§ 12.16.640. Wastewater discharge permit modification  


Latest version.
  • The industrial user shall be informed of any proposed changes in its permit at least 30 days prior to the effective date of change. The notification of a wastewater discharge permit modification does not stay any wastewater discharge permit condition. The city may modify a wastewater discharge permit for good cause, including, but not limited to, the following reasons:

    (a) To incorporate any new or revised federal, state, or local pretreatment standards or requirements;

    (b) To address significant alterations or additions to the industrial user's operation, processes, or wastewater volume or character since the time of the wastewater discharge permit issuance;

    (c) A change in the POTW that requires either a temporary or permanent reduction or elimination of the authorized discharge;

    (d) Information indicating that the permitted discharge poses a threat to the POTW, city personnel, or the receiving waters;

    (e) Violation of any terms or conditions of the industrial discharge permit;

    (f) Misrepresentations or failure to fully disclose all relevant facts in the wastewater discharge permit application or in any required reporting;

    (g) To reflect a transfer of the facility ownership and/or operation to a new owner/operator;

    (h) To correct typographical or other errors in the wastewater discharge permit; or

    (i) Upon request of the permittee, provided such request does not result in a violation of any applicable pretreatment standards or requirements, or this article. The filing of a request by the permittee for a permit modification does not stay any permit condition.
