The Borough may require a significant industrial user to provide and operate, at the significant industrial user's own expense, monitoring facilities to allow inspection, sampling, and flow measurement of the discharge from the significant industrial user. The monitoring facility should normally be situated on the significant industrial user's premises, but the Borough may, when such a location would be impractical or cause undue hardship on the significant industrial user, allow the facility to be constructed in the public street or sidewalk area and located so that it will not be obstructed by landscaping or parked vehicles.
Whether constructed on public or private property, the monitoring facilities shall be provided in accordance with the Borough's requirements and all applicable local construction standards and specifications. There shall be ample room in or near the monitoring facility to allow accurate sampling and preparation of samples for transport. Construction shall be completed within 90 days after construction plans have been approved by the Borough, in accordance with Article VI, § 155-30, of this chapter. The monitoring facility shall be maintained at all times in a safe and proper operating condition at the expense of the significant industrial user.
Detailed plans showing the intended facilities shall be submitted to the Borough for review within the time period approved by the Borough, and shall be acceptable to the Borough before construction of the facility. The Borough shall notify the user, in writing, when the detailed plans are acceptable for construction.
The Borough may inspect the facilities of any user to ascertain whether the purpose of any Borough ordinance is being met and all requirements are being complied with. Persons or occupants of premises where wastewater is created or where there is a wastewater discharge shall allow the Borough or its representative ready access at all reasonable times to all parts of the premises for the purpose of inspection, sampling, records examination or in the performance of any of their duties. The Borough 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 a security measure in force which would require proper identification and clearance before entry into its premises, the user shall make necessary arrangements with its security guards so that upon presentation of suitable identification, the Borough will be permitted to enter, without delay, for the purpose of performing their specific responsibilities.
