Body

 

Staff Recommends: Approval of the attached Ordinance.

 

 

Explanation:

Chapter 57 of the Hollywood Code of Ordinances establishes the regulations related to industrial pretreatment.

 

The Federal Department of Environmental Protection (“FDEP”) has adopted Rule 40 CFR Part 441 addressing the requirements for dental facilities and offices that discharge dental amalgam wastewater into a publicly owned treatment works such as municipal sewage system.

 

FDEP has provided City staff with a list of dental businesses which will be effected by the rule requirements.

 

Pursuant to Rule 62-625.500(2)(a) of the Florida Administrative Code, the City, as the Control Authority, has the legal authority to apply and enforce these additional requirements.

 

The Department of Public Utilities staff have reviewed the current regulations and have determined that these regulations need to be updated in order to comply with FDEP’s rule.

 

 

Fiscal Impact:

Approval of this ordinance will not fiscally impact the City as this is a proposal for a EPA mandated program that requires monitoring existing and new dental locations which can be achieved with no addition to staff.
