A. Within either one hundred eighty (180) days after the effective date of a categorical pretreatment standard, or the final administrative decision on a category determination under 40 CFR section 403.6(a)(4), whichever is later, existing categorical industrial users currently discharging to, or scheduled to discharge to, the POTW shall submit to the pretreatment coordinator a report which contains the information listed in subsection B of this section. At least ninety (90) days prior to commencement of their discharge, new sources, and sources that become categorical industrial users subsequent to the promulgation of an applicable categorical standard, shall submit to the pretreatment coordinator a report which contains the information listed in subsection B of this section. A new source shall report the method of pretreatment it intends to use to meet applicable categorical standards. A new source also shall give estimates of its anticipated flow and quantity of pollutants to be discharged.
B. Users described above shall submit the following information:
1. Permit Application Information: All information required in section 8-4-4-5 of this chapter.
2. Measurement Of Pollutants:
a. The user shall provide the information required in subsections 8-4-4-5A7a through e of this chapter;
b. The user shall take a minimum of one representative sample to compile the data necessary to comply with the requirements of this subsection;
c. Samples should be taken immediately downstream from pretreatment facilities if such exist or immediately downstream from the regulated process if no pretreatment facility exists. If other wastewaters are mixed with the regulated wastewater prior to pretreatment, the user should measure the flows and concentrations necessary to allow use of the combined waste stream formula in 40 CFR section 403.6(e), to evaluate compliance with the pretreatment standards. Where an alternate concentration or mass limit has been calculated in accordance with 40 CFR section 403.6(e), this adjusted limit shall be submitted to the control authority, along with supporting data;
e. The pretreatment coordinator may allow the submission of a baseline report which utilizes only historical data if the data provides information sufficient to determine the need for industrial pretreatment measures; and
f. The baseline report shall indicate the time, date and place of sampling, and methods of analysis, and shall certify that such sampling and analysis is representative of normal work cycles and expected pollutant discharges to the POTW.
3. Compliance Certification: A statement, reviewed by the user’s authorized representative as defined in section 8-4-1-4 of this chapter, and certified by a qualified professional, indicating whether pretreatment standards are being met on a consistent basis, and, if not, whether additional operations and maintenance (O and M), and/or additional pretreatment, is required to meet the pretreatment standards and requirements.
4. Compliance Schedule: After it is determined that additional pretreatment and/or O and M will be required, user must submit a compliance schedule within thirty (30) days. The compliance schedule shall specify the shortest time line for the user to provide such additional pretreatment and/or O and M. The completion date in this schedule shall not be later than the compliance date established for the applicable pretreatment standard. A compliance schedule pursuant to this section must meet the requirements set out in section 8-4-6-2 of this chapter.
5. Signature And Report Certification: All baseline monitoring reports must be certified in accordance with subsection 8-4-6-14A of this chapter, and signed by an authorized representative as defined in section 8-4-1-4 of this chapter. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
The following conditions shall apply to the compliance schedule required by subsection 8-4-6-1B4 of this chapter:
A. The schedule shall contain progress increments in the form of dates for the commencement and completion of major events leading to the construction and operation of additional pretreatment required for the user to meet the applicable pretreatment standards (such events include, but are not limited to, hiring an engineer, completing preliminary and final plans, executing contracts for major components, commencing and completing construction, and beginning and conducting routine operation);
B. The user shall submit a progress report to the pretreatment coordinator no later than fourteen (14) days following each date in the schedule and the final date of compliance including, as a minimum, whether or not it complied with the increment of progress, the reason for any delay, and, if appropriate, the steps being taken by the user to return to the established schedule; and
C. In no event shall more than nine (9) months elapse between such progress reports to the pretreatment coordinator. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
Within ninety (90) days following the date for final compliance with applicable categorical pretreatment standards, or in the case of a new source, following commencement of the introduction of wastewater into the POTW, any user subject to such pretreatment standards and requirements shall submit to the pretreatment coordinator a report containing the information described in subsections 8-4-4-5A6 and A7 and 8-4-6-1B2 of this chapter. For users subject to equivalent mass or concentration limits established in accordance with the procedures in 40 CFR section 403.6(c), this report shall contain a reasonable measure of the user’s long term production rate. For all other users subject to categorical pretreatment standards, expressed in terms of allowable pollutant discharge per unit of production (or other measure of operation), this report shall include the user’s actual production during the appropriate sampling period. All compliance reports must be signed and certified in accordance with section 8-4-6-14 of this chapter. Sampling and analysis shall be performed in accordance with sections 8-4-6-10 and 8-4-6-11 of this chapter. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. All significant industrial users, at a frequency determined by the pretreatment coordinator, must submit reports, no less than twice per year (June and December), indicating the nature, concentration of pollutants in the discharge which are limited by pretreatment standards, and the measured or estimated average and maximum daily flows for the reporting period. In cases where the pretreatment standard requires compliance with a best management practice (BMP), or pollution prevention alternative, the user must submit documentation required by the pretreatment coordinator or the pretreatment standard necessary to determine the compliance status of the user.
B. All periodic compliance reports must be signed and certified in accordance with subsection 8-4-6-14A of this chapter.
C. All wastewater samples must be representative of the user’s discharge. Wastewater monitoring and flow measurement facilities shall be properly operated, kept clean, and maintained in good working order at all times. The failure of a user to keep its monitoring facility in good working order shall not be grounds for the user to claim that sample results are unrepresentative of its discharge.
D. If a user subject to the reporting requirement in this section monitors any regulated pollutant at the appropriate sampling location more frequently than required by the pretreatment coordinator, using the procedures prescribed in section 8-4-6-11 of this chapter, the results of this monitoring shall be included in the report. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. Each user must notify the pretreatment coordinator of any significant changes to the user’s operations or system which might alter the nature, quality, or volume of its wastewater at least thirty (30) days before the change, including changes that may affect slug discharges to the POTW. Significant changes shall be considered to be changes beyond the typical operating range of the user, or changes that would have significant impact on POTW operations.
1. The pretreatment coordinator may require the user to submit such information as may be deemed necessary to evaluate the changed condition, including the submission of a wastewater discharge permit application under section 8-4-4-5 of this chapter.
2. The manager may issue an individual wastewater discharge permit under section 8-4-5-7 of this chapter, or modify an existing wastewater discharge permit under section 8-4-5-4 of this chapter, in response to changed conditions or anticipated changed conditions.
B. The manager may approve, conditionally approve, or deny the change based on the effect the change may have on the POTW and/or the pretreatment program. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. In the case of any discharge, including, but not limited to, accidental discharges, discharges of a nonroutine, episodic nature, a noncustomary batch discharge, a slug discharge, or slug load, that might cause potential problems for the POTW, the user shall immediately notify either in person or via a phone conversation with the pretreatment coordinator of the incident. A phone message does not satisfy this notification requirement. This notification shall include the location of the discharge, type of waste, concentration and volume, if known, and corrective actions taken by the user.
B. Within five (5) days following such discharge, the user shall, unless waived by the manager, submit a detailed written report describing the cause(s) of the discharge, and the measures to be taken by the user to prevent similar future occurrences. Such notification shall not relieve the user of any expense, loss, damage, or other liability which might be incurred as a result of damage to the POTW, natural resources, or any other damage to person or property. Such notification shall not relieve the user of any fines, penalties, or other liability which may be imposed pursuant to this chapter.
C. A notice shall be permanently posted on the user’s bulletin board or other prominent place advising employees of the notification procedures in the event of a discharge described in subsection A of this section. Employers shall ensure that all employees, who could cause such a discharge to occur, are advised of the emergency notification procedure.
D. Significant industrial users are required to notify the pretreatment coordinator immediately of any changes at its facility affecting the potential for a slug discharge. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
All users not required to obtain an individual wastewater discharge permit shall provide appropriate reports as required by the pretreatment coordinator. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
If sampling performed by a user indicates a violation, the user shall notify the pretreatment coordinator within twenty-four (24) hours of becoming aware of the violation. The user shall also repeat the sampling and analysis, and submit the results of the repeat analysis to the pretreatment coordinator within thirty (30) days after becoming aware of the violation. Resampling by the industrial user is not required if: (A) SGRWRF performs scheduled sampling at the facility at least once a month; (B) if SGRWRF performs sampling at the facility, between the time when the initial sampling was conducted, and the time when the user receives the results of the initial sampling; or (C) if SGRWRF has performed the sampling and analysis in lieu of the industrial user, then SGRWRF will perform the repeat sampling and analysis, unless it notifies the user of the violation and requires the user to perform the repeat sampling and analysis. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. Any user who commences the discharge of hazardous waste shall notify the POTW, the EPA regional waste management division director, and state hazardous waste authorities, in writing, of any discharge into the POTW of a substance which, if otherwise disposed of, would be a hazardous waste under 40 CFR part 261. Such notification must include the name of the hazardous waste as set forth in 40 CFR part 261, the EPA hazardous waste number, and the type of discharge (continuous, batch, or other). If the user discharges more than one hundred (100) kilograms of such waste per calendar month to the POTW, the notification also shall contain the following information: (1) an identification of the hazardous constituents contained in the wastes; (2) an estimation of the mass and concentration of such constituents in the waste stream discharged during that calendar month; and (3) an estimation of the mass of constituents in the waste stream expected to be discharged during the following twelve (12) months. All notifications must take place no later than one hundred eighty (180) days after the discharge commences. Any notification under this paragraph need be submitted only once for each hazardous waste discharged. However, notifications of changed conditions must be submitted under section 8-4-6-5 of this chapter. The notification requirement in this section does not apply to pollutants already reported by users subject to categorical pretreatment standards under the self-monitoring requirements of sections 8-4-6-1, 8-4-6-3, and 8-4-6-4 of this chapter.
B. Dischargers are exempt from the requirements of subsection A of this section, during a calendar month in which they discharge no more than fifteen (15) kilograms of hazardous wastes, unless the wastes are acute hazardous wastes as specified in 40 CFR sections 261.30(d) and 261.33(e). Discharge of more than fifteen (15) kilograms of nonacute hazardous wastes in a calendar month, or of any quantity of acute hazardous wastes as specified in 40 CFR sections 261.30(d) and 261.33(e), requires a onetime notification. Subsequent months during which the user discharges more than such quantities of any hazardous waste do not require additional notification.
C. In the case of any new regulations under section 3001 of RCRA, identifying additional characteristics of hazardous waste or listing any additional substance as a hazardous waste, the user shall notify the manager, the EPA regional waste management waste division director, and state hazardous waste authorities of the discharge of such substance within ninety (90) days of the effective date of such regulations.
D. In the case of any notification made under this section, the user shall certify that it has a program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of hazardous wastes generated.
E. This provision does not create a right to discharge any substance not otherwise permitted to be discharged by this chapter, a permit issued thereunder, or any applicable federal, state, or local law. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. All pollutant analyses, including sampling techniques, to be submitted as part of a wastewater discharge permit application, report, permit or other requirement by this chapter, shall be performed in accordance with the techniques prescribed in 40 CFR part 136 and amendments thereto, unless otherwise specified in an applicable categorical pretreatment standard. If 40 CFR part 136 does not contain sampling or analytical techniques for the pollutant in question, or where the EPA determines that the part 136 sampling and analytical techniques are inappropriate for the pollutant in question, sampling and analyses shall be performed by using validated analytical methods, or any other applicable sampling and analytical procedures approved by the pretreatment coordinator.
B. All laboratory samples collected for this chapter shall be analyzed by a laboratory that is either certified by the Utah Bureau of Laboratory Improvements or approved by the manager. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
Samples collected to satisfy reporting requirements must be based on data obtained through appropriate sampling and analysis performed during the period covered by the report, based on data that is representative of conditions occurring during the reporting period.
A. Except as indicated in subsections B and C of this section, the user must collect wastewater samples using twenty-four (24) hour flow proportional composite sampling techniques, unless time proportional composite sampling or grab sampling is authorized by the pretreatment coordinator. Where time proportional composite sampling or grab sampling is authorized by SGRWRF, the samples must be representative of the discharge. Using protocols (including appropriate preservation) specified in 40 CFR part 136 and appropriate EPA guidance, multiple grab samples collected during a twenty-four (24) hour period may be composited prior to the analysis as follows: (1) for cyanide, total phenols, and sulfides, the samples may be composited in the laboratory or in the field; and (2) for volatile organics and oil and grease, the samples may be composited in the laboratory. Composite samples for other parameters, unaffected by the compositing procedures as documented in approved EPA methodologies, may be authorized by SGRWRF, as appropriate. In addition, grab samples may be required to show compliance with instantaneous limits.
B. Samples for oil and grease, temperature, pH, cyanide, total phenols, sulfides, and volatile organic compounds, must be obtained using grab collection techniques.
C. For sampling required in support of baseline monitoring and ninety (90) day compliance reports required in sections 8-4-6-1 and 8-4-6-3 of this chapter, a minimum of four (4) grab samples must be used for pH, cyanide, total phenols, oil and grease, sulfide and volatile organic compounds for facilities for which historical sampling data do not exist. For facilities for which historical sampling data are available, the pretreatment coordinator may authorize a lower minimum. For the reports required by section 8-4-6-4 of this chapter, the industrial user is required to collect the number of grab samples necessary to assess and assure compliance with applicable pretreatment standards and requirements. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
Written reports are deemed submitted on the date postmarked. For reports, which are not mailed, postage prepaid, into a mail facility serviced by the United States postal service, the date the report is received shall govern. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
Users subject to the reporting requirements of this chapter shall retain, and make available for inspection and copying, all records of information obtained pursuant to any monitoring activities required by this chapter, any additional records obtained pursuant to monitoring activities undertaken by the user independent of such requirements, and documentation associated with BMPs established under subsection 8-4-2-4C of this chapter. Records shall include: a) the date, exact place, method, and time of sampling, and the name of the person(s) taking the samples; b) the dates analyses were performed; c) who performed the analyses; d) the analytical techniques or methods used; and e) the results of such analyses. These records shall remain available for a period of at least three (3) years. This period shall be automatically extended for the duration of any litigation concerning the user or SGRWRF, or where the user has been specifically notified of a longer retention period by the pretreatment coordinator. (Ord. 2016-11-005, 11-10-2016)
A. Certification Of Permit Applications, User Reports And Initial Monitoring Waiver: The following certification statement, signed by an authorized representative as defined in section 8-4-1-4 of this chapter, shall be submitted by: 1) users submitting permit applications under section 8-4-4-6 of this chapter; 2) users submitting baseline monitoring reports under subsection 8-4-6-1B5 of this chapter; 3) users submitting reports on compliance with the categorical pretreatment standard deadlines under section 8-4-6-3 of this chapter; and 4) users submitting periodic compliance reports required by subsections 8-4-6-4A through D of this chapter:
