These are administrative rules for the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) Pollution Prevention Services (PPS) Group. For background information and additional guidance regarding this rule, see the Appendices.
These rules apply to new and existing users that introduce, or are expected to introduce upon commencement of operations, pollutants into the public sewer from any non-domestic source.
The purpose of these rules is to define the structural, functional, operational, and location requirements for required monitoring access structures that must be installed and maintained by certain users. The intent is to ensure that a user who is required to construct a monitoring access structure does so in a manner that guarantees access by City personnel for the safe and discreet collection of representative samples.
