Any user that is discharging fifteen (15) kilograms of hazardous wastes as defined in 40 CFR 261 in a calendar month or any facility discharging any amount of acutely hazardous wastes as specified in 40 CFR 261.30(d) and 261.33(c) is required to provide a one (1) time notification in writing to the City, EPA Regional Waste Management Division Director and the Hazardous Waste Division of the DOE.

Any user exempt from this notification shall comply with the requirements contained herein within thirty (30) days of becoming aware of a discharge of fifteen (15) kilograms or more of hazardous wastes in a calendar month or the discharge of acutely hazardous wastes to the POTW.

Any user discharging one hundred (100) kilograms or more of hazardous waste in any calendar month to the POTW where the pollutants are not reported through self-monitoring under an applicable State Waste Discharge Permit and/or special agreement shall report discharge to both the City and the DOE.

All notifications shall be in writing and will include the following information:

A. The name of the dangerous waste as set forth in Chapter 173-303 WAC, and the dangerous waste number;

B. The specific hazardous constituents;

C. The estimated mass and concentration of such constituents in the waste streams discharged during the calendar month;

D. The type of discharge (continuous, batch, or other);

E. The estimated mass of dangerous waste constituents in the waste stream expected to be discharged in the following twelve (12) months.

These notification requirements do not apply to pollutants already reported under any self-monitoring requirements in a State Discharge Permit.

Whenever the EPA publishes final rules identifying additional hazardous wastes or new characteristics of hazardous waste, a user shall notify the City of the discharge of such a substance within ninety (90) days of the effective date of such regulations.

In the case of any notification made under this section, a user shall certify under oath that it has a program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of hazardous wastes generated to the degree it has determined to be economically practical. (Ord. 2351, 2018)
