(a) The Director shall impose terms, conditions, and requirements on the permit that the Director deems necessary to carry out the purpose of this chapter.

(b) The waste discharge permit shall contain the effective date and expiration date of the permit, statement of transferability; discharge limitations based on applicable pretreatment standards or pretreatment requirements; monitoring, sampling, reporting and record keeping requirements; and statement of penalties for noncompliance of permit terms, conditions, and requirements; and other provisions deemed appropriate by the Director for inclusion in the permit.

(c) A waste discharge permit may require pretreatment of waste before discharge; restriction of peak flow discharges; discharge of certain waste waters only to specified sewers, location of points of discharge, prohibition of certain wastewater components; restriction of discharge to certain hours of the day; sampling and monitoring requirements, payment of charges to help defray the cost of the pretreatment program, and other conditions as may be required to effectuate the purpose of this chapter. The permit may also require specific investigations or studies to determine methods of reducing toxic constituents in the discharge.

(d) If a current permit holder wishes to continue to discharge after the expiration date of the permit, an application to reissue the permit must be filed by the user not less than 30 days prior to the expiration date. Except as provided in subsection (e) of this section, a user that continues to discharge the regulated waste stream after the permit expires is in violation of this chapter.

(e) An expired permit will continue to be effective and enforceable until the permit is reissued if the permit holder has submitted a complete application at least 30 days prior to the expiration date, and that failure to renew the permit is not due to any act or failure on the part of the permit holder.
