Sec. 36-36. Notification of accidental discharge.
Industrial users shall notify the city immediately upon accidentally discharging wastes in violation of this chapter, to enable countermeasures to be taken by the city to minimize damage to the industrial waste sewer, the treatment facility, treatment processes, the receiving waters and the waters of the state.
The notification shall be in accordance with the spill prevention and control plan submitted to the city after issuance of the permit. This notification shall be followed, within five days of the date of occurrence, by a detailed written statement describing the causes of the accidental discharge and the measures being taken to prevent future occurrence.
Such notification will not relieve users of liability for any expense, loss or damage to the sewer system or for any fines imposed on the city on account pursuant to any local, state or federal law. (Ord. No. 2102 (NCS).)
