The goal of these rules is to describe the administrative and enforcement activities specific to dischargers to the City’s combined and sanitary sewers. The Sanitary Discharges and Pretreatment Program’s goal is to preserve City infrastructure and protect water quality. These rules establish a progressive schedule of compliance activities that range from providing education and technical assistance when possible to escalating enforcement action as necessary to achieve compliance.
