Type of Action Requested:
Approve a Resolution making the document entitled "City of Casa Grande Pretreatment Regulations" a public record and adopting the document entitled "City of Casa Grande Wastewater Pretreatment Program Enforcement Response Plan."
Staff recommends the Mayor and City Council approve a Resolution making the document entitled "City of Casa Grande Pretreatment Regulations" a public record and adopting the document entitled "City of Casa Grande Wastewater Pretreatment Program Enforcement Response Plan."
As required by the City of Casa Grande AZPDES (Arizona Pollution Discharge Elimination System) Permit issued by ADEQ, (Arizona Department of Environmental Quality) the City is required to update our local limits and pretreatment program to ensure compliance with Federal and State regulations, as well as maintaining operation capability and efficiency at the Water Reclamation Facility (WRF). The City’s current local limits were created and adopted in 2004. Since that time, regulations governing pollutants of concern have been revised, and the WRF has been expanded and improved. These changes necessitate revisions to our Local Limits to ensure our permitting and oversight of industry is in compliance with Federal requirements. In order to update the Pretreatment Program, as well as to revise and/or create these documents, a consultant was selected to review, analyze, and draft these documents to ensure they reflect current standards and conditions to ensure the operation of the WRF is protected from detrimental wastewater discharges to the facility. The Pretreatment Regulations, Local Limits Study, and Enforcement Response Plan were submitted to ADEQ in November of 2016 to update our permit on how the City will implement our Pretreatment Program. On December 1, 2016, ADEQ mailed a letter of intent to approve the Local Limits and Legal Authority Revisions. A 30-day Public Notice was published and ended on January 13, 2017. On January 18, 2017, ADEQ issued a letter of Approval of the City of Casa Grande Local Limits & Legal Authority Revisions. Per this letter, the City is required to implement its pretreatment program in accordance with its wastewater permit.
There are no direct fiscal impacts anticipated for the city. Fees for review and inspection services of the Pretreatment program have not been updated in quite some time. With the assistance of our consultant, applicable fees will be revised and/or established through the City of Casa Grande consolidated fee schedule process.
