City of San Mateo Municipal Code.


The City reserves the right to terminate sewer service for noncompliance with the provisions of this chapter which reasonably appear to present an imminent endangerment to health, safety, and welfare of persons, or to the environment. The user shall immediately cease discharge of any waste presenting such a hazard, upon verbal and/or written notice of the Director or designated representative. Such termination shall be effective immediately, but shall be reviewed pursuant to the hearing process provided by the City. The Director shall allow the user to recommence its discharge when the user has demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Director that the period of endangerment has passed, and provisions have been made to prevent future occurrences of actual or threatened discharges which may result in endangerment to individuals, the environment, damage to facilities, or NPDES permit violations.
