Special agreements may be assigned or transferred to a new owner and/or operator only if the user gives at least thirty (30) days’ written notice to the City and the City approves the special agreement transfer or assignment. The notice to the City shall include a written certification by the new owner and/or operator that includes:
A. A statement signed by the user and the transferee or assignee that the transferee/assignee has no immediate intent to change the facility’s operations and processes;
B. Identify the specific date on which the transfer or assignment is to occur;
C. Written acknowledgement by the transferee/assignee of full responsibility for complying with the existing special agreement.
Failure to provide advance written notice of transfer or assignment renders the special agreement void as of the date of the facility transfer.
Provided that the above occurs and that there are no significant changes to the operation and process, or wastewater discharge, the transferee or assignee and the new owner and/or operator will be considered an existing user and be covered by the existing limits and requirements in the previous owner/operator’s special agreement.
