lower than the limitations established in the regulations
below if in his opinion such more severe limitations are
necessary to meet the above objectives. Deliberate dilution
with unpolluted water to meet the concentrations established
in the regulations below shall not be acceptable. In forming
his opinion as to the acceptability, the superintendent will
give consideration to such facts as the quantity of subject
waste in relation to flows and velocities in the sewers,
materials of construction of the wastewater treatment plant,
and other pertinent factors. The limitations or restrictions
on materials or characteristics of waste or wastewater discharged
to the sanitary sewers which shall not be violated
without approval of the superintendent are as follows:

d) Any waters or wastes containing solids, liquids or
gasses in sufficient quantity either singly or by interaction
with other wastes to injure or interfere with any wastewater
treatment process, constitute a hazard to humans or animals,
waters of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, including, but not
limited to, cyanides, hexavalent chromium, copper, zinc, cadmium,
nickel and phenols in the waste as discharged to the public sewer.
The following concentrations shall not be exceeded in industrial

Village is committed, in its NPDES permit to specified remove a percentage of the incompatible pollutant. In
those instances the applicable pretreatment standards may be correspondingly reduced to levels determined by the
engineer, or his duly authorized representative or State
Special ConditionsN-o- statement contained in this Section
shall be construed as preventing any special agreement
or arrangement between the Village and any industrial concern
whereby an industrial waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the Village for treatment, subject
to possible payment therefor by the industrial concern for subsequent treatment. Any industrial concern may appeal
to the Village Council and determination made by the engineer in the enforcement of this Ordinance.
After passage of this Ordinance, each person whose opera- tions entails the discharge of industrial wastes to a public sewer shall prepare and file with the engineer a written
statement setting forth the nature of the operation contem- plated or presently carried on, the amount and source of water required for use, the proposed point of discharge of said
wastes into the wastewater collection systems of the Village, subject to possible payment therefor by the industrial concern for subsequent treatment, the estimated amount to be so dis- charged and a fair statement setting forth the expected bacterial, physical, chemical, and other known characteristics of said wastes. Within a reasonable time of receipt of such statement, it shall be duty of the Village to make an order stating such minimum restric- tions as in the judgement of the engineer may be necessary to any industrial concern may appeal to the Village Council and deter- mination made by the engineer in the enforcement of this Ordinance adequately guard against unlawful uses of the Village' s wastewater system.
b) Submission of Plans
Where pretreatment or equalization of wastewater flows prior to discharge into any part of the wastewater treatment system is required, plans, specifications, other pertinent data or in- formation, including installation of facilities and equipment re- lating to such pretreatment or flow-control facilities shall be subject to the review and approval of the superintendent. Such approval shall not exempt the discharge or such facilities from compliance with any applicable code, ordinance, rule, regulation
or order of any governmental authority. Any subsequent altera- tions or additions to such pretreatment or flowc-ontrol facili- ties shall not be made without due notice to and prior approval of the superintendent.
Grease and Oil InterceptorsF-o-r grease, oil and inorganic material such as sand, grit, etc.,interceptors shall be pro- vided when in the opinion of the engineer, they are necessary for the proper handling of liquid wastes containing floatable grease in excessive amounts, as specified in paragraph 4 (b), 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 engineer, and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. In the maintaining of these interceptors, the poowsnaler (s) shall be responsible for the proper removal and dis- by appropriate means of the captured material and shall maintain records of the dates and means of disposal which are subject to review by the superintendent. Any removal and haul- ing of the collected materials not performed by the owner (s) fpiermrsosn. nel must be performed by currently 1 icensed waste disposal

to be kept under the provisions of this Ordinance, (2)
inspecting any monitoring equipment or method, and (3) sampling
any discharge of wastewater to the treatment works. The Superintendent
may enter upon the property at any hour under emergency
e) Protection from Accidental Discharge
Each industrial user shall provide protection from accidental
discharge of prohibited materials or other wastes regulated by
this Ordinance. Facilities to prevent accidental discharge of
prohibited materials shall be provided and maintained at the
owner or operator' s own cost and expense. Detailed plans showing
facilities and operating procedures to provide this protection
shall be submitted to the Superintendent for review, and
shall be approved by him before construction of the facility.
Review and approval of such plans and operating procedures shall
not relieve the industrial user from the responsibility to
modify his facility as necessary to meet the requirements of
f) Reporting of Accidental Discharge
If, for any reason, a facility does not comply with or will
be unable to comply with any prohibition or limitations in this
Ordinance, the facility responsible for such discharge shall
immediately notify the Superintendent so that corrective actions
may be taken to protect the treatment system. In addition, a
written report addressed to the Superintendent detailing the
date, time and cause of the accidental discharge, the quantity
and characteristics of the discharge and corrective action taken
to prevent future discharges, shall be filed by the responsible
industrial facility within five (5) days of the occurrence of
the noncomplying discharge.
VI: Industrial Wastewater Monitoring and Reporting
a) Discharge Reports
1) Every significant industrial user shall file a periodic
report at such intervals as are designated by the Superintendent.
The Superintendent may require any other industrial
users discharging or proposing to discharge into the treatment
system to file such periodic reports.
2) The discharge report shall include, but, in the discretion
of the Superintendent, shall not be limited to,
nature of process, volume, rates of flow, mass emission rate,
production quantities, hours of operation, concentrations of
controlled pollutants or other information which relates to
the generation of waste. Such reports may also include the
chemical constituents and quantity of liquid materials stored
on site even though they are not normally discharged. In
addition to discharge reports, the Superintendent may require
information in the form of self-monitoring reports.
Ordinance No. 14-84
Page 13 of 17
b) Records and Monitoring
1) All industrial users who discharge or propose to discharge
wastewaters to the wastewater treatment system shall
maintain such records of production and related factors,
effluent flows, and pollutant amounts or concentrations as
are necessary to demonstrate compliance with the requirements
of this Ordinance and any applicable State or Federal
pretreatment standards or requirements.
2) Such records shall be made available upon request by the
Superintendent. All such records relating to compliance with
pretreatment standards shall be made available to officials
of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency upon demand. A
summary of such data indicating the industrial user' s compliance
with this Ordinance shall be prepared as requested
and submitted to the Superintendent.
3) The owner or operator of any premises or facility discharging
industrial wastes into the system shall install at
his own cost and expense suitable control manholes or access
points, and monitoring equipment to facilitate the accurate
observation, sampling, and measurement of wastes. Such
equipment shall be maintained in proper working order and kept
safe and accessible at all times. Sampling methods, location,
times, durations, and frequencies are to be determined on an
individual basis subject to approval by the Superintendent.
4) Wastewater Volume DeterminationTh--e volume of flow used
for computing industrial waste surcharges shall be the metered
water consumption of the person except as herein provided
in this paragraph.
If the person discharging industrial wastes into the
public sewers procures any part, or all, of this water from
sources other than a metered, public water system, all or
part of which is discharged into the public sewer, the person shall install and maintain at his expense water meteres of a
type approved by the engineer for the purpose of determining
the volume of water obtained from those other sources.
Access to these meters shall be made available to representatives
of the Village at any reasonable time. The accuracy of
said meters shall be verified at the discharger' s expense on
a once per two year basis at a minimum or at the request of
the Superintendent, by an independent testing company.
The person discharging industrial wastes into the public
sewers may install and maintain at his expense metering
devices for determining the volume of waste being discharged
to the public sewer, from which the industrial waste surcharge
would be computed. The measuring devices shall be of
a type acceptable to the Engineer.
The Engineer may require the installation of devices for
measuring the volume of waste discharged if these volumes
cannot otherwise be determined from the metered water consumption
records. Any metering device for determining the volume
of waste discharged to the public sewer shall be installed,
owned and maintained by the person responsible for its discharge.
Following approval and installation, such meters may
not be removed without the consent of the Engineer.
5) The monitoring equipment shall be located and maintained
on the industrial user' s premises outside of the building.
When such a location would be impractical or cause undue
hardship onthe user, the Superintendent may allow such facility
to be constructed in the public street or sidewalk area, with
the approval of the public agency having jurisdiction over such street or sidewalk, and located so that it will not be
obstructed by public utilities, landscaping or parked vehicles.
Ordinance No. 14-84

6) Whether constructed on public or private property,
the monitoring facilities shall be constructed in dance with accor- the Superintendent' s requirements and all
applicable construction standards and specifications.
c) Inspection, Sampling and Analysis
1) Compliance DeterminationC-o-mpliance determinations
with respect to Section 2 prohibitions and limitations
may be made on the basis of either instantaneous grab
samples or composite samples of wastewater. Composite
samples may be taken over a 24 hour period, or over a longer or shorter time span, as determined necessary by the Superintendent to meet the needs of specific circum- stances.
Sampling and MonitoringIn--dustrial wastes discharged
into the public sewers shall be subject to periodic in- spection with a determination of character and concentra- tion of said wastes. The determination shall be made as often as may be deemed necessary by the engineer but in
no case less than two (2) 24 hour composite samples per month. The owner shall be responsible for the collection
and testing of the aforementioned samples.
Samples shall be collected in such a manner as to be representative of the compostion of the wastes. The samp- ling shall be accomplished by the use of automatic sampling equipment capable of collecting composite samples. Access to sampling locations shall be granted to the engineer or his authorized representative at all times. Every care shall be exercised in the collection of samples to insure their preservation in a state comparable to that at the time the same was taken.
2) Analysis of Industrial WastewatersLa--boratory analysis of industrial wastewater samples shall be performed in accordance with the current edition of "Standard Methods" or the "Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste" published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Analysis of those pollutants not covered by these publica- tions shall be performed in accordance with procedures established by the State Environmental Protection Agency. However, alternative methods for certain analyses of industrial wastes may be used subject to mutual agreement between the engineer and the person responsible for its dis- charge. Determination of the character and concentration of the industrial wastes shall be made by the person responsible for the discharge, or his qualified agent as approved by the engineer. ,The results of the analyses, shall be reported to the Village on a monthly basis on forms provided by the Village. The Village shall make its own analyses on the wastes and these determinations shall be binding as a basis pfoarracghraaprhg.es, except under circumstances in the following
In case the analyses performed by the industry and the Village result in substantially different values, an effort shall be made by the industry to collect samples at the same time the Village collects its own samples. The results of the analyses on the samples collected by the Village and the industry shall be compared using the same testing procedures as outlined in the latest edition of "Standard Methods" and the differences negotiated.
Section VII: Sewer Service Charges
For the purpose of providing for the cost of the management, maintenance, operation and repair of the sewerage system and mseewnat ge pumping, treatment and disposal works, and for the enlarge- strucotior nreplacement of the system and works, and for the con- and re-construction of main ahd interceptor sewers and

the payment of interest on any debt incurred for the struction thereof, con- there is hereby levied and assessed upon each lot or parcel of land in the Village of Granville on which a building, commercial, industrial, institutional or residential is located, which is connected to the Village of Granville sewer system a sewer service charge as hereinafter
provided. All classes of users shall be levied charges on the same basis as described hereinafter.
The charge for operation, maintenance and replacement (OM &R) shall be calculated on the volume of wastewater discharged
directly or indirectly into the sewer system and shall be
measured by the water used by each sewer user as shown by the
water meter readings. The sewer service charge for residents
of Granville shall consist of a debt service charge of
1.65 per thousand gallons, and a user charge for OM &R of
1. 93 per thousand gallons. A minimum monthly charge of
4.95 shall be paid by all users of the system regardless of actual usage readings, which shall be used for debt service and capital amortization. These rates shall take effect January 1, 1985.
The sewer service charge system will be audited annually by the Village with the charges being adjusted upwards or downwards in order to assure that the system is and will continue to be self sufficient and that sufficient revenue is being generated from each user class in the proper proportions. No free service
shall be provided in this service charge system. Each user will be notified by the Village, at least annually, in conjunction with a regular bill, of the rates for that year and that portion
of the service charges which are attributable to the user charge for operation, maintenance and replacement of the system. In addition, rates will be reviewed and adjusted accordingly to com- pensate users of each class for any overages and underages accumulated during the previous rate period.
The sewer service charge herein assessed shall be in addition to the charge made for water used.
Where a private supply is used, the sewer service charge may be calculated by requiring the property owner to meter the private water supply, such metering to be at the property owner' s expense and such measurement to be used in the same manner as a public water meter in determining the charge. The Village may, at its option, in lieu of such metering, apply a sewer service charge of per month to such premises. Each resident, institution, commercial or industrial establishment shall be subject to a separate sewer charge even though such establish- ment may be served by a sewer connection common to other premises. If it be found by the citizen that the water or waste measured or metered for any customer is greater than that actually being discharged directly or indirectly into the sewage system, the Village may modify and adjust such volume in accordance with the facts and with justice and equity, but not charge less than the minimum shall be made for any customer subject to the sewer charge.
Where a private water supply is used ando/r the user desires to meter his water use or sewage flow, the owner shall incur all expenses related to the installation of said meter. Prior to installation of the meter, the type of equipment installed and its location must be approved by the Village. Prior to placing said meter into use after installation, the Village shall inspect and approve the meter installation. Any modifications required by the Village shall be made at the user' s expense and prior to the meter' s use. The meter shall be located in a suitable location that will accommodate readings by Village personnel. Tampering with the meter by the user to cause inaccurate readings 1s0h.all make the user subject to the penalty provisions of Section

monthly on the basis of the following formula:
P equals (A) x B.O. D. plus (B) x S. S. where A=$per lb. BODy/r.
and B=$per lb. SS/ yr.
P equals monthly surcharge.
BOD equals pounds of biochemical oxygen demand per month in
excess of (300) mg. 1 concentration in the wastewater.
S. S. equals pounds of suspended solids per month in excess
of (300) mg. 1 concentration.
In the above formula A and B refer to the total expenditures
per pound of BOD and suspended solids, respectively, to collect,
convey and treat the wastewater, which shall be determined
annually by the Village.
Industrial cost recovery will be established, if an industrial
user begins discharging, in accordance with CFR 35. 928 or
latest revisions thereto, if determined applicable.
Section VIII: Applicability of Sewer Rental Charge:
Where a sewer is available, it will be presumed that the
waste from the premises either will be discharged directly or
indirectly into the sewerage system and the property will be
subject to the current sewer rental charges.
Where premises are not served directly or indirectly by the
sewerage system and should be exempt from the sewer rental
charge, it will be the responsibility of the property owner or
other interested party to notify the Village of said claim for
exemption. All lots, lands, buildings or premises owned by
Granville, Ohio, within the Village shall be subject to the
sewer rental charge as set forth herein.
IX: Lien of Sewer Rental:
The owner of each lot, land or premise connected to the
sanitary or combined sewer system in the Village of Granville,
Ohio, or having such connection available shall, as well as
