No persons shall discharge or cause to be discharged to any wastewater facilities wastewaters containing substances and/or concentration of substances prohibited in Article VI, Conditions on Use, as indicated herein.
Should an industrial discharger (Class III) request connection to the wastewater facilities, the city shall, prior to authorizing such discharge, require that sufficient information be provided in order to evaluate the waste material proposed to be discharged to ascertain compliance with Article VI of this chapter. If, in the opinion of the city, the waste is not in compliance with the requirements of Article VI, the potential discharger will be required to provide adequate pretreatment facilities for the wastes in order to bring the material proposed for discharge into the wastewater facilities into full compliance, or the industrial discharger will be denied access into the wastewater facilities.
If the discharger is found to be in violation of Article VI, the city shall require the installation of pretreatment facilities within a specified time to be determined by the city. If such facilities are not constructed and delivering a waste in compliance with the provisions of this chapter within the specified time, the city may disconnect the discharge from the wastewater facilities according to provisions set forth in Article II.
Measurements, tests and analyses of the characteristics of wastewater to which reference is made in this chapter shall be determined in accordance with the latest edition of Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, published by the American Public Health Association, or such alternative methods used by the city in compliance with state and federal law. Sampling methods, locations, times, durations and frequencies are to be determined on an individual basis, subject to the approval by the city. Notwithstanding the provisions of Article II, § 220-4, regarding responsibility for measurement and sampling of wastewater discharges, the discharger shall be liable for all costs incurred by the city in the determination of wastewater characteristics pursuant to this section. The discharger shall have the option to use, at his/her own expense, more complete sampling methods, locations, times and frequencies than specified by the city.
Measurements, tests and analyses of the characteristics of wastewater required by this chapter shall be performed by a New Jersey State certified laboratory.
If the drainage of discharge from any person/owner causes a deposit, obstruction or damage to any of the wastewater facilities located in the city, the city shall cause the deposit or obstruction to be promptly removed or cause the damage to be promptly repaired. The cost for such work, including materials, labor, supervision, permits and engineering and legal fees, shall be borne by the person/owner causing such deposit, obstruction or damage.
The city shall implement reasonable measures to ensure the confidentiality of the information provided by a Class III discharger, if so requested.
