Any waters or wastes containing strong acid iron pickling wastes or concentrated plating solutions whether neutralized or not.
5. 
Any waters or wastes containing iron, cluomium, copper, zinc, and similar objectionable or toxic substances; or wastes exerting an excessive chlorine requirement to such degree that any such material received in the composite sewage at the sewage treatment works exceeds the limits established by the Director for such materials.
6. 
Any waters or wastes containing phenols or other taste- or odor-producing substances in such concentrations exceeding limits which may be established by the Director 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 half-life or concentration as may exceed limits established by the Director in compliance with applicable State or Federal regulations.
8. 
Any waters or wastes having a pH in excess of nine point five (9.5) or less than four point zero (4.0) or having any other corrosive property capable of causing damage or hazard to structures, equipment and personnel of the sewage works.
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 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, chemical oxygen demand, or chlorine requirements in such quantities as to constitute a significant load on the sewage treatment works.
d. 
Unusual volume of low or concentration of wastes 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 amenable to treatment only to such degree that the sewage treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of other agencies having jurisdiction over the receiving waters.
E. 
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 Subsection (D) above, and which in the judgment of the Director 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 Director may:
1. 
Reject the wastes; or
2. 
Require pre-treatment, at the owner's expense, to reduce objectionable characteristics or constituents to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers; and/or
3. 
Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge by developing discharge limitations.
If the Director permits the pre-treatment or equalization of waste flows, the design and installation of the plants and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the Director and subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances and laws.
F. 
Grease, oil and sand interceptors shall be provided when, in the opinion of the Director, they are necessary 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 Director and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. All grease traps and interceptors shall be cleaned out periodically as required to ensure that grease is maintained within the trap or interceptor and not entering the public sewer. The scheduling and costs of the cleaning is the responsibility of the owner. Documentation of the cleaning and removal of grease from the grease trap shall be provided to the inspector as requested. This includes under-sink grease traps. Facilities required to have a grease trap shall maintain records of the cleaning and maintenance of all grease traps on a manifest kept at the facility. Failure to provide the manifest and cleaning/maintenance records when requested by the inspector may result in a citation. If a problem occurs in the public sewer due to grease, the facilities connected to that portion of the public sewer will be subject to inspection including a review of the cleaning/maintenance records. Any facility that has not cleaned the grease trap properly, or the grease trap is not functioning properly, may be held liable for any damage or costs created by the grease in the public sewer and/or may receive a citation. Any existing facility that does not currently have a grease trap or has an inadequate grease trap that has reoccurring problems with discharges of grease into the public sewer shall be required to install an adequate grease trap. The inspector shall be allowed access to the grease trap for the purpose of inspection during normal business hours. Sizing and installation of grease traps shall comply with the latest edition of the Design Standards as well as current International Building and Plumbing Code requirements.
G. 
Where preliminary treatment or flow-equalizing facilities are provided for any waters or wastes, they shall be continuously maintained in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner(s) at his/her expense.
H. 
When required by the Director, 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 plans approved by the Director. 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. 
All measurements, tests and analyses of the characteristics of waters and wastes to which reference is made in this Section 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 called 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 analyses 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 solids analyses are obtained from twenty-four (24) hours composites of all outfalls whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples. An industry shall provide regular sampling of sewer discharge if deemed appropriate by the City due to a violation or suspicion of illegal discharge. The required frequency of the sampling will be determined on the magnitude of the issue. The owner shall be responsible for the scheduling and costs of the sampling.
J. 
No statement contained in Subsections (A) through (I) shall be construed as preventing any special agreement or arrangement between the City and any industrial concern whereby any industrial waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the City for treatment, subject to payment therefore by the industrial concern.

Sewer lift stations will be discouraged in system extensions and will be allowed only when the construction of the proposed sewer lift station eliminates the requirement for one (1) existing lift station. Final approval shall be determined by the Director. Individual private grinder pumps with private force mains may be permitted for some applications. Final approval of a private system shall be determined by the Director. The installation costs and maintenance of the private pumps, mains and entire system shall be the responsibility of the owner.
6. 
No extension shall be constructed that conflicts with an approved systemwide or local master plan. When such master plan requires a size of pipe or facility that exceeds the hydraulic loading of the area to be served by the main extension, the applicant may request reimbursement for the documented difference in cost incurred by conforming to the master plan. The applicant may receive reimbursement from future development for oversized infrastructure as development occurs. Future developments would be required to pay a capacity charge for connection to existing facilities that have been oversized. The charge would be collected by the City and reimbursed to the original developer that installed the oversized improvements. The amount charged would be based on the amount of capacity the future development would require. The Board shall review and approve all such requests. The City has the right to refuse reimbursement to the applicant at the discretion of the Board.
