar, plastics, wood, unground garbage, whole blood, paunch manure, hair and fleshings, entrails and paper dishes, cups, milk containers, etc.. either whole or ground by garbage grinders.
The following-described substances, materials, waters or wastes shall be limited, in discharges to municipal systems, to concentrations or quantities which will not harm either the sewers, wastewater treatment process or equipment, will not have an adverse effect on the receiving stream or will not otherwise endanger lives, limbs or public property or constitute a nuisance. The Superintendent may set limitations lower than the limitations established in the regulations below if, in his opinion, such more severe limitations are necessary to meet the above objectives. In forming his opinion as to the acceptability, the Superintendent will give consideration to such factors as the quantity of subject waste in relation to flows and velocities in the sewers, materials of construction of the sewers, the wastewater treatment process employed, capacity of the wastewater treatment plant, degree of treatability of the waste in the wastewater treatment plant and other pertinent factors. The limitations or restrictions on materials or characteristics of waste or wastewaters discharged to the sanitary sewer, which shall not be violated without approval of the Superintendent, are as follows:
Wastewater having a temperature higher than 150° F. [65° C.] or in such quantities that the temperature at the treatment works influent exceeds 104° F. [40° C.].
Wastewater containing more than 100 milligrams per liter of petroleum oil, nonbiodegradable cutting oils or products of mineral oil origin.
Wastewater from industrial plants containing floatable oils, fat or grease.
Any garbage that has not been properly shredded. (See § 126-21, "properly shredded garbage.") Garbage grinders may be connected to sanitary sewers from homes, hotels, institutions, restaurants, hospitals, catering establishments or similar places, where garbage originates from the preparation of food in kitchens for the purpose of consumption on the premises or when served by caterers.
Any waters or wastes containing iron, chromium, copper, zinc and similar objectionable or toxic substances, to such degree that any such material received in the composite wastewater at the wastewater treatment works exceeds the limits established by the Superintendent for such materials, unless a categorical standard has been promulgated for a specific industry by the USEPA.
Any waters or wastes containing odor-producing substances exceeding limits which may be established by the Superintendent.
Any radioactive wastes or isotopes of such half-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by applicable local, state or federal regulations.
Quantities of flow or concentrations, or both, which constitute a slug as defined herein.
Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amenable to treatment or reduction by the wastewater treatment processes employed or are amenable to treatment only to such a degree that the wastewater treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of agencies having jurisdiction over discharge to the receiving waters.
Any water or wastes which, by interaction with other water or wastes in the public sewer system, release obnoxious gases, form suspended solids which interfere with the collection system or create a condition deleterious to structures and treatment processes.
Any substance which may cause the POTW's effluent or any other product of the POTW, such as residues, sludge or scums, to be unsuitable for reclamation and reuse or to interfere with the reclamation process where the POTW is pursuing a reuse and reclamation program. In no case shall a substance discharged to the POTW cause the POTW to be in noncompliance with sludge use or disposal criteria, guidelines or regulations developed under Section 405 of the Act, any criteria, guidelines or regulations affecting sludge use or disposal development pursuant to the Solid Waste Disposal Act, the Clean Air Act, the Toxic Substance Control Act or state criteria applicable to the sludge management method being used.
If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the public sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in § 126-25D and which, in the judgment of the Superintendent, may have a deleterious effect upon the wastewater facilities, processes, equipment or receiving waters or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Superintendent may:
Reject the wastes;
Require pretreatment or an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers;
Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge; and/or
Require payment to cover the added cost of handling and treating the wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges.
