(b)               Suspension Due to the Detection of Prohibited Discharge or Illicit Connection.

 

(1)               Any person discharging to the storm drainage system in violation of this article may have their storm drainage system access suspended if such suspension would abate or reduce a prohibited discharge.

 

(2)               Any person having an illicit connection to the sanitary sewer system in violation of this article may have their sanitary sewer system access suspended if such suspension would abate the prohibited discharge.

 

(3)               The Director shall provide notification of the proposed suspension of storm drainage system access prior to such suspension. Any person receiving such notice may petition the Director for a reconsideration and hearing.

 

(c)                Suspension Due to Refusal to Allow Monitoring and/or Sampling

 

(1)               Any person who does not allow the Director to conduct monitoring and/or sampling of any premises stormwater discharge before the discharge enters the storm drainage system may have their storm drainage system access suspended.
