Any waters or wastes containing phenols or other taste or odor-producing substances, in such concentrations exceeding limits which may be established by the Superintendent as necessary, after treatment of the composite sewage, to meet the requirements of the state, federal, or other public agencies of jurisdiction for such discharge to the receiving waters.
7. Any radioactive wastes or isotopes of such hand-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by the Superintendent in compliance with applicable state or federal regulations.
8. Any waters or wastes having a pH in excess of nine and five-tenths (9.5).
9. Materials which exert or cause:

A. Unusual concentrations of inert, suspended solids (such as, but not limited to, Fuller's earth, lime slurries, and lime residues) or of dissolved solids (such as, but not limited to, sodium chloride and sodium sulfate).

B. Excessive discoloration (such as, but not limited to, dye wastes and vegetable tanning solutions).
C. Unusual BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) or chlorine requirements in such quantities as to constitute a significant load on the sewage treatment works.
D. Unusual volume of flow or concentration of waters constituting "slugs" as defined herein.
10. Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amenable to treatment or reduction by the sewage treatment processes employed, or are amendable to treatment only to such degree that the sewage treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of other agencies having jurisdiction over discharge to the receiving waters.
47.1540. Remedies for Prohibited Discharged into Sewers.
1. If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the public sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in Sections 113.135 and 113.140 of the City Code and which in the judgment of the Superintendent may have a deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment, or receiving waters, or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Superintendent may:
A. Reject the wastes;
B. Require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sanitary sewers;
C. Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge; and/or
D. Require payment to cover the added costs of handling and treating wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges under the provisions of Section 113.145(2) of the City Code.

2. If the Superintendent permits the pretreatment or equalization of waste flows, the design and installation of the plants and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the Superintendent, and subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances, and laws.

47.1545. Interceptors; Specifications. Grease, oil, and sand interceptors shall be provided for the proper handling of liquid wastes containing grease in excessive amounts, or any flammable wastes, sand, or other harmful ingredients; except that such interceptors shall not be required for private living quarters or dwelling units. All interceptors shall be of a type and capacity approved by the Superintendent and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. Minimum capacity of a grease or oil trap shall be seven hundred fifty (750) gallons. Minimum capacity of a sand trap shall be one thousand (1,000) gallons.
47.1550. Maintenance Requirements for Preliminary Treatment Facilities. Where preliminary treatment or flow-equalizing facilities are provided for any waters or wastes, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner at his expense.
47.1555. Requirements for Manhole and Meters., etc. When required by the Superintendent, the owner of any property serviced by a building sewer carrying industrial wastes shall install a suitable control manhole together with such necessary meters and other appurtenances in the building sewer to facilitate observation, sampling, and measurement of the wastes. Such manhole, when required, shall be accessibly and safely located and shall be constructed in accordance with the plans approved by the Superintendent. The manhole shall be installed by the owner at his expense and shall be maintained by him so as to be safe and accessible at all times.

47.1560. Standards for Analyses; Sampling Techniques. All measurements, tests, and analyses of the characteristics of water and wastes 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, and shall be determined at the control manhole provided, or upon suitable samples taken at said control manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been required, the control shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected. Sampling shall be carried out by customarily accepted methods to reflect the effect of constituents upon the sewage works and to determine the existence of hazards of life, limb, and property. (The particular analyses involved will determine whether a twenty-four hour composite of all outfalls of a premises is appropriate or whether a grab sample or samples should be taken. Normally, but not always, BOD and suspended solids analyses are obtained from twenty-four hour composites of all outfalls whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples.)

47.1565. Agreements Between City and Industry Concerning Acceptance of Unusual Wastes. No statement contained in this Subchapter shall be construed as preventing any special agreement or arrangement between the City and any industrial concern whereby an industrial waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the City for treatment, subject to payment, therefor, by the industrial concern.
47.1570. Destruction or Damage to System, a Violation. Without the prior written consent of the Superintendent, no person shall break, damage, destroy, uncover, deface, or tamper with any structure, appurtenance, or equipment that is part of the sewage works.
47.1575. Powers and Authority of Inspectors. The Superintendent and other duly authorized employees of the City bearing proper credentials and identification shall be permitted to enter all properties for the purposes of inspection, observation, measurement, sampling, and testing in accordance with the provisions of this Subchapter. The Superintendent or his representatives shall have no authority to inquire into any processes including metallurgical, chemical, oil, refining, ceramic, paper, or other industries beyond that point having direct bearing on the kind and source of discharge to the sewers or waterways or facilities for waste treatment.

47.1580. City Employees to Observe Safety Rules. While performing the necessary work on private properties referred to in Section 113.190, the Superintendent or duly authorized employees of the City shall observe all safety rules applicable to the premises established by the owner, and the owner shall be held harmless for injury or death to the City employees, and the City shall indemnify the owner against loss or damage to its property by City employees and against liability claims and demands for personal injury or property damage asserted against the owner and growing out of the gauging and sampling operation, except as such may be caused by negligence or failure of the owner to maintain safe conditions as required in Section 113.160.

47.1585. Easement Permitting Entry for Inspection, etc. The Superintendent and other duly authorized employees of the City bearing proper credentials and identification shall be permitted to enter all private properties through which the City holds a duly negotiated easement for the purpose of, but not limited to, inspection, observation, measurement, sampling, repair, and maintenance of any portion of the sewer works lying within said easement. All entry and subsequent work, if any, on said easement shall be done in full accordance with the terms of the duly negotiated easement pertaining to the private property involved.
47.1590. Pump Station Specifications. The City will not accept for public dedication, nor agree to maintain or operate, any sewage pump station which, at the time the request is made for the City to operate, maintain, or take over such pump station, serves less than four (4) separate businesses or residences. Any pump station for which the owner is requesting the City to assume responsibility, must be built according to the specifications of the City, the Ten State Standards for sewer construction attached to Or. #984 and using equipment and materials specified by the City. Specifications for individual pumps shall be as follows: F.E. Meyers, 1-1/4", Model WGL20-21-15 Grinder Pump, 230 Volt, single phase, 2 HP, 3450 RPM, 60 hertz motor with 10' stainless steel lifting chain and 15" of electric cable. (Ord. 1245, 3-12-01)
