Summary

To protect public health and the environment, a metropolitan
sewage disposal district (district) is required to ensure that wastewater
generated by local businesses is properly treated pursuant to the industrial
pretreatment program (program) approved by the environmental
protection agency. This requires district inspectors to inspect certain
properties to investigate actual, suspected, or potential violations of the
program. Under current law, the boundaries of a district may exist within
multiple municipal and county lines, which makes it challenging for the
district to obtain administrative inspection warrants when property
owners deny district inspectors entry to a property. The bill allows
authorized inspectors of a district to enter and inspect, in a reasonable
time and manner, any property for the purpose of investigating any
violations of the program. If an inspection is denied, the bill authorizes
a district to obtain a warrant from the district court or county court upon
a proper showing of the need for entry and inspection.
