(1) Any industrial user who violates any of the provisions of sections 6.501 to 6.596 of this code or, where applicable, the conditions of its discharge permit, may have its discharge permit revoked and/or sewer connection severed by order of the city manager.

(2) The order shall be signed by the city manager and shall specify the nature and source of the violation. The order shall be delivered or sent by regular mail to the address of the industrial user. The order may specify the corrective actions to be taken and shall allow reasonable time for satisfactory correction. If the industrial user does not correct the violation within the time specified, or such additional time as may be allowed in writing by the city manager, then the discharge permit shall be revoked and/or the sewer connection severed as provided in the order. Correction of the violation shall not preclude assessment of monetary penalties.

(3) The filing of an appeal pursuant to section 6.591 of this code shall stay enforcement under this section pending final administrative action on the appeal. This provision supplements and does not restrict other provisions of this code, laws or regulations authorizing termination of service for delinquency in payment of fees or charges.

(4) Any industrial user whose discharge permit is revoked pursuant to this section shall be prohibited from applying for a new discharge permit for a period of two years from the date of final decision. The prohibition may be waived if the city manager determines that the issuance of a new discharge permit is necessary to avert an imminent or existing danger to the health or welfare of persons, property or the environment.
