E. 
Superintendent's Decisions. If any waters or wastes are discharged, or are proposed to be discharged into the public sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in Section 705.050(D), and which in the judgment of the Superintendent, may have deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment or receiving water, or which otherwise create a hazard to life or constitute a public nuisance, the Superintendent may:
1. 
Reject the wastes.
2. 
Require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for the discharge into the public sewers.
3. 
Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge, and/or,
4. 
Require payment to cover the added cost of handling and treating wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges under the provisions of Section 705.050(J).

Such manhole, when required, shall be accessible and safely located, and shall be constructed in accordance with plans approved by the Superintendent. The manhole shall be installed by the owner at his/her expense, and shall be maintained by him/her so as to be safe and accessible at all times.
I. 
Measurements. All measurements, tests and analysis of the characteristics of waters 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 manhole 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 to life, limb and property. (The particular analysis involved will determine whether a twenty-four (24) hour composite of all outfalls of a premise is appropriate or whether a grab sample or samples should be taken. Normally, but not always, BOD and suspended solid analyses are obtained from the twenty-four (24) hour composites of all outfalls whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples.)
J. 
Agreements For Special Treatment. No statement contained in this Chapter 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.
