CHAPTER 2 SEWER USE

SECTION 5-2-4 INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER MONITORING AND REPORTING

   
  (A)          Discharge Reports
  (1)   Every significant industrial user shall file a periodic Discharge report at such intervals as are designated by the Director. The Director may require any other industrial users discharging or proposing to discharge into the treatment system to file such periodic reports.
  (2)   The discharge report shall include, but, in the discretion of the Director, shall not be limited to, nature of process, volume, rates of flow, mass emission rate, production quantities, hours of operation, concentrations of controlled pollutants or other information which relates to the generation of waste. Such reports may also include the chemical constituents and quantity of liquid materials stored on site even though they are not normally discharged.
   
  (B)           Records and Monitoring.
   
  (1)   All industrial users who discharge or propose to discharge wastewaters to the wastewater treatment system shall maintain such records of production and related factors, effluent flows, and pollutant amounts or concentrations as are necessary to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of this chapter and any applicable State or Federal Pretreatment standards or requirements.
  (2)   Such records shall be made available upon request by the Director. All such records relating to compliance with pretreatment standards shall be made available to officials of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency upon demand. A summary of such data indicating the industrial user's compliance with this chapter shall be prepared quarterly and submitted to the Director.
  (3)   The owner or operator of any premises or facility discharging industrial wastes into the system shall install suitable monitoring equipment to facilitate the accurate observation, sampling, and measurement of wastes. The owner or operator of any premises or facility established after September 24, 1981 shall install at his own cost the suitable monitoring equipment. All such monitoring equipment shall be maintained in proper working order and kept safe and accessible at all times. A suitable monitor system must be approved b y City and State Department of Health and Welfare.
  (4)   The monitoring equipment shall be located and maintained on the industrial user's premises outside of the building. When such a location would be impractical or cause undue hardship on the user, the Director may allow such facility to be constructed in the public street or sidewalk area, with the approval of the public agency having jurisdiction over such street or sidewalk, and located so that it will not be obstructed by public utilities, landscaping or parked vehicles.
  (5)   When more than one user can discharge into a common sewer, the Director may require installation of separate monitoring equipment for each user. When there is a significant difference in wastewater constituents and characteristics produced by different operations of a single user, the Director may require that separate monitoring facilities be installed for each separate discharge.
  (6)   Whether constructed on public or private property, the monitoring facilities shall be constructed in accordance with the Director's requirements and all applicable construction standards and specifications.
   
  (7)   The City shall inspect the facilities of any user to ascertain whether the purpose of this chapter is being met and all requirements are being complied with. Persons or occupants or premises where wastewater is created or discharged shall allow the City or their representative ready access at all reasonable times to all parts of the premises for the purposes of inspection, sampling, records examination or in the performance of any of their duties. Regulatory agencies such as the City, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, and EPA shall have the right to set up on the user's property such devices as are necessary to conduct sampling inspection, compliance monitoring and/or metering operations. Where a user has security measures in force which would require proper identification and clearance before entry into their premises, the User shall make necessary arrangements with their security guards so that upon presentation of suitable identification, personnel from the regulatory agency will be permitted to enter, without delay, for the purposes of performing their specific responsibilities.
   
  (C)          Inspection, Sampling, and Analysis
  (1)   Compliance Determination. Compliance determinations with respect to section 5-2-2 prohibitions and limitations may be made on the basis of either instantaneous grab samples or composite samples of wastewater. Composite samples may be taken over a twenty-four hour period, or over a longer or shorter time span, as determined necessary by the director to meet the needs of specific circumstances.
  (2)   Analysis of Industrial Wastewaters. Laboratory analysis of industrial wastewater samples shall be performed in accordance with the current edition of "Standard Methods", "Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste" published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or the "Annual Book of Standards, part 23, Water, Atmospheric Analysis" published by the American Society for Testing and Materials. Analysis of the pollutants not covered by these publications shall be performed in accordance with procedures established by the State Department of Environmental Health.
