               in writing together with the reasons therefore.

       D.      The Public Works Director may require that a bond be posted with said Director
               who will impose reasonable conditions and may establish reasonable requirements
               for the bond so that it can be used to restore the highway to a standard acceptable
               to the Public Works Director.

       E.      All work performed on a Class VI highway under a permit issued hereunder shall be
               in a manner acceptable to the Public Works Director.

       F.      In the event of any violation of the permit, the Public Works Director shall withdraw
               the permit and order the person who received the permit, or the agents of that
               person, to terminate all work until further notice. In the event of any violation of
               the permit or of beginning work without a permit, the person shall be guilty of a
               violation and fined $100 for the first offense and $250 for a subsequent offense
               within a calendar year, and shall be liable for any costs to repair, remedy, or
               otherwise return the road to an acceptable and stable condition as determined by
               the Director of Public Works.

             imposition, by means of posting, of access restrictions and weight limits on highways
             during the times and seasons when such highways are most vulnerable to damage.

      2.     Title:

             This Ordinance shall be known and may be cited as the “Seasonal Restrictions on

                      them, are authorized to impose temporary vehicle weight restrictions upon
                      users of any Town highway during such periods as, in their judgment,
                      freezing and thawing have rendered the highway susceptible to unreasonable
                      damage if used by heavy vehicles.

             B.       Such weight restrictions shall be imposed by posting the legible signs, at

                      temporary wheeled and/or motorized vehicle restrictions upon users of any
                      Class VI highway during such periods as, in his or her judgment, freezing,
                      thawing, or other weather conditions have rendered the highway susceptible
                      to unreasonable damage if used by wheeled or motorized vehicles.

              required by the Director of Public Works who will impose reasonable conditions and
              may establish reasonable regulations for said bonding and restoring the highway.

       7.     Fines in the Event of a Violation:

              Any person who shall drive or cause to be driven on a highway so posted, a vehicle in

              condition as determined by the Director of Public Works.

       8.     Exemptions:
              (A)     Town or other government vehicles being used for official business, utility
                      trucks servicing local utilities on an emergency basis, and emergency vehicles
                      responding to an emergency, shall be exempted from the posted restrictions.

              (B)     At the request of a person whose property is accessible only by a Town
                      highway with posted seasonal restrictions, the Director of Public Works or
                      Highway Superintendent may, in their discretion, grant an exception from
                      such restrictions, if such a person has an immediate and urgent need for a

                      by a vehicle in excess of the posted weight, or by a vehicle whose access has

                   Space expires and the parking meter indicates or displays an "Expired Meter" signal,
                   whether such "Expired Meter" signal is the result of the failure to deposit a coin and
                   put the parking meter into operation, or the result of the expiration of the authorized
                   time of the parking meter. Or, in the case of “Pay and Display” parking meters, the
                   payment receipt on the dashboard indicates that paid time has expired or there is no

name under which the applicant does or proposes to do business, the number of vehicles the
applicant desires to operate, a description of each vehicle and such other facts as the Town

        7.     Insurance: Before a license is issued, every applicant for a license to operate a
taxicab or taxicabs shall furnish a certificate of insurance covering the term of the license.
The certificate shall be issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in the
State of New Hampshire, and the certificate shall evidence the issuing by the insurance
company of a liability insurance policy or policies upon each taxicab in a form satisfactory
to the Town. The policy or policies shall indemnify the applicant against damages for injury

resulting from any one accident and not less than three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000)

carriage of passengers with the Town. The card shall be conspicuously displayed in every

passenger first employing him without the consent of the first passenger, and no driver shall
refuse to carry any passenger by reason of his or her unwillingness to consent to the carriage
of any other passenger or passengers at the same time.

State of New Hampshire or of this or any other ordinances or by-laws of the Town
regulating traffic, or failure to keep in force the liability insurance as provided in paragraph
7, shall be grounds for the revocation of a license granted under this Ordinance.

       12.     Revocation for Conviction: The Town may revoke licenses granted under this
Ordinance at any time for conviction of any crime, including any violation of any provision
of this Ordinance by the driver of any taxicab, or whenever the Town shall find after a
hearing that the public good will be promoted by a revocation.

       13.    Penalty: Any person who shall violate any of the provisions of this Ordinance

G.      Use Designation. If the intended or designated use of any particular sewer or drain and
        allowable discharge thereto is unclear, the Director of Public Works will consider the
        pertinent facts and make a determination. Said determination will be final and binding.

H.      Except as hereinafter provided, it shall be unlawful to construct or maintain any privy, privy
        vault, septic tank, cesspool, or other facility intended or used for the disposal of wastewater
        in any area where a public sewer is available, as described in paragraph (I) below. The use
        of portable chemical toilets is allowed at construction sites and for other temporary purposes
        provided the wastes are properly disposed off site.

I.      The owner(s) of all houses, buildings, or properties used for human occupancy,
        employment, recreation, or other purposes, situated within the Town and abutting on any
        street, alley, or right-of-way in which there is now located or may in the future be located a
        sanitary sewer of the Town, is hereby required at the owner(s)' expense to install suitable
        toilet facilities therein, and to connect such facilities directly with the proper public sewer in
        accordance with the provisions of this Ordinance, within ninety (90) days subsequent to the
        date of official notice to do so, provided that said gravity public sewer is within one hundred
        (100) feet of the building.

K.      At such time as a public sewer becomes available to a property serviced by a private
        wastewater disposal system, the owner shall connect to the public sewer, as provided in
        paragraph (I) above unless the private wastewater disposal system was approved after 1985
        as provided in RSA 147:8. Any septic tanks, cesspools, and similar private wastewater
        disposal facilities shall be removed or cleaned of sludge and filled with clean, mineral soils,
        and their use shall be discontinued.

L.      No privy vault, cesspool, sinkhole, septic tank or similar receptacle at any time shall be
        connected with a public sewer.

M.      All sanitary sewage and industrial wastewater from any building, subsequent to connection
        of such building with a public sanitary sewer as required under Paragraph I of this Section,
        shall be subject to limitations and restrictions as shall be established herein or otherwise
        shall be established by the Town, from time to time.

        excavation and connection permits from the Director of Public Works.

B.      There shall be three (3) classes of building sewer permits: (a) for residential and
        commercial service producing only sanitary sewage, (b) for service to establishments
        producing industrial wastewater and (c) for combination of above two classes. For
        residential and commercial services, the owner(s) or his agent shall make application on a
        special form furnished by the Town at least thirty (30) days prior to said service connection.
         For an establishment discharging industrial wastewater, the application shall be made at
        least ninety (90) days prior to said service connection. The building sewer permit
        application shall be supplemented by any plans, specifications, or other information
        (including pollution prevention studies) considered pertinent in the judgment of the Director
        of Public Works. A permit and inspection fee (specific fees are available from the Town as
        Appendix 3 - Sewer Rental Rates and Charges) shall be paid to the Town at the time the
        application is filed.

C.      The Town will, at its expense during construction of a new public sewer, construct a sewer
        stub for a building located on a lot of record (as defined by Section 9.02 of the Town
        Zoning Ordinance) as of June 1, 1979 if such building is located within 100 feet of the
        existing public sewer, and therefore is required to connect to the public sewer as provided in
        Section 2.1(I), above. All costs and expenses incidental to the installation and connection
        of the remainder of the building sewer, including connection to the structures served, shall


Ordinance #14                                   Page 16                     Amended September 13, 2010
        be the responsibility of the owner of the improved property to be connected. If the building
        or proposed building is located beyond 100 feet of the existing public sewer and the owner
        desires to connect to the public sewer then all costs associated with an extension of the
        public sewer to service the building will be the responsibility of the owner. The owner(s)
        shall indemnify the Town from any loss or damage that may directly or indirectly be
        occasioned by the installation of the building sewer. After the initial construction of the
        building sewer, the owner shall thereafter be obligated to pay all costs of expenses of
        operation, repair and maintenance and of reconstruction (if needed) of the entire building
        sewer beginning at the public sewer and ending at the building.

D.      If the owner of any building located within the Town and benefited, improved, served or
        accommodated by any public sewer, or to which any public sewer is available, after 90 days
        notice from the Town, in accordance with Section 2.1(I), shall fail to connect such building
        as required, s/he shall be in violation of this Ordinance and the Town may make such
        connection and may collect from such owner the costs and expenses thereof by such legal
        proceeding as may be permitted by law. The Town shall have full authority to enter on
        owner's property to do whatever is necessary to properly drain the improved property into
        the public sewer.

E.      New developments which require sewer extensions shall be responsible for all cost related
        to sewer extensions required to serve said development including necessary improvements
        to the downstream collection system and the POTW. When sewer is extended to a
        currently unsewered area the developer shall extend sewers to the furthest property corner
        away from the existing sewer on a road of a lot fronting on a Town right-of-way where there
        is either existing developed or potentially developable lot or lots.

F.      A separate and independent building sewer shall be provided for every building. Grouping
        of more than one building on one building sewer shall not be permitted.

G.      Existing building sewers may be used in connection with new buildings only when they are
        found, on examination and test by the Director of Public Works, to meet all requirements of
        this Ordinance. The minimum size for commercial services shall be 6” regardless of the
        condition of the existing service. Commercial services shall only be reused if they are cast
        iron, ductile iron or PVC and found to be in good shape, alignment and of proper size.
        Other pipe types shall only be reused if they are slip-lined with an approved material,
        provide they are found to be in other wise good shape, alignment and of proper size.

H.      The size, slope, alignment, materials of construction of a building sewer, and the methods to
        be used in excavating, placing of the pipe, jointing, testing, and backfilling the trench, shall
        all conform to the Town's Specifications for Sewer Construction (see Appendix 2 -
        Standard Specifications for Sewer Line Construction), the requirements of the building and
        plumbing code or other applicable rules and regulations of the Town. No outside cleanouts
        shall be allowed in any service. One 221/2 deg elbow will be allowed, a second 221/2 deg
        elbow may be allowed with prior approval of the Director of Public Works.

        sewer or building drain that in turn is connected directly or indirectly to a public sanitary
        sewer.

M.      No person shall obstruct the free flow of air through any drain or soil pipe.

N.      The applicant for the building sewer permit shall notify the Director of Public Works when
        the building sewer is ready for inspection and connection to the public sewer. Such notice
        shall be provided not less than 48 hours in advance of the time any connection is to be made
        to any public sewer. The connection and testing shall be made under the supervision of the
        Director of Public Works or his representative. No building sewer or repair thereto shall be
        covered until it has been inspected and approved by the Town. If any part of a building
        sewer is covered before being inspected and approved, it shall be uncovered for inspection
        at the cost and expense of the owner of the building to be connected to a sewer. This
        requirement shall also apply to repairs or alterations to building connections, drains or pipes
        thereto.

O.      Suitable provisions shall be made at the industrial user’s connection for sampling, which
        responsibility shall rest with the holder of the sewer connection permit. Sewer manholes are
        required at the connection of any commercial or industrial establishment and the Town

        sewers and drains under this Ordinance and all repairs and alterations made to building
        connections or drains connected to or discharging into public sewers and drains of the Town
        or intended to so discharge. All persons concerned shall assist the Director of Public Works
        in securing data needed for such records.


Ordinance #14                                   Page 18                      Amended September 13, 2010
Q.      All excavations for building sewer installation shall be adequately guarded with barricades
        and lights so as to protect the public from hazard. Streets, sidewalks, parkways, and other
        public property disturbed in the course of the work shall be restored in a manner satisfactory
        to the Town at the expense of the owner. No excavations within the traveled portion of any
        road shall remain open overnight. All excavations within the traveled portion of any
        pavement shall be patched with new asphalt, cold patch or steel plate as approved by the
        Director of Public Works at the end of each day.

R.      Under RSA 485 and 485-A, proposed new discharges from residential or commercial
        sources in excess of 5000 gpd and which serve more than one building or which require a
        manhole at the connection and for any proposed pumping station which serves more than
        one building or has a capacity in excess of 50 gallons per minute require a NHDES Sewer
        Connection Permit. Applications need not be submitted for domestic connections less than
        5000 gpd provided that no new sewerage construction is proposed.

S.      If the Owner of any building located within the Town shall fail or refuse, upon receipt of a
        notice of the Town, in writing, to remedy any unsatisfactory condition with respect to a
        building sewer, within 45 days of receipt of such notice (except that in the case of dire
        emergency this time period may be reduced as necessary to protect the health and safety of
        the residents of the Town), the Town may remedy any unsatisfactory condition with respect
        to a building sewer and may collect from the Owner the costs and expenses thereof by such
        legal proceedings as may be provided by law. The Town shall have full authority, as
        allowed by law, to enter on the Owner's property to do whatever is necessary to remedy the
        unsatisfactory condition.

T.      Every building sewer shall be maintained in a sanitary and safe operating condition by the
        owner.

U.      When a building is demolished and not immediately replaced, the owner, having first
        obtained a building demolition permit, shall adequately seal off his building sewer where it
        connects to the public sewer.

V.      Where the owner intends to excavate within or otherwise disturb public property, the owner
        shall follow all directions of the Director of Public Works and shall promptly and safely and
        at the owner's own expense, complete the action and restore the public property in a manner
        satisfactory to the Town.

W.      Garbage Grinding or shredding devices are prohibited by this Ordinance and shall not be
        connected to any sanitary sewer.

2.3     Variances

A.      The Director of Public Works, with the approval of the Town Manager, may allow
        reasonable variances from the provisions of Sections 2.1 and 2.2 of this Ordinance, which
        will not result in a violation of State or federal law, provided:



Ordinance #14                                  Page 19                      Amended September 13, 2010
        1.      The owner shall be responsible for any administration fee, to be determined by the
                Board of Selectmen;

        2.      The variance allowed is the least variance reasonable;

        3.      The variance will not cause undue harm or inconvenience to the Town, the POTW, or
                the Owner's neighbors;

        4.      The variance is justified by substantial reason; and

        5.      The variance is at the discretion of the Director of Public Works.

B.      The Owner shall apply for the variance in writing to the Director of Public Works. The
        application shall identify the name and address of the Owner, the property in question, the
        specific variance sought by the Owner and a substantial reason justifying the variance. The
        variance fee shall be paid with the application or the variance shall be deemed to have been
        denied. The variance as issued shall identify any changes, limitations or restrictions on the
        variance as applied for.

2.4     Prohibited Discharge Standards

A.      General Prohibitions. No user shall introduce or cause to be introduced into the POTW any
        pollutant or wastewater that causes pass through or interference. These general prohibitions
        apply to all users of the POTW whether or not they are subject to categorical pretreatment
        standards or any other federal, State, or local pretreatment standards or requirements.

B.      Specific Prohibitions. No user shall introduce or cause to be introduced into the POTW the
        following pollutants, substances, or wastewater:

                other substances present in sewers, including, but not limited to, waste streams with a
                closed-cup flashpoint of less than 140°F (60°C) using the test methods specified in 40
                CFR 261.21;

        2.      Any waters or wastewaters having a pH less than 5.5 or greater than 11.5 or having
                any other corrosive property that may be capable of causing damage or hazard to
                structures, equipment, and/or personnel of the sewage works, or with acidity or
                alkalinity in such quantities that the Town believes may cause, alone or in
                combination with other discharges, interference, pass-through or the Water
                Reclamation Facility’s influent pH to be less than 6.0 or greater than 9.0;

        3.      Solid or viscous substances including water or wastes containing fats, wax, grease, or

Ordinance #14                                     Page 20                     Amended September 13, 2010
                Fahrenheit (0-65 degrees C), in amounts that will cause obstruction of the flow in the
                POTW or result in interference with the proper operation of the POTW;

        4.      Any wastes, including oxygen-demanding released in a discharge at a flow rate and/or
                pollutant concentration that, either singly or by interaction with other pollutants, will
                cause interference with the POTW, constitute a hazard to humans or animals, create a
                public nuisance, exceed any national categorical pretreatment standards or cause pass
                through;

        5.      Wastewater having a temperature greater than 150ºF (65ºC), or that will inhibit
                biological activity or damage pipes or structures; In no case shall wastewater cause the
                temperature of the waste stream entering the wastewater treatment facility to exceed
                104ºF (40ºC);

        6.      Petroleum oil, non-biodegradable cutting oil, or products of mineral oil will cause
                interference or pass through or exceed the levels from Appendix 1 of this Ordinance;

        7.      Pollutants which result in the presence of toxic gases, vapors, or fumes within the
                POTW in a quantity that may cause acute worker health and safety problems;

        8.      Trucked or hauled pollutants, except at discharge points designated by the Director of
                Public Works in accordance with Section 4.9 of this Ordinance;

        9.      Hazardous wastes including but not limited to paints, stains, thinners, pesticides,
                herbicides, anti-freeze, transmission and brake fluids, motor oil and battery acid, or
                any hazardous wastes listed under NHDES Env-Wm 400;

        10.     Any medical/infectious waste, pharmaceutical waste, or radiological waste except as
                specifically authorized in an IDP;

        11.     Any wastewater that would prevent the beneficial use of sludge as defined by NHDES
                Env. Ws 802.05; and

        12. Wastewater causing, alone or in conjunction with other sources, the Water
            Reclamation Facility's effluent to fail a toxicity test.

C.      Additional Prohibitions. No user shall introduce or cause to be introduced into the POTW
        the following substances, pollutants or wastewater, unless specifically authorized by the
        Director of Public Works in an IDP:

        1.      Wastewater that imparts color that may not be removed by the treatment process, such
                as, but not limited to, dye wastes and vegetable tanning solutions, which consequently
                may impart color to the treatment facility's effluent, thereby violating the Town's
                NPDES permit;




Ordinance #14                                     Page 21                     Amended September 13, 2010
        2.      Noxious or malodorous liquids, gases, solids, or other wastewater that, either singly or
                by interaction with other wastes, are sufficient to create a public nuisance or a hazard
                to life, or to prevent entry into the public sewers for maintenance or repair;

        3.      Wastewater containing any radioactive wastes or isotopes except in compliance with
                applicable State or federal regulations;

        4.      Storm water, surface water, groundwater, artesian well water, roof runoff, subsurface
                drainage, swimming pool drainage, condensate, deionized water, non-contact cooling
                water, or otherwise unpolluted wastewater;

        5.      Sludges, screenings, or other residues from the pretreatment of industrial wastewater;

        6.      Wastewater causing, alone or in conjunction with other sources, the wastewater
                treatment facility's effluent to fail a toxicity test;

        7.      Detergents, surface-active agents, or other substances that may cause excessive
                foaming in the POTW;

        8.      Wastewater causing a reading on an explosion hazard meter at the point of discharge
                into the POTW, or at any point in the POTW, of more than 10 percent (10%) of the
                Lower Explosive Limit of the meter;

        9.      Any quantities of flow, concentrations, or both which constitute a "slug" as defined
                herein;

       10.      Waters or wastes which, by interaction with other water or wastes in the treatment
                works, release dangerous or noxious gases, form suspended solids which affect the
                operation of the collection system, or create a condition deleterious to structures and
                treatment processes; and

       11.      Any materials which exert or cause unusual concentrations of inert suspended solids
                (such as, but not limited to, Fullers earth, lime, slurries, and lime residues) or of
                dissolved solids (such as, but not limited to, sodium chloride and sodium sulfate).

Pollutants, substances, or wastewater prohibited by this section shall not be processed or stored in
such a manner that they could be discharged to the POTW.

2.5     Federal Categorical Pretreatment Standards

A.      The federal categorical pretreatment standards are found at 40 CFR Chapter I, Subchapter
        N, Parts 405-471.

B.      EPA shall be the control authority for industrial users subject to federal categorical
        pretreatment standards. As the control authority, industrial users are responsible to the EPA
        for compliance with categorical pretreatment standards and the requirements of 40 CFR


Ordinance #14                                    Page 22                      Amended September 13, 2010
        Part 403. Categorical industrial users shall provide the Town with copies of any reports to,
        or correspondence with EPA relative to compliance with the categorical pretreatment
        standards.

C.      The industrial user is responsible to determine the applicability of categorical pretreatment
        standards. The user may request that EPA provide written certification on whether the user
        is subject to the requirements of a particular category.

2.6     Local Discharge Restrictions

A.      All persons discharging industrial process wastes into public or private sewers connected to
        the Town's POTW shall comply with applicable federal requirements and State standards
        for pretreatment of wastes (as amended) in addition to the requirements of this Ordinance.

B.      Local numerical discharge limitations established by the Town, and all State, and Federal
        pretreatment standards shall apply, whichever is most stringent. Fume toxicity, explosivity,
        and ignitability screening levels will be enforced for the protection of personnel or sewer
        structures.

C.      Pollutants of concern are those for which regulatory controls will be administered by the
        Town of Hanover. These include pollutants that might reasonably be expected to be
        discharged to the POTW in quantities that may pass through or interfere with the POTW,
        contaminate the sludge, or adversely impact worker health or safety. The Town has
        calculated allowable headworks loading limits for all metals for which there are
        applicable restrictions placed on the POTW.

D.      If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the POTW that
        exceed the standards or restrictions established in Sections 2.4, 2.5, 2.6 and Appendix 1 of
        this Ordinance, which in the judgment of the Director of Public Works may have a
        deleterious effect upon the POTW, processes, equipment, or receiving waters, or that
        otherwise create a hazard to worker safety or health, or constitute a public nuisance, the
        Director of Public Works may:

        1.      Reject or prevent any discharge to the POTW after notice has been served to the
                discharger. The discharger shall respond within 15 days with a corrective action plan;

        2.      Require pretreatment prior to discharge to the POTW (see Section 3);

        3.      Require control (e.g., equalization) over the quantities and rates of discharge; and/or

        4.      Require payment to cover additional cost of handling and treating the wastes.

E.      If the Director of Public Works allows the pretreatment or equalization of waste flows, the
        design and installation of the systems and equipment shall be subject to the review and
        approval of the Director of Public Works and the State (see Section 3).



Ordinance #14                                     Page 23                      Amended September 13, 2010
F.      Maximum Allowable Industrial Loadings. (Headworks Loading Limits) (Appendix 1.1)

           1.   For all industrial users connected to sewer lines that are tributary to the Town of
                Hanover POTW, the Public Works Department will not issue permits, which in
                combination with other industrial loads, exceed the values in Appendix 1.1.

           2.   All mass loading limitations for metals represent total metals, regardless of the
                valance state, or the physical or chemical form of the metal. To administer these
                allowable loadings through IDPs, the Public Works Department may impose
                concentration-based limitations, mass limitations, or both. For industrial users, the
                values written into IDPs for the above pollutants shall control the industrial waste
                stream and may be adjusted to account for dilution with non-industrial wastewaters.

           3.   Unless specifically identified in an IDP, an industrial user is not allowed to
                discharge the locally limited pollutants at concentrations greater than normal
                sanitary wastewater (i.e., background concentrations). Authorization for discharge
                may be granted subject to the Public Works Department’s administrative
                procedures for managing mass loading limitations.

           4.   Daily concentration (or mass loading) is the concentration (or mass) of a pollutant
                discharged, determined from the analysis of a flow-composited sample (or other
                sampling procedure approved by the Public Works Department) representative of
                the discharge over the duration of a 24-hour day or industrial operating schedule
                of less than 24 hours.

G.      Screening Levels. (Appendix 1.2)

           1.   Screening levels are numerical values above which actions are initiated to
                evaluate, prevent or reduce potential adverse impacts on the POTW, the
                environment, and/or human health and safety. Screening levels are developed as
                needed using the methodology of the Public Works Department. The pollutants in
                Appendix 1.2 (list is not all inclusive) are representative of concentrations above
                which pollutants shall not be discharged to the POTW without approval of the
                Public Works Department.

           2.   If any of the screening levels are exceeded, repeat analysis may be required by the
                Public Works Department to verify compliance or noncompliance with that
                screening level. If noncompliance is indicated, then the industrial user may be
                required, at the discretion of the Public Works Department, to conduct an
                appropriate engineering evaluation at the industrial user’s expense to determine
                the potential impact of the discharge of this pollutant to the POTW or
                alternatively, to develop a Pollution Prevention Plan or Best Management
                Practices Plan specifically addressing the pollutant that exceeds the screening
                level. This study or plan shall be approved by and conducted under the
                supervision of the Public Works Department and in accordance with section 3.4 of



Ordinance #14                                  Page 24                     Amended September 13, 2010
                this Ordinance. Should the evaluation indicate the impact to be unsatisfactory, the
                industrial user shall reduce the pollutant concentration to a satisfactory level.

           3.   If an industrial user proposes to discharge at concentrations greater than the
                concentration-based screening level maintained by the Public Works Department,
                then the industrial user may be required to conduct the evaluations described in
                the previous paragraph. Should the evaluations support an alternate site-specific
                limitation, then the screening level may, at the discretion of the Public Works
                Department, be adjusted as a special agreement for the industrial user and
                administered as a permit limitation for the specific discharge.

           4.   For industrial discharge applications, conservative pollutant screening levels shall
                apply at the end of the process train prior to dilution with non-industrial wastewater.
                Conservative pollutant screening levels contained in IDPs may be adjusted to
                account for combined sanitary and industrial wastewater present at the point of
                sampling.

H.      Best Management Practices.

           1.   The Director of Public Works may develop Best Management Practices (BMPs),
                by ordinance or in IDPs, or require that an industrial user develop BMPs, to
                implement Local Limits and the requirements of this Ordinance.

           2.   Such BMPS shall be considered local limits and Pretreatment Standards for the
                purposes of this Ordinance.

I.      Special Agreements. No statement contained in this Section except for paragraphs 2.4(A),
        2.4(B), and 2.5 shall be construed as preventing any special agreement or arrangement
        between the Town and any industrial user whereby an industrial waste of unusual strength
        or character may be accepted by the Town for treatment provided that said agreements do
        not contravene any requirements of existing federal or State laws, and/or regulations
        promulgated there under, are compatible with any user charge system in effect, and do not
        waive applicable federal categorical pretreatment standards. Special agreement requests
        may require submittal of a BMP Plan that specifically addresses the discharge for which a
        special agreement is requested.

2.7     Town’s Right of Revision

The discharge standards and requirements set forth in Sections 2.4 (PROHIBITED DISCHARGE
STANDARDS), 2.5 (FEDERAL CATEGORICAL PRE-TREATMENT STANDARDS) and 2.6
(LOCAL DISCHARGE RESTRICTIONS), are established for the purpose of preventing
discharges to the POTW that would harm either the public sewers, wastewater treatment process, or
equipment; would have an adverse effect on the receiving stream; or would otherwise endanger
lives, limb, public property, or constitute a nuisance.




Ordinance #14                                   Page 25                     Amended September 13, 2010
To meet these objectives, the Director of Public Works may, from time to time, review and set
more stringent standards or requirements than those established in Sections 2.4 (PROHIBITED
DISCHARGE STANDARDS), 2.5 (FEDERAL CATEGORICAL PRE-TREATMENT
STANDARDS) and 2.6 (LOCAL DISCHARGE RESTRICTIONS) if, in his opinion, such more
stringent standards or requirements are necessary to meet the above objectives. At a minimum, this
review will be performed at least once every five years. In forming his opinion, the Director of
Public Works may give consideration to such factors as the quantity of waste in relation to flows
and velocities in the sewers, materials of construction of the sewers, the wastewater treatment
process employed, capacity of the wastewater treatment facility, degree of treatability at the
wastewater treatment facility, pollution prevention activities, and other pertinent factors. The
limitations or restrictions on materials or characteristics of waste or wastewaters discharged to the
sanitary sewer shall not be exceeded without the approval of the Director of Public Works.

The Director of Public Works shall allow affected industrial users reasonable time to comply with
any changes to the local limits. The conditions and schedule for compliance shall accompany the
written notification of any amended screening levels or limitations of this Ordinance.

2.8     Dilution

No user shall ever increase the use of process water, or in any way attempt to dilute a discharge, as
a partial or complete substitute for adequate treatment to achieve compliance with a discharge
limitation unless expressly authorized by an applicable pretreatment standard or requirement. The
Director of Public Works may impose mass limitations on users who are using dilution to meet
applicable pretreatment standards or requirements or in other cases when the imposition of mass
limitations is appropriate.

2.9     Mass-Based Limitations

Users implementing process changes may request that compliance be determined based on mass
limitations in lieu of concentration limitations. Such mass-based limitations will be calculated from
the permitted concentration-based limitations and flows, and shall be equivalent to or less than the
mass discharge in effect at the time of the request. The intent of a mass-based limit is to encourage
and allow pollution prevention and/or water conservation measures that might cause a facility to
increase pollutant concentrations in their discharge even though the total mass of the pollutant
discharged does not increase, and may in fact decrease. Decisions on granting requests for mass-
based compliance limitations will be based on user-specific information and current operating
conditions of the POTW, and will be at the discretion of the Director of Public Works.
Implementation of mass-based limitations may not contravene any requirements of federal or State
laws and/or regulations implemented there under, and may not waive applicable federal categorical
pretreatment standards.

SECTION 3 - PRETREATMENT OF WASTEWATER

3.1     Pretreatment Facilities

Users shall provide wastewater treatment as necessary to comply with this Ordinance and shall
achieve compliance with all pretreatment standards, screening levels, and the prohibitions set out in
Sections 2.4, 2.5, and 2.6 of this Ordinance within the time limitations specified by EPA, the State,
or the Director of Public Works, whichever is more stringent. All facilities required to achieve and
maintain compliance shall be provided, operated, and maintained at the user's expense. When
required, facilities shall be operated by an operator licensed by the State of New Hampshire.
Detailed plans describing such facilities and operating procedures shall be submitted to the Director
of Public Works for review, and shall be acceptable to the Director of Public Works and the
NHDES before such facilities are constructed. Such facilities shall not be connected until said
approval is obtained in writing. The review of such plans and operating procedures shall in no way
relieve the user of the responsibility of modifying such facilities as necessary to produce a discharge
acceptable to the Town under the provisions of this Ordinance. Plans and specifications for a
proposed pretreatment facility shall be the result of the design of a professional engineer.

3.2     Additional Pretreatment Measures

A.      Whenever deemed necessary, the Director of Public Works may require users to restrict
        their discharge during peak flow periods, designate that certain wastewater be discharged
        only into specific sewers, relocate and/or consolidate points of discharge, separate sanitary
        sewage from industrial wastewaters, and such other conditions as may be necessary to
        protect the POTW and determine the user's compliance with the requirements of this
        Ordinance.

B.      The Director of Public Works may require any person discharging into the POTW to install
        and maintain, on their property and at their expense, a suitable storage and flow-control
        facility to ensure equalization of flow. An IDP may be issued solely for flow equalization.

C.      Grease, oil and sand interceptors shall be provided at the owner's expense when, in the
        opinion of the Director of Public Works they are necessary for wastewater discharges to
        meet the limitations of this Ordinance. Fat, Oil & Grease interceptors shall be required for
        all establishments listed in Appendix 5 of this Ordinance. All interception units shall be of
        a type and capacity approved by the Director of Public Works and shall be so located as to
        be easily accessible for cleaning and inspection by the owner and the Town. Maintenance
        of these interceptors requires that the owner be responsible for the proper removal and
        disposal by appropriate means of the captured materials and shall maintain records of the
        dates and means of disposal, which shall be subject to periodic review by the Director of
        Public Works. Reports shall be submitted at the discretion of the Director of Public Works
        indicating all maintenance and cleaning activities.

D.      Users with the potential to discharge flammable substances shall construct containment
        facilities which will prevent a discharge to the POTW. Users may be required to install and



Ordinance #14                                   Page 27                     Amended September 13, 2010
        maintain a combustible gas detection meter at the discretion of the Director of Public
        Works.

E.      Where pretreatment or flow equalizing facilities are provided or required for any waters or
        wastes, these devices shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective
        operation by the owner at his expense.

F.      The owner of any building serviced by a building sewer carrying industrial wastewater shall
        install a suitable control manhole together with such necessary meters and other
        appurtenances in the building sewer to facilitate observation, sampling and measurement of
        the wastes. Such manhole shall be accessibly and safely located and shall be constructed in
        accordance with plans approved by the Town. The manhole shall be installed by the owner
        at his expense and shall be maintained by him so as to be safe and accessible at all times.
        The owner shall perform such monitoring as the Town may reasonably require including
        installation, use and maintenance of monitoring equipment, keeping records and reporting
        the results of such monitoring to the Town. Such records shall be made available upon
        request of the Town. The Director of Public Works may allow alternate observation,
        sampling and measurement location if, in his opinion, an access manhole may be unsafe.
        Alternate access point shall be submitted to the Director of Public Works for approval.

3.3     Accidental Discharge/Slug Control Plans

Each user shall provide protection from accidental discharge of prohibited materials or their
wastes regulated by this Ordinance. Facilities to prevent accidental discharge of prohibited
materials shall be provided and maintained at the user’s expense.

The Director of Public Works will evaluate all Significant Industrial Users at least once for the need
for a slug control plan and conduct follow up evaluations as needed for all other users during
routine inspections and permitting.

The Director of Public Works may require any user to develop, submit for approval, and implement
an accidental discharge/slug control plan. Alternatively, the Director of Public Works may develop
and require the implementation of a Slug Control Plan as part of an enforcement action or permit
revision for any user. An accidental discharge/slug control plan shall address, at a minimum, the
following:

A.      Description of discharge practices, including nonroutine batch discharges;

B.      Description of stored chemicals and MSDS sheets;

C.      Procedures for immediately notifying the Director of Public Works of any accidental or slug
        discharge, as required by Section 6.3 and 6.6 of this Ordinance; and

D.      Procedures to prevent adverse impact from any accidental or slug discharge. Such
        procedures include, but are not limited to, inspection and maintenance of storage areas,
        handling and transfer of materials, loading and unloading operations, control of plant site


Ordinance #14                                  Page 28                      Amended September 13, 2010
        runoff, worker training, building of containment structures or equipment, measures for
        containing toxic pollutants, including solvents, and/or measures and equipment for
        emergency response.

3.4     Best Management Practices (BMP) Plans

In accordance with the provisions of Sections 2.6, and 10.3 of this Ordinance, the Director of Public
Works may require any person discharging wastes into the POTW to develop and implement, at
their own expense, a BMP Plan (also referenced as a pollution prevention plan). The Director of
Public Works may require users to submit as part of the BMP Plan information that demonstrates
adherence to the following elements:

A.      Management Support. For changes to be effective, the visible support of top management
        is required. Management's support should be explicitly stated and include designation of a
        pollution prevention coordinator, goals, and time frames for reductions in volume and
        toxicity of waste streams, and procedures for employee training and involvement.

B.      Process Characterization. A detailed process waste diagram shall be developed that
        identifies and characterizes the input of raw materials, the outflow of products, and the
        generation of wastes.

C.      Waste Assessment. Estimates shall be developed for the amount of wastes generated by
        each process. This may include establishing and maintaining waste accounting systems to
        track sources, the rates and dates of generation, and the presence of hazardous constituents.

D.      Analysis of Waste Management Economics. Waste management economic returns shall be
        determined based on the consideration of:

        1.      Reduced raw material purchases;

        2.      Avoidance of waste treatment, monitoring and disposal costs;

        3.      Reductions in operations and maintenance expenses;

        4.      Elimination of permitting fees and compliance costs; and

        5.      Reduced liabilities for employee/public exposure to hazardous chemicals and cleanup
                of waste disposal sites.

E.      Development of BMP Alternatives. Current and past pollution prevention activities should
        be assessed, including estimates of the reduction in the amount and toxicity of waste
        achieved by the identified actions. Opportunities for pollution prevention must then be
        assessed for identified processes where raw materials become or generate wastes. Technical
        information on pollution prevention should be solicited and exchanged, both from inside the
        organization and out.



Ordinance #14                                     Page 29                  Amended September 13, 2010
F.      Evaluation and Implementation. Technically and economically feasible pollution prevention
        opportunities shall be identified and an implementation timetable with interim and final
        milestones shall be developed. The recommendations that are implemented shall be
        periodically reviewed for effectiveness.

G.      Recordkeeping. Documentation demonstrating implementation or compliance with
        BMPs shall be created, retained, and made available as required.

The review and approval of such BMP Plans by the Town shall in no way relieve the user from the
responsibilities of modifying their facilities as necessary to produce a discharge acceptable to the
Town in accordance with the provisions of this Ordinance.

SECTION 6 - REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

6.1     Periodic Compliance Reports

A.      All significant industrial users shall, at a frequency determined by the Director of Public
        Works but in no case less than twice per year, submit a report indicating the nature and
        concentration of pollutants in the discharge that are limited by pretreatment standards and
        the measured or estimated average and maximum daily flows for the reporting period. All
        periodic compliance reports must be signed and certified in accordance with Section 4.8 of
        this Ordinance.

B.      All wastewater samples must be representative of the user's discharge. Wastewater
        monitoring and flow measurement facilities shall be properly operated, kept clean and
        orderly, and maintained in good working order at all times. The failure of a user to maintain
        its monitoring facility in satisfactory working condition shall not be grounds for the user to
        claim that sample results are unrepresentative of its discharge.

C.      If a user subject to the reporting requirement in this section monitors any pollutant more
        frequently than required by the Director of Public Works, using the procedures prescribed in
        Sections 6.8 and 6.9 of this Ordinance, the results of this monitoring shall be included in the
        report.




Ordinance #14                                     Page 38                       Amended September 13, 2010
6.2     Reports of Changed Conditions

Each user must notify the Director of Public Works of any planned significant changes to the user's
operations or system that might alter the nature, quality, or volume of its wastewater at least ninety
(90) days before the change.

A.      The Director of Public Works may require the user to submit such information as may be
        deemed necessary to evaluate the changed condition, including the submittal of an IDP
        application under Section 4.4 of this Ordinance.

B.      Upon approval of the request by the Town, an Indirect Discharge Request (IDR) will be
        submitted by the Town to the NHDES on behalf of the user. All applicable NHDES review
        fees shall be provided by the user.

C.      Upon approval of the IDR by the NHDES, the Director of Public Works may issue an IDP
        under Section 5.4 of this Ordinance or modify an existing IDP under Section 5.5 of this
        Ordinance in response to changed conditions or anticipated changed conditions.

D.      For purposes of this requirement, significant changes include, but are not limited to; flow
        increases greater than twenty percent (20%), and the discharge of any previously unreported
        pollutants.

6.3     Reports of Slugs or Potentially Adverse Discharges

A.      In the case of any discharge, including, but not limited to, accidental discharges, discharges
        of a nonroutine, episodic nature, a noncustomary batch discharge, or a slug load, that may
        adversely impact the POTW, the user shall immediately telephone and notify the Director of
        Public Works and the Water Reclamation Facility Superintendent of the incident. This
        notification shall include the location of the discharge, type of waste, concentration and
        volume, if known, and corrective actions conducted by the user.

B.      Within five (5) days following such discharge, the user shall, unless waived by the Director
        of Public Works, submit a detailed written report describing the cause(s) of the discharge
        and the measures to be initiated by the user to prevent similar future occurrences. Such
        notification shall not relieve the user of any expense, loss, damage, or other liability that
        may be incurred as a result of damage to the POTW, natural resources, or any other damage
        to person or property; nor shall such notification relieve the user of any fines, penalties, or
        other liability that may be imposed pursuant to this Ordinance. This report must be signed
        and certified in accordance with Section 4.8 of this Ordinance.

C.       A notice shall be permanently posted on the user's bulletin board or other prominent place
         advising employees who to call in the event of a discharge described in paragraph (A) of
         this Section. Employers shall ensure that all employees, who may cause such a discharge
         to occur, are advised of the emergency notification procedure.




Ordinance #14                                   Page 39                     Amended September 13, 2010
D.       The permittee shall notify the Town immediately of any changes at its facility that may
         affect the potential for a slug discharge. The Town may require the permittee to develop
         or modify a Slug Control Plan or take other actions to control slug discharges.

6.4     Reports from Unpermitted Users

All users not required to obtain an IDP shall provide appropriate reports to the Director of Public
Works as he/she may require.

6.5     Notice of Violation/Repeat Sampling and Reporting

If the results of sampling performed by a user indicate a violation, the user must notify the Director
of Public Works within twenty-four (24) hours of becoming aware of the violation. The user shall
also repeat the sampling and analysis and submit the results of the repeat analysis to the Director of
Public Works within 30 days subsequent to becoming aware of the violation.

6.6     Notice of Violation of this Ordinance

All industrial users shall notify the Director of Public Works within 24 hours of becoming aware of
any violation of this Ordinance and/or their IDP conditions. Immediate notification is required for
any violation of this Ordinance which may cause flammability, chemical reactivity, organic loading,
solids loading, interference, pass through, or worker health and safety impacts within the POTW.

6.7     Best Management Practices Reports

Permitted industrial users when required shall report on Best Management Practices activities
undertaken to reduce or minimize their industrial wastewater discharges. The Town may publicize
these efforts in the annual notification provided for in Section 9.

6.8     Analytical Requirements

All pollutant analyses, including sampling techniques, to be submitted as part of an IDP application
or report shall be performed in accordance with the techniques prescribed in 40 CFR Part 136,
unless otherwise specified in an applicable categorical pretreatment standard. If 40 CFR Part 136
does not contain sampling or analytical techniques for the pollutant in question, sampling and
analyses must be performed in accordance with procedures approved by the Town of Hanover.

6.9     Sample Collection

A.      Except as indicated in paragraph (B) and (C) below, the user must collect wastewater
        samples using flow-proportional composite collection techniques. In the event flow-
        proportional sampling is infeasible, the Director of Public Works may authorize the use of
        time-proportional sampling or a minimum of four (4) grab samples where the user
        demonstrates that this will provide a representative sample of the effluent being discharged.
         In addition, grab samples may be required to demonstrate compliance with instantaneous
        maximum allowable discharge limitations (e.g., screening levels established to protect


Ordinance #14                                  Page 40                      Amended September 13, 2010
        worker health and safety). A single grab sample may also be used in place of a composite
        sample with approval of the Director of Public Works when:

        •   The effluent is not discharged on a continuous basis (i.e., batch discharges of short
            duration), and only when the batch exhibits homogeneous characteristics (i.e.,
            completely mixed) and the pollutant can be safely assumed to be uniformly dispersed;

        •   Sampling a facility where a statistical relationship can be established between previous
            grab samples and composite data; and

        •   The waste conditions are relatively constant (i.e., are completely mixed and
            homogeneous) over the period of the discharge.

B.      Samples for temperature, pH, cyanide, oil & grease, phenols, sulfides, volatile organic
        compounds and all other pollutants as specified by 40 CFR Part 136 must be obtained using
        grab collection techniques.

C.      Using protocols (including appropriate preservation) specified in 40 CFR Part 136 and
        appropriate EPA guidance, multiple grab samples collected during a 24-hour period may
        be composited prior to the analysis as follows: for cyanide, total phenols, and sulfides the
        samples may be composited in the laboratory or in the field; for volatile organics and oil
        and grease, the samples may be composited in the laboratory.

6.10    Timing

Written reports will be deemed to have been submitted on the date postmarked. For reports that are
not mailed, postage prepaid, into a mail facility serviced by the United States Postal Service, the
date of receipt of the report shall govern.

6.11    Recordkeeping

Users subject to the reporting requirements of this Ordinance shall retain, and make available for
inspection and copying, all records of information obtained pursuant to any monitoring activities,
including documentation associated with Best Management Practices, required by this Ordinance
or IDP and any additional records of information obtained pursuant to monitoring activities
undertaken by the user independent of such requirements. Records shall include the date, exact
location, method, and time of sampling, and the name of the person(s) obtaining the samples; chain
of custody; the dates analyses were performed; who performed the analyses; the analytical
techniques or methods used; and the results of such analyses. These records shall remain available
for a period of at least five (5) years. This period shall be automatically extended for the duration of
any litigation concerning the user or the Town, or where the user has been specifically notified of a
longer retention period by the Director of Public Works.




Ordinance #14                                   Page 41                      Amended September 13, 2010
SECTION 7 - POWERS AND AUTHORITIES OF INSPECTORS

7.1     Compliance Monitoring

The Director of Public Works shall investigate instances of noncompliance with the industrial
pretreatment standards and requirements. The Director of Public Works shall, as necessary, sample
and analyze the wastewater discharges of contributing users and conduct surveillance and
inspection activities to identify, independently of information supplied by such users, occasional
and continuing noncompliance with industrial pretreatment standards. Each industrial user will be
billed directly for costs incurred for sampling and analysis of its wastewater.

7.2     Right of Entry: Inspection and Sampling

All industrial users discharging to the Town's POTW shall allow unrestricted access by Town, State
and EPA personnel for the purpose of determining whether the user is complying with all
requirements of this Ordinance, and any IDP or order issued hereunder. Users shall allow the
Director of Public Works and other duly authorized employees of the Town bearing proper
credentials and identification ready access to all parts of the premises for the purposes of inspection,
sampling, records examination and copying, and the performance of any additional duties.

A.      Where a user has security measures in force that require proper identification and clearance
        before entry into its premises, the user shall make necessary arrangements with its security
        guards so that, upon presentation of suitable identification, the Director of Public Works or
        other duly authorized employee(s) will be permitted to enter without delay for the purposes
        of performing specific responsibilities.

B.      The Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee(s) shall have the right to
        set up on the user's property, or require installation of, such devices as are necessary to
        conduct sampling and/or metering of the user's operations.

C.      The Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee(s) may require the user to
        install monitoring equipment as necessary. The facility's sampling and monitoring
        equipment shall be maintained at all times in a safe and proper operating condition by the
        user at its own expense. All devices used to measure wastewater flow and quality shall be
        calibrated at least annually to ensure their accuracy.

D.      Any temporary or permanent obstruction to safe and easy access to the facility to be
        inspected and/or sampled shall be promptly removed by the user at the written or verbal
        request of the Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee(s) and shall not
        be replaced. The costs of clearing such access shall be borne by the user.

E.      Unreasonable delays in allowing the Director of Public Works or other duly authorized
        employee(s) access to the user's premises shall be a violation of this Ordinance.

F.      The Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee(s) is authorized to obtain
        information concerning industrial processes that have a bearing on the kind or source of


Ordinance #14                                   Page 42                      Amended September 13, 2010
        discharge to the public sewer. Such information may be treated as confidential if the
        industrial user satisfies the requirements of Section 8.1 of this Ordinance. However,
        information regarding wastewater discharged by the user (flow, sources, constituents,
        concentrations, and characteristics) shall be available to the public without restriction.

G.      The Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee(s) of the Town bearing
        proper credentials and identification shall be permitted to enter all private properties
        through which the Town holds a duly negotiated easement for the purposes of, but not
        limited to, inspection, observation, measurement, sampling, repair, and maintenance of any
        portion of the POTW lying within said easement. All entry and subsequent work, if any, on
        said easement, shall be done in full accordance with the terms of the duly negotiated
        easement pertaining to the private property involved.

7.3     Administrative Inspection Warrants

If the Director of Public Works or other duly authorized employee has been refused access to a
property where (a) probable cause exists to believe that a violation of this Ordinance exists; or (b)
there is a need to conduct a routine inspection or to perform testing or sampling designed to verify
compliance with this Ordinance or with any permit or order issued hereunder, the Director or
Director’s designee may seek an administrative inspection warrant pursuant to the provisions of
RSA Chapter 595-B.


SECTION 8 - CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION/PUBLIC PARTICIPATION

8.1     Confidential Information

Information and data on a user obtained from reports, surveys, IDP Applications, IDPs, monitoring
programs, and from the Director of Public Works inspection and sampling activities, shall be
available to the public without restriction, unless the user specifically requests, in writing, and is
able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works, that the release of such
information would divulge information, processes, or methods of production entitled to protection
as trade secrets under applicable State and Federal law. INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO
RSA 91-A:5 (EXEMPTIONS UNDER THE RIGHT TO KNOW LAW). Any such request must be
asserted, in writing, at the time of submittal of the information or data. When requested and
demonstrated by the user furnishing a report that such information should be held confidential, the
portions of a report identified by the user which might disclose trade secrets or secret processes
shall not be made available for inspection by the public, but shall be made available immediately
upon request to governmental agencies for uses related to the NPDES program or pretreatment
program, and in enforcement proceedings involving the person providing the report. Wastewater
constituents and characteristics and other “effluent data” as defined by 40 CFR 2.302 will not be
recognized as confidential information and will be available to the public without restriction.




Ordinance #14                                  Page 43                      Amended September 13, 2010
8.2     Public Participation

The Town shall comply with the public participation requirements of 40 CFR Part 25 in the
administration of industrial pretreatment standards and requirements.


SECTION 9 - PUBLICATION OF POLLUTION PREVENTION ACHIEVEMENTS

The Director of Public Works may publish annually, in the largest daily newspaper, circulated in
the Municipality where the POTW is located, a list of users whom during the previous twelve (12)
months, demonstrated a commitment to reducing the volume and toxicity of waste discharges. All
pollution prevention efforts, not just those that affect wastewater discharges, are subject to
recognition. The following criteria may be used to identify published users:

A.      Innovative ideas the facility has used to implement process changes that eliminate or reduce
        the volume or toxicity of waste generated;

B.      The percentage of the facility's process water reused within the system or process;

C.      The percentage of the facility's potential waste reused within the system or process;

D.      Implementation of employee pollution prevention training and communication programs;

E.      Voluntary performance of pollution prevention audits;

F.      Spill control procedures/devices (e.g., secondary containment) the facility initiates to
        prevent accidental chemical spills from entering the POTW; and

G.      The environmental and/or economic benefits or successes derived from implementing
        pollution prevention methods.

The intent of the publication is to notify local consumers of the environmental responsiveness of
local businesses, and to encourage industrial users to identify and implement opportunities for
preventing pollution. As part of this publication, the Town may provide an evaluation of the impact
of these changes to the POTW, and summarize the current status of pollutant loadings to the POTW
and goals established by the POTW for pollution prevention efforts.


SECTION 10 - ENFORCEMENT REMEDIES

10.1    Notification of Violation

When the Director of Public Works determines that a user has violated, or continues to violate, any
provision of this Ordinance, an IDP or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or
requirement, the Director of Public Works may serve upon that user a Notice of Violation. Within
the time period specified in the violation notice, an explanation of the violation and a plan for the


Ordinance #14                                  Page 44                      Amended September 13, 2010
satisfactory correction and prevention thereof, to include specific required actions, shall be
submitted by the user to the Director of Public Works. Submittal of this plan in no way relieves the
user of liability for any violations occurring before or subsequent to receipt of the Notice of
Violation. Nothing in this section shall limit the authority of the Director of Public Works to take
any action, including emergency actions or any other enforcement action, without initially issuing a
Notice of Violation.

10.2    Compliance Schedule Development

The Director of Public Works may require any user that has violated, or continues to violate, any
provision of this Ordinance, an IDP or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or
requirement, to develop a compliance schedule. A compliance schedule pursuant to this section
shall comply with the following conditions:

A.      The schedule shall contain progress increments in the form of dates for the commencement
        and completion of major events leading to the construction and operation of additional
        pretreatment required for the user to meet the applicable pretreatment standards (such
        events include, but are not limited to, retaining an engineer, completing preliminary and
        final design plans, executing contracts for major components, commencing and completing
        construction, and beginning and conducting routine operation);

B.      No increment referred to above shall exceed nine (9) months;

C.      The user shall submit a progress report to the Director of Public Works no later than
        fourteen (14) days following each date in the schedule and the final date of compliance
        including, as a minimum, whether or not it complied with the increment of progress, the
        reason for any delay, and, if appropriate, the action being taken by the user to return to the
        established schedule; and

D.      In no event shall more than nine (9) months elapse between such progress reports to the
        Director of Public Works.

10.3    Best Management Practices Plan Development

The Director of Public Works may require any user that has violated or continues to violate any
provision of this Ordinance, an IDP, or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard
or requirement, to develop a Best Management Practices Plan (also referenced as a pollution
prevention plan) in accordance with Section 3.4 of this Ordinance. The plan must specifically
address violation(s) for which this action was undertaken. The plan shall be developed using good
engineering judgment and shall be submitted to the Director of Public Works no later than sixty
(60) days after the user was notified of this requirement.

10.4    Show Cause Orders

The Director of Public Works may order a user that has violated, or continues to violate, any
provision of this Ordinance, an IDP or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or


Ordinance #14                                  Page 45                      Amended September 13, 2010
requirement, to appear before the Board of Selectmen and show cause why the proposed
enforcement action should not be taken. Notice shall be served on the user specifying the time and
place for the meeting, the proposed enforcement action, the reasons for such action, and a request
that the user show cause why the proposed enforcement action should not be taken. The notice of
the meeting shall be served personally or by registered or certified mail (return receipt requested) at
least ten (10) days prior to the hearing. Such notice may be served on any authorized representative
of the user. A show cause hearing shall not be a bar against, or prerequisite for, executing any other
action against the user.

10.5    Industrial Wastewater Discharge Permit Termination

Any industrial user, who violates the following conditions of this Ordinance or an IDP or order, or
any applicable State or federal law, is subject to permit termination:

A.      Failure to notify the Director of Public Works of significant changes to the wastewater prior
        to the changed discharge;

B.      Failure to provide prior notification to the Director of Public Works of changed conditions
        pursuant to Section 6.2 of this Ordinance;

C.      Misrepresentation or failure to fully disclose all relevant facts in the IDP application;

D.      Falsifying self-monitoring reports;

E.      Tampering with monitoring equipment;

F.      Refusing to allow the Director of Public Works timely access to the facility premises and
        records;

G.      Failure to meet effluent limitations;

H.      Failure to pay fines;

I.      Failure to pay sewer rental charges or surcharges;

J.      Failure to meet compliance schedules;

K.      Failure to complete a wastewater survey or the IDP application;

L.      Failure to provide advance notice of the transfer of business ownership of a permitted
        facility;

M.      Violation of any pretreatment standard or requirement, or any terms of the IDP or this
        Ordinance; or




Ordinance #14                                   Page 46                       Amended September 13, 2010
N.      IDPs shall be voided upon cessation of operations or transfer of business ownership (except
        for as allowed in section 5.6). All IDPs issued to a particular user are void upon the
        issuance of a new IDP to that user.

10.6    Termination of Discharge

Any user who violates a Section 10.5 criterion, or fails to cease and desist from any discharge of
wastewater upon termination of their IDP for that discharge, is subject to discharge termination.

Such user will be notified of the proposed termination of its discharge and be offered an opportunity
to show cause under Section 10.4 of this Ordinance why the proposed action should not be taken.
Exercise of this option by the Director of Public Works shall not be a bar to, or a prerequisite for,
taking any other action against the user.

10.7    Emergency Suspensions

The Director of Public Works may immediately suspend a user's wastewater discharge, subsequent
to informal notice to the user, whenever such suspension is necessary to terminate an actual or
threatened discharge that reasonably appears to present or cause an imminent or substantial
endangerment to the health or welfare of POTW personnel or the public. The Director of Public
Works may also immediately suspend a user's discharge, after notice and opportunity to respond,
that threatens to interfere with the operation of the POTW, or that presents, or may present, an
endangerment to the environment.

A.      Any user notified of a suspension of its discharge permit shall immediately terminate or
        eliminate its wastewater discharge. In the event of a user's failure to immediately comply
        voluntarily with the suspension order, the Director of Public Works may implement such
        steps as deemed necessary, including immediate severance of the sewer connection, to
        prevent or minimize damage to the POTW, its receiving stream, or endangerment to any
        individuals. The Director of Public Works may allow the user to recommence its discharge
        when the user has demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works that the
        period of endangerment has passed, or corrective actions have been taken, unless the
        termination proceedings in Sections 10.5 or 10.6 of this Ordinance are initiated against the
        user.

B.      A user that is responsible, in whole or in part, for any discharge presenting imminent
        endangerment shall submit a detailed written statement, describing the causes of the
        harmful contribution and the measures implemented to prevent any future occurrence, to the
        Director of Public Works prior to the date of any show cause or termination hearing under
        Section 10.4 of this Ordinance.

Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as requiring a hearing prior to any emergency suspension
under this Section.

10.8    Recovery of Expenses

Any person or industrial user violating any of the provisions of this Ordinance shall become liable
to the Town for any expense, loss, or damage occasioned the Town by reason of such violation. If
the Director of Public Works or Board of Selectmen implemented the disconnection of a building
sewer from a public sewer, the Town may collect the expenses associated with completing the
disconnection from any person or user responsible for, or willfully concerned in, or who profited by
such violation. The Town may thereafter refuse to permit the restoration of the former connection
or of any new connection to the property concerned in the violation until the claim of the Town for
the cost of completing such disconnection shall have been paid in full plus interest and the
reasonable cost of any legal expenses incurred by the Town in connection therewith.

10.9    Harm to Town Property

No person shall maliciously, willfully, or negligently damage, destroy, uncover, deface or tamper
with any structure, appurtenance or equipment that is part of the POTW. Any person violating this
provision shall be guilty of criminal mischief and subject to immediate arrest and/or fines pursuant
to the local Ordinances and State and federal statutes. Ref. RSA 634:2.

10.10 Injunctive Relief

When the Director of Public Works determines that a user has violated, or continues to violate, any
provision of this Ordinance, an IDP, or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard
or requirement, the Director of Public Works may petition the Lebanon District Court or Grafton
County Superior Court through the Town's Attorney for the issuance of a temporary or permanent
injunction, as appropriate, which restrains or compels the specific performance of the IDP, order, or
other requirement imposed by this Ordinance on activities of the user. The Director of Public
Works may also seek such other action as is appropriate for legal and/or equitable relief, including a
requirement for the user to conduct environmental remediation. A petition for injunctive relief shall
not be a bar against, or a prerequisite for, implementing any other action against a user.

10.11 Penalties (Fines)

A.      When the Director of Public Works finds that a user has violated, or continues to violate,
        any provision of this Ordinance or an IDP and the user’s appeal is successful, the
        payment, together with any interest accruing thereto, shall be returned to the user. The
        Director of Public Works may deduct the costs of preparing administrative enforcement
        actions, such as notices and orders, to the fine.

10.12 Civil Penalties

The Town may pursue any other or any combination of remedies for enforcement of this
ordinance available to it under applicable law. Each day in which any such violation shall
continue shall be deemed a separate offense.




Ordinance #14                                  Page 48                      Amended September 13, 2010
A.      Any person or user who has violated, or continues to violate, any provision of this
        Ordinance, an IDP, or order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or
        requirement shall be liable to the Town for a maximum civil penalty of $10,000 per
        violation, as authorized by RSA 149-I:6, per day, plus actual damages incurred by the
        POTW. In the case of a monthly or other long-term average discharge limit, penalties
        shall accrue for each day during the period of the violation.

B.      The Town may recover reasonable attorneys' fees, court costs, and other expenses
        associated with enforcement activities, including sampling and monitoring expenses, and
        the cost of any actual damages incurred by the Town. The Town shall petition the Court
        to impose, assess, and recover such sums.

C.      In determining the amount of civil liability, the Court shall consider all relevant
        circumstances, including, but not limited to, the extent of harm caused by the violation,
        the magnitude and duration of the violation, any economic benefit gained through the
        user's violation, corrective actions implemented by the user, the compliance history of the
        user, and any other factor as justice requires.

D.      Filing a suit for civil penalties shall not be a bar against, or a prerequisite for,
        implementing any other action against a user.

E.      The Town shall give notice of the alleged violation to the NHDES within 10 days of
        commencement of any action under this section. (Ref. RSA 149-I:6)

10.13 Criminal Penalties

Any person who willfully or negligently violates any provision of this Ordinance, an IDP, or
order issued hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or requirement shall be subject to
criminal prosecution. The Director of Public Works shall cooperate with all law enforcement
officials having jurisdiction over such criminal conduct in the event that a prosecution is
undertaken. Every separate provision violated shall constitute a separate violation. Every day
that a violation occurs shall be deemed a separate violation. Additionally, any violation may be
referred to the state for criminal prosecution under its powers. (Ref. RSA 485-A:22 and RSA
485-A:5)

10.14 Nonexclusive Remedies

The remedies provided for in this Ordinance are not exclusive. The Town may take any, all, or any
combination of these actions against a noncompliant user. Enforcement of pretreatment violations
will generally be in order of potential impact as determined by the Director of Public Works.
However, the Town may pursue other action against any user without limitation, including ex parte
temporary judicial relief to prevent a violation of this Ordinance. Further, the Town is empowered
to pursue more than one enforcement action against any noncompliant user.

SECTION 11 - AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES TO DISCHARGE VIOLATIONS

11.1    Upset

A.      For the purposes of this section, “upset” means an exceptional incident in which there is
        unintentional and temporary noncompliance with pretreatment standards due to factors
        beyond the reasonable control of the user. An upset does not include noncompliance to the
        extent caused by operational error, improperly designed treatment facilities, inadequate
        treatment facilities, lack of preventive maintenance, or careless or improper operation.

B.      An upset shall constitute an affirmative defense to an action brought for noncompliance
        with pretreatment standards if the requirements of paragraph (C), below, are met.

C.      A user who intends to establish the affirmative defense of upset shall demonstrate, through
        properly signed, contemporaneous operating logs, or other relevant evidence that:

        1.      An upset occurred and the user can identify the cause(s) of the upset;

        2.      At the time of the upset, the facility was being operated in a prudent and workman-
                like manner and in compliance with applicable operation and maintenance
                procedures; and

        3.      The user has submitted the following information to the Director of Public Works
                within twenty-four (24) hours of becoming aware of the upset (if this information is
                provided orally, a written submittal must be provided within five (5) days):

                (a)   A description of the discharge and cause of noncompliance;

                (b)   The period of noncompliance, including exact dates and times or, if not
                      corrected, the anticipated time the noncompliance is expected to continue; and

                (c)   Action being implemented and/or planned to reduce, eliminate, and prevent
                      recurrence of the noncompliance.

D.      In any enforcement proceeding, the user causing an upset shall have the burden of proof.

E.      Users will have the opportunity for a judicial determination on any claim of upset only in an
        enforcement action brought for noncompliance with pretreatment standards.

F.      Users shall control production of all discharges to the extent necessary to maintain
        compliance with pretreatment standards upon reduction, loss, or failure of its treatment
        facility until the facility is restored or an alternative method of treatment is provided. This
        requirement applies in the situation where, among other things, the primary source of power
        of the treatment facility is reduced, lost, or fails.




Ordinance #14                                    Page 50                      Amended September 13, 2010
11.2    Prohibited Discharge Standards

A user shall have an affirmative defense to an enforcement action brought against it for
noncompliance with the general prohibitions in Section 2.4(A) of this Ordinance or the specific
prohibitions in Section 2.4(B) of this Ordinance if it can prove that it did not know, or have reason
to know, that its discharge, alone or in conjunction with discharges from other sources, would cause
pass through or interference and that either:

A.      A local limit exists for each pollutant discharged and the user was in compliance with each
        limit directly prior to, and during, the pass through or interference; or

B.      No local limit exists, but the discharge did not change substantially in nature or constituents
        from the user's prior discharge when the Town was regularly in compliance with its NPDES
        permit, and in the case of interference, was in compliance with applicable sludge use or
        disposal requirements.

11.3    Bypass

A.      For the purposes of this section:

        1.      “Bypass” means the intentional diversion of waste streams from any portion of a
                user's treatment facility.

        2.      “Severe Property Damage” means substantial physical damage to property, damage to
                the treatment facilities that causes them to become inoperable, or substantial and
                permanent loss of natural resources that can reasonably be expected to occur in the
                absence of a bypass. Severe property damage does not mean economic loss caused by
                delays in production.

B.      A user may allow any bypass to occur that does not cause pretreatment standards or
        requirements to be violated, but only if it also is for essential maintenance to assure efficient
        operation. These bypasses are not subject to the provision of paragraphs (C) and (D) of this
        section.

C.      The user shall provide the following notifications for bypass events:

        1.      If a user is aware in advance of the need for a bypass, it shall submit prior notice to the
                Director of Public Works, at least ten (10) days before the date of the bypass, if
                possible.

        2.      A user shall submit oral notice to the Director of Public Works and the Water
                Reclamation Facility Superintendent of an unanticipated bypass that exceeds
                applicable pretreatment standards immediately. A written submittal shall also be
                provided within five (5) days of the time the user becomes aware of the bypass. The
                written submittal shall contain a description of the bypass and its cause; the duration
                of the bypass, including exact dates and times, and, if the bypass has not been


Ordinance #14                                     Page 51                       Amended September 13, 2010
                corrected, the anticipated time it is expected to continue; and steps implemented or
                planned to reduce, eliminate, and prevent reoccurrence of the bypass.

D.      Bypass is prohibited, and the Director of Public Works may initiate enforcement action
        against a user for a bypass, unless:

        1.      Bypass was unavoidable to prevent loss of life, personal injury, or severe property
                damage;

        2.      There were no feasible alternatives to the bypass, such as the use of auxiliary
                treatment facilities, retention of untreated wastes, or maintenance during normal
                periods of equipment downtime. This condition is not satisfied if adequate back-up
                equipment should have been installed in the exercise of reasonable engineering
                judgment to prevent a bypass that occurred during normal periods of equipment
                downtime or preventive maintenance; and

        3.      The user submitted notices as required under paragraph (C) of this section.

E.      The Director of Public Works may approve an anticipated bypass, subsequent to
        considering its adverse effects, if the Director of Public Works determines that it will satisfy
        the three conditions listed in paragraph (D) of this section.


SECTION 12 - SEPTAGE DISPOSAL

RSA 485-A, or revisions thereto, of the State rules, regulations, standards, and procedures
promulgated thereupon require that "any person, firm, corporation, municipal subdivision or
institution who removes, transports, or disposes, or intends to remove, transport or dispose of any
human excrement or other putrescible material by portable or mobile container shall hold an
unrevoked permit for that purpose from the NHDES." Therefore, the holding of such a permit shall
be a condition precedent to the privileges to dispose such material at the Town's wastewater
treatment facility.

Such permit, as required by RSA 485-A, shall be on file with the Town. Upon renewal or
revocation of such permit, the hauler shall be responsible for notification of such renewal or
revocation to the Town.

12.1    Septage Hauler Requirements

A.      Only haulers registered with a Town with a septage agreement with the Town of Hanover
        will be allowed to discharge septage into the Hanover Wastewater Treatment Facility from
        that Town.

B.      Such hauler may discharge septage to the facilities provided at the Town's wastewater
        treatment facility only after paying the charges as set forth in Section 12.4 of this Ordinance.



Ordinance #14                                    Page 52                     Amended September 13, 2010
C.      No person, firm, corporation, municipal subdivision or institution shall discharge any toxic,
        poisonous, radioactive solids, liquids or gases, or the contents of grease, gas, oil and/or sand
        interceptors into the Town's wastewater treatment facility.

12.2    Temporary Septage Permits

The Director of Public Works shall have the right to issue a temporary permit to allow the discharge
of septage at a point of discharge other than the wastewater treatment facility in a situation where
such temporary discharge point is necessary to protect the health and welfare of the Town. The
Director of Public Works shall issue such permit upon such terms and conditions as the Director of
Public Works deems to be in the best interests of the Town. The temporary permit shall be valid
for a period not exceeding twelve (12) months. The Director of Public Works shall have the right
to revoke or suspend the temporary permit in the event that the terms and conditions are not met.

12.3    Septage Permits

A.      Any person, firm, corporation, municipal subdivision, institution or hauler who conforms to
        RSA 485-A and intends to dispose of septage, human excrement or other putrescible
        material within the limits of the Town shall first obtain a permit therefore from the Town.

B.      Such permit as issued by the Town shall identify:

        1.      The motor vehicle;

        2.      The capacity of the tank;

        3.      The NHDES Permit Number; and

        4.      Any other details of compliance with the regulations of the NHDES.

C.      The following conditions shall constitute conditions precedent to the issuance of each
        permit by the Town:

        1.      Each septic tank truck shall have an access port in which the quantity of the contents
                of each truck may be ascertained by depth measurements.

        2.      The hauler shall record the following prior to the time of disposal as follows:

                a.   The hauler's name;
                b.   Date;
                c.   Time of disposal;
                d.   Volume disposed;
                e.   Origin of load (property owner's name, address, and telephone number); and
                f.   Nature of the waste (i.e., grease or septage) being disposed.

        3.      Such record as described in Section 13.3(C)(2) shall be located at the POTW.


Ordinance #14                                     Page 53                     Amended September 13, 2010
        4.      The Director of Public Works may require liability insurance and reasonable coverage
                with a certificate of insurance on request.


SECTION 13 - VALIDITY

A.      All Ordinances or parts of Ordinances in conflict herewith are hereby repealed.

B.      The invalidity of any section, clause, sentence, or provision of this Ordinance shall not
        affect the validity of any other part of this Ordinance that can be given effect without such
        invalid part or parts.


SECTION 14 - INTERPRETATION OF REQUIREMENTS

14.1    Interpretation

The provisions of this Ordinance with respect to the meaning of technical terms and phrases, the
classification of different types of sewers, the regulations with respect to installing or constructing

       material, except when excavated material is unsuitable. Unsuitable materials
                                         Page 3 of 6
Ordinance #14                                                   Amended September 13, 2010
       include: stones larger than six (6) inches, organic material, pavement or concrete
       debris, and cohesive soils (clay and silt). In paved areas, replace gravel base course
       to the same depth as in the adjacent paved areas, or to a minimum depth of twelve
       (12) inches below the sub-grade elevation for pavement whichever is greater.
       Pavement patching shall match trench patch requirements.

B.     Placement: In roadway areas, backfill shall be placed in loose lifts not to exceed
       twelve (12) inches in thickness. In landscaped areas, backfill shall be placed in
       loose lifts not to exceed eighteen (18) inches in thickness. Each lift shall be
       compacted as specified below. When hand-operated vibratory compaction
       equipment (vibratory plate compactors and jumping jacks) is used, the lift thickness
       shall be reduced to six (6) inches in roadway areas and twelve (12) inches in
       landscaped areas.

       Perform dewatering, as required, to allow placement of backfill in-the-dry.

C.     Compaction: Earth-moving equipment not specifically designed for compaction
       shall not be used for the purpose of compaction under paved and graveled roadway
       areas. Large vibratory rollers should not be used for compaction unless there is at
       least twelve 12 inches of backfill above the crown of the pipe.

       From mid-diameter of pipe to subgrade elevation for gravel base course, backfill
       materials shall be compacted to at least 95 percent of the material's maximum dry
       density, as determined by ASTM D1557 (Modified Proctor). Gravel base course
       shall be compacted to at least 95 percent of the material's maximum dry density, as
       determined by ASTM D1557 (Modified Proctor). Testing of backfill materials
       shall be in accordance with ASTM D1556 (Sand Cone Method) or D2922 (Nuclear
       density gauge).

       For small projects, the requirements for compaction testing may be waived by the
       Director of Public Works. In such case, each lift shall be compacted by at least four
       passes of approved compaction equipment.

2.6    Manhole and Pipe Testing

A.     Manhole Hydrostatic Test:

       The manhole will be filled with water to the top of the cone section. If the
       excavation has not been backfilled and there is no water visibly moving down the
       outer surface of the manhole, it will be considered satisfactorily water-tight. If the
       excavation has been backfilled, the contractor has the option to allow a period of
       time for absorption. At the end of this period, the manhole will be refilled, if
       necessary and the measuring time of at least eight (8) hours begun. At the end of
       the 8-hour period, the drop of the water level in the manhole will be measured and
       compared to the allowable drop or water loss represented by Table 1.

       The maximum allowable leakage shall not exceed one (1) gallon per vertical foot
                                        Page 4 of 6
Ordinance #14                                                  Amended September 13, 2010
          over a 24-hour period. (See Table 1)

B.        Manhole Testing:

          The manhole will be brought under no less than ten (10) inches of vacuum, no
          matter what the manhole depth. There must be no more than one (1) inch of drop
          over a ten (10) minute period for the manhole to be acceptably watertight.

C.        All manhole testing will be completed prior to installation of inverts.

D.        Pipe Testing (Low Air Pressure):

         Pipe testing shall follow Table 2 with a minimum test pressure of four (4) pounds
         per square inch (psi).

E.        Pipe Testing (Deflection):

          Sewer lines may be tested for excessive deflection by passing a properly sized "Go:
          No go" mandrel through the line. This mandrel is to be constructed so it will pass
          through a line with maximum deflection of five (5) percent.

                      SEWER RENTAL RATES AND CHARGES

3.1    Sewer Rates

A.     The assessment and collection of the expense of constructing and maintaining the
       POTW shall be governed by the provisions of RSA 149-I and the Charter of the
       Town of Hanover 1963 Laws Ch. 374 as amended, and any other applicable general
       laws. In conformance with Section 15 of the Town Charter, the entire expense of
       construction and maintenance of the sewage disposal system shall be met by a user
       charge (hereinafter called sewer rental rate) as herein provided.

B.     The revenues collected, as a result of the sewer rental rates levied, shall be
       deposited in a separate non-lapsing fund known as the Sewer Fund.

C.     Fiscal year-end balances in the sewer fund shall be used for no other purposes than
       those designated. Monies that have been transferred from other sources to meet
       temporary shortages in the operation, maintenance and replacement fund shall be
       returned to their respective accounts upon appropriate adjustment of the user charge
       rates for operation, maintenance and replacement. The sewer rental rate(s) shall be
       adjusted such that the transferred monies will be returned to their respective
       accounts within twelve (12) months of the end of the fiscal year in which the
       monies were borrowed.

D.     Each user shall pay for the services provided by the Town based on its use of the
       wastewater treatment facility as determined by water meter readings (or other
       appropriate methods) as indicated in the latest Rates and Fee Schedule adopted by
       the Board of Selectmen.

E.     Sewer rates shall be determined on a periodic basis as follows:

       1. Base charge covering fixed costs, determined by meter size comparing average
          flows for each meter vs. total consumption.

       2. A Flow charges based on the annual cost of the system operation related to flow
          and not strength or fixed cost related.

       3. A Strength charge based on the cost of treating BOD & TSS. The strength
          charge shall be based upon three Categories of strength levels as follows:

                a. Category A - Low strength less than 250 mg/l of BOD & or TSS.

                b. Category B - Medium strength greater than or equal to 250 mg/l and less
                   than 400 mg/l of BOD & or TSS.

Ordinance #14                                                  Amended September 13, 2010
                c. Category C - High strength greater than or equal to 400 mg/l of BOD &
                   or TSS.      This category shall include All Food Preparation
                   Establishments without an Approved Automatic Grease Removal
                   System.

       Each account strength classification shall be determined by the highest
       classification of any use within a facility as shown in the Equivalent User Table.

F.     Users for whom no water meter readings are available, the sewer rental rate shall be
       based on a flat use based on the average equivalent user provided in the Rates and
       Fees Schedule and a surcharge of 25%. No new unmetered services shall be
       allowed.

G.     For users, sewer consumptive rates will be based on the quantity of wastewater
       discharged based on the water meter readings for water consumed during a billing
       period.

H.     In the event that a water meter is either not registering or incorrectly registering,
       the Town will estimate consumption based upon an average of previous readings.
       When no previous readings exist, the consumption will be based upon one half of
       the Equivalent user flow as indicated in the Equivalent User Flow in Section 3.5.
       There shall be no more than two (2) consecutive estimated bills.

I.     If a large user (> 5,000 gpd) can demonstrate to the Director of Public Works that a
       substantial quantity (greater than 50%) of metered water is not discharged into the
       wastewater collection system, the user may submit a request to have a wastewater
       meter installed as a basis of establishing wastewater discharge. Wastewater
       meter(s) when approved by the Town shall be installed, maintained, inspected and
       tested by a qualified third party at the user's expense. An alternate method may be
       considered when the entire flow of a branch of the water service lines within a
       facility does not enter the sewer system. In this case a separate meter may be
       installed, maintained, inspected and tested annually by a qualified third party at the
       user’s expense on the water service line that the entire respective flow does not
       enter the sewer system. A deduction of flow which is metered shall be applied to
       the user’s consumption total.          An additional meter reading and account
       administration charge shall apply for each additional meter.

J.     Any user that discharges any pollutants (as defined in this Ordinance), which cause
       an increase in the cost of managing the effluent or the sludge from the Town's
       wastewater treatment facility, or any user that discharges any substance, which
       singly or by interaction with other substances causes identifiable increases in the
       cost of operation, maintenance or replacement of the wastewater treatment facility,
       shall be required to cease or control the discharge or required to pay for such
       increased costs. The charge to each such user shall be as determined by the by the
       Director of Public Works and approved by the Board of Selectmen.

K.     The sewer rental rate established in this Section shall apply to all users of the
       Town's wastewater treatment facility.

L.     All users contributing wastewater whose waste strength is greater than normal
       sanitary sewage shall prepare and file with the Town Self Monitoring Reports
       report that shall include pertinent data relating to the wastewater characteristics,
       including the methods of sampling and measurement to obtain these data, and these
       data shall be used to calculate the sewer rental rate for that user. The Town shall
       have the right to gain access to the waste stream and take its own samples. Should
       the Town do so and should the results be substantially different from the data
       submitted by the user, the sewer rental rate for that user shall be revised for the next
       billing cycle/period.

M.     All users shall be billed a minimum of four times per year. Payments are due
       within 30 days following the billing day. Any payment not made by 30 days
       following the billing day in which it is due shall be considered delinquent and
       subject to a late payment penalty of one (1) percent for each thirty days or portion
       thereof of delinquency, except that, when bills for payment under this section are
       mailed on or after the billing date, interest shall not be charged until 30 days after
       the last bill is mailed.

N.     When any bill (including interest and penalty) remains unpaid for one (1) year after
       the date due, such bill shall be collected in conformance with RSA 149-I, or
       revisions thereto.

O.     Any user who believes his sewer rental rate is unjust and inequitable may make
       written application to the Town requesting a review of his sewer rental rate. Said
       written request shall, where necessary, show the actual or estimated average flow
       and/or strength of his wastewater in comparison with the values upon which the
       sewer rental rate is based, including how the measurements or estimates were
       determined. Any user within a category may provide testing, approved by the
       Director of Public Works, to justify changing to a different category. Testing
       methods, requirements, frequency and type shall be the sole discretion of the
       Director of Public Works.

P.     Review of the request shall be made by the Board of Selectmen and if substantiated,
       the sewer rental rates for that user shall be recomputed based on the revised flow
       and the new sewer rental rates shall be applicable to the next billing cycle/period.

Q.     The Board of Selectmen will review the sewer rental rates at least annually and
       revise the rates as necessary to ensure that adequate revenues are generated to pay
       the costs of operation and maintenance including replacement and that the system
       continues to provide for the proportional distribution of operation and maintenance
       including replacement costs among users and user classes.

R.     The Town will notify users at a noticed public hearing of the sewer rental rate being

       charged for operations and maintenance, including replacement costs related to the
       wastewater treatment facility.

S.     The sewer rental rates as established by the Town latest Rates and Fee Schedule
       adopted by the Board of Selectmen shall prevail. Any previous contracts,
       agreements, or arrangements as to rates, methods for collection, or any other
       element effecting rates and charges shall be null and void.

T.     The Town shall revise or amend sewer rental rates and charges, as deemed
       necessary for the operation and maintenance of the POTW.

       provided a new building receives a Certificate of Occupancy within three (3) years
       of the prior residence being demolished, the flow doesn’t increase (only the
       increase in flow would be charged) and the user continues to pay the 5/8” meter
       charge.

G.     Any existing service connection with a change in use which increase the quantity
       or changes the quality of wastewater discharged, a discharge permit must be
       obtained and a connection fee paid for the additional quantity of flow that is
       generated based on the new use.

                          FATS, OIL & GREASE CONTROL

5.1    Purpose

The Town of Hanover often deals with sewer blockages caused by the accumulation of
Fats Oil & Grease (FOG). In addition, the Water Reclamation Facility receives excessive
amounts of FOG which may cause foaming, bulking, and high organic loading if
bypassed to the biological process. Although FOG wastewater is discharged to the sewer
system from several sources a significant source originates from Food Preparation
Establishments which are any non-single family residential discharge that performs food
preparation as part of their functions.

In order to reduce problems associated with FOG, Food Preparation Establishments
connected to the Town of Hanover sewer service area that discharge wastewater
containing FOG must install and properly operate and maintain an Automatic Grease
Interceptor.

This appendix provides guidelines and procedures to ensure compliance with the Town of
Hanover Sewer Use Ordinance and is intended to prevent sanitary sewer blockages,
obstructions and Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) sludge bulking and loading
problems associated with the accumulation of FOG.

5.2    Applicability

Grease interceptors shall be provided at the owner's expense when, in the opinion of the
Director of Public Works they are necessary for wastewater discharges to meet the
limitations of this Ordinance. Grease interceptors shall be required for all establishments
listed in this section. All interception units shall be of a type and capacity approved by the
Director of Public Works and shall be so located as to be easily accessible for cleaning and
inspection by the owner and the Town. Maintenance of these interceptors requires that the
owner be responsible for the proper removal and disposal by appropriate means of the
captured materials and shall maintain records of the dates and means of disposal, which
shall be subject to periodic review by the Director of Public Works Reports shall be
submitted at the discretion of the Director of Public Works indicating all maintenance and
cleaning activities.

The following Food Preparation Establishments shall have a properly sized and
functioning Automatic Grease Interceptor:

       1)    Restaurants
       2)    Schools
       3)    Hospitals
       4)    Nursing or Retirement Homes
       5)    Catering Services

Ordinance #14                                                 Amended September 13, 2010
       6)    Supermarkets
       7)    Any Other Facility that handles FOG and which discharges wastewater
             containing FOG into the Town of Hanover sewer collection system or
             otherwise as required by the Director of Public Works.

5.3    Food Preparation Establishment Pre-Treatment Policy

All new Food Preparation Establishments shall install and maintain an Automatic Grease
Interceptor to limit FOG. External FOG interceptors may not substitute an internal
Automatic Grease Removal System. External FOG interceptors may be required in
addition to Automatic Grease Removal Systems to meet the limitations contained in
Appendix 1.

Wastewater generated from garbage grinders, pulpers or any other devices used to
breakdown food waste is prohibited from being discharged to the sewer unless
specifically authorized by an Industrial Discharge Permit issued by the Town of Hanover.

An effluent sample may be required for analyses to determine if discharges meet the oil
and grease limitations contained in Appendix 1. Samples shall be collected when the
facility is in operation and be representative of a normal discharge day. The Town of
Hanover may inspect and sample oil and grease interceptors to determine compliance
with this ordinance.

5.4    Existing Establishments

Existing Food Preparation Establishments without any grease interception systems, if
required by the Director of Public Works shall install an approved Automatic Grease
Interceptor.

The Director of Public Works may require Food Preparation Establishments to obtain
Industrial Discharge Permits or submit an application for an Industrial Discharge Permit, as
necessary to execute installation of an Automatic Grease Interceptor.

When requested by the Director of Public Works, a user must submit the Industrial
Discharge Permit Application within thirty (30) days of the request. Existing Food
Preparation Establishments with a traditional manually cleaned internal grease trap or an
External Fog Interceptor are required to install an Automatic Grease Interceptor:

       1)    When improvements are made to a Food Preparation Establishment and a
             plumbing permit is required.

       2)    When analyses indicates an existing system exceeds the oil and grease levels
             contained in Appendix 1.

       3)    When blockages occur as a result of inadequate existing grease removal
             equipment.

Grease Interceptor requirements contained in section 6 of this appendix shall be required
to demonstrate that effluent oil and grease concentrations meet the levels contained in
Appendix 1. Existing grease removal systems which do not meet these levels shall install
an Automatic Grease Removal System as required by this appendix.

The Director of Public Works reserves the right to make determinations of grease
interceptor adequacy and need, based on review of all relevant information (including
analytical results) regarding grease interceptor performance, facility site and building
plan review, and to require repairs to, or modification or replacement of such removal
systems.

5.8    Enforcement

If an obstruction of a Town of Hanover sewer line occurs that causes a sewer overflow
and such an overflow can be attributed in part or in whole to an accumulation of FOG in
the Town of Hanover sewer main(s), The Town of Hanover will take appropriate
enforcement actions, as stipulated in the Town of Hanover Sewer Use Ordinance, against

Ordinance #14                                               Amended September 13, 2010
the generator or contributor of FOG. These actions may include fines, civil penalties or a
discontinuance of sewer service as specified in Section 10 of the Town of Hanover SUO.

5.9    Best Management Practices (BMP)

FOG can be managed effectively in Food Preparation Establishments to minimize its
discharge to the sewer system and decrease the required maintenance of grease
interceptors. By preventing the introduction of grease into the wastewater treatment
system you reduce the burden on the grease interceptor and thus reduce maintenance
time, costs and disposal fees. The Best Management Practices offered here are techniques
used throughout the industry, and have proven effective when implemented properly and
consistently. The following BMP’s may be required for Food Preparation Establishments:

       1)    Train Kitchen Staff: Train kitchen staff in management practices and
             methods to reduce the volume of FOG discharged to the sanitary sewer
             system. Train them to be aware of problems created by FOG in the sewers
             system, possible violations and fines and the cost of cleaning clogged pipes.
             Even a small amount of grease on each pot, pan or plate can be substantial
             when you serve hundreds of meals per day.

       2)    Post NO GREASE Signs: By posting "No Grease" signs above sinks, on
             dishwashers and near other grease discharge points, it serves as a constant
             reminder to keep grease out of the system.

       3)    Dry Wipe Pots, Pans and Dishware prior to Dishwashing: Food, fats,
             cooking oil and grease remaining in pots and pans should be dry wiped or
             scraped out into the trash prior to wet washing. In some establishments this
             can substantially reduce FOG discharged to your grease interceptors.
             Disposing of grease by recycling or garbage is less expensive than pumping
             out and hauling away FOG from a grease interceptor.

       4)    Garbage Grinders and Pulpers are Prohibited: Ground up food scraps
             will settle in the grease interceptor and take up valuable space lowering the
             detention time in the grease interceptor and result in reduced efficiency.
             Pulper wastewater binds with grease and will fowl an interceptor making it
             ineffective. Instead, recycle or dispose food scraps as a solid waste. This
             will also help reduce the frequency of grease interceptor cleanings.

       5)    Clean Grease Interceptor Routinely and Maintain Records: Routine
             cleanings and inspections will ensure proper operation of the interceptor.
             Make note of the grease level and record it in maintenance log. If the grease
             level is at its maximum, the cleaning frequency should be increased.
             Conversely, if best management practices are being implemented effectively
             and the grease in the unit is minimal, then the cleaning frequency may be
             reduced. Maintenance records may be requested during inspections.


                                       Page 8 of 9
Ordinance #14                                              Amended September 13, 2010
      6)   Witness Cleaning, Disposal and Maintenance Events: The on duty
           manager should witness cleaning events to ensure they are performed
           completely and properly. This will ensure that pumpers/haulers or
           maintenance workers do not take any shortcuts. To properly clean the
           interceptor the entire contents must be removed, including grease cap
           (floating grease) and sludge pocket (settled solids). Failure to remove the
           slug pocket (settled solids) in the bottom will result in lowered total capacity
           and reduced detention time. The manager should also be sure removable
           baffles and screens are replaced after cleaning. Insure that the grease is
           disposed of properly either as a solid waste or recycled that it is not dumped
           in another drain at the facility.

      7)   Inspect the Grease Interceptor during maintenance: The design of most
           grease interceptors is very simple, but each part serves an essential function.
           The baffles must be in place and properly positioned to be effective. Covers
           must fit properly so they do not leak. In-ground interceptors should be
           examined for cracks, which could allow wastewater to leak out or ground
           water to leak in.

      8)   Automatic Grease Interceptors require maintenance: Automatic Grease
           Interceptors must be maintained in order to be effective. Solids strainers and
           the outside grease cup may need to be emptied daily. Wiper blades and the
           grease outlet trough must be cleaned weekly. Clean the entire unit including
           sediment at the bottom monthly. Replace wiper blades every 6 months and
           most importantly make sure your unit is plugged in and the auto timer is set
           properly.

                                            APPENDICES

Appendix A. Application for Building Permit:

Application for a permit shall be made to the code official and shall be accompanied by one
complete set of plans and specifications showing the work to be done. Additional sets of plans shall
be provided for, if required by the Planning & Zoning Department. All plans shall bear the seal of an
architect or engineer licensed by the State of New Hampshire, except for single or two-family
residences or any structure which does not have as its principal structural members reinforced
concrete or structural steel and is two and one-half stories or less and 4,000 square feet or less in area
and is not a building of assembly, church, hospital, or school use.

Appendix B. Schedule for Processing Permit Application:

Upon submission of a complete application, the code official shall act to approve or deny a Building
Permit within thirty (30) days, provided however, that non-residential applications encompassing
more than two (2) dwelling units shall be approved or denied within sixty (60) days.

An application which is incomplete shall be deemed abandoned if no further action is taken by the
applicant within six (6) months after the original filing. All material furnished will be returned to the
applicant upon written request. If construction is not started within twelve (12) months after the date

of approval of the permit the job will be considered abandoned and twenty-five (25%) percent of the
Building Permit fee will be returned to the applicant upon written request.

Appendix C. Procedure for Handling Non-Compliance:

The owner/owner’s representative shall obtain an appointment for an inspection 24 hours before any
work is covered to determine Building Code compliance. If the code official finds work covered the
contractor shall, upon request, uncover the work for inspection. If an owner/contractor is not
available at a scheduled inspection, the owner may be charged a fee as established in the current Rate
& Fee Schedule as adopted by the Board of Selectmen to cover the Planning & Zoning Department
costs and will be required to reschedule immediately the required inspection.

If the code official determines that work is proceeding without the required inspections being
requested, the Building Permit will be suspended and the code official shall remove the Permit Card
from the project and no further work shall be done under the Building Permit until the suspension
has been lifted. Reinstatement of the Building Permit will require the contractor to pay to the
Planning & Zoning Department a sum equal to one-half of the original permit fee or fifty dollars
($50.00), whichever is greater.

The provision of this Appendix shall equally apply to the owner if the owner is performing the work
on the building or structure.

of land and roads in the Watershed Area cease for the protection of public health; and,

       WHEREAS the health and safety of the residents of Hanover who use the public
water supply require in the judgment of the Hanover Health Officer the regulation of said
lands and roads and water in the Watershed Area.

       NOW THEREFORE, the Hanover Health Officer with the approval of the Board of
Selectmen makes the following regulations pursuant to New Hampshire Revised Statutes
Annotated Chapter 147:

Public Health Regulations as to the Hanover Watershed Area

The following regulations are hereby adopted and apply as to that portion of the Town of

       8.     Allocation Between Fees and Taxes: The amount of net expenses to be paid
by the Central Business Parking Districts shall be obtained as follows: fifty percent (50%)
from parking space fees and fifty percent (50%) from a special service area tax on
properties within the Central Business Parking District. This allocation has been made after
consideration of the criteria contained in the Town Charter, Section 17a, VII.

       9.      Inventory of Off-Street Parking Requirements: The Selectmen shall establish
a separate inventory setting forth the off-street parking requirements for each property in
each District by using as a measure the off-street parking requirements set forth in the Town
Zoning Ordinance regardless of whether or not such requirements apply under the Town
Zoning Ordinance to any particular property. The Zoning Administrator shall make the
determinations with regard to off-street parking requirements and shall include as a credit
any off-street parking spaces located on a lot other than the building served, as authorized
by a special exception from the Zoning Board of Adjustment. An individual property
required off-street parking spaces as reduced by the number of such parking spaces actually
provided as of the first day of April in each year, shall be the "Adjusted Parking
Requirement."

          A.      Report of Changes: It shall be the obligation of each property owner to
          provide to the Zoning Administrator in writing, prior to April 1 of each year,
          notification of any changes to the number of parking spaces actually provided,
          including a description of the location of all off-street parking spaces. The purpose
          of this provision is to ensure that parking space fees are determined based on correct
          and current information.

          B.       Appeal of Adjusted Parking Requirement: After the determination of the off-
          street parking requirements for each property by the Zoning Administrator, the
          property owner shall have the right to appeal that decision to the Board of Selectmen
          if it is claimed that such calculation is not in conformity with this Ordinance. The
          Board of Selectmen shall hear the appeal at a public meeting and shall give notice to
          the property owner and the public in the same manner as notice in paragraph 6.

       10.     Parking Space Fee/Lien/Adjustments: The parking space fee for each
property in the Districts shall be equal to the proportionate share that each property's
Adjusted Parking Requirements bears to the total Adjusted Parking Requirements for all
property in each District. All such parking space fees shall become a lien upon the property
so charged and such lien may be enforced by a lawsuit on behalf of the Town ordered by the
Selectmen against the owner or owners of such property. The record in the office of the
Selectmen and the charges for the parking space fee set forth therein shall be sufficient
notice to maintain a lawsuit upon such lien against the subsequent purchasers or attaching
creditors of such real estate. In the event that the off-street parking requirements set forth in
the Town Zoning Ordinance are amended, then the inventory of off-street parking
requirements for each property in the proper District shall be adjusted accordingly as of


3/25/11                                   Page 3
April 1 of the year following the amendment.

        11.    Boundary Changes: Changes in the boundaries of either District shall be
made by the Selectmen from time to time as a result of the change in nature of the property
in the area or the services provided. Such changes may be made by the Selectmen upon
thirty (30) days written notice of the proposed change being sent first class mail to the last
known address on the tax rolls of the owners of each of the properties affected. Such
changes shall not be effective until after a public hearing. Notice shall be given at least ten
(10) calendar days before the public hearing, not including the day the notice is posted or
the day of the public hearing. Notice shall be published in the Valley News, a newspaper
circulating in Hanover, and shall be posted in at least two (2) public places. The notice
shall also indicate where a copy of the boundary changes is on file for public inspection.

       12.     Inventory of Districts' Properties: The Selectmen shall establish a separate
inventory listing the properties in each Parking District for the purpose of assessment of
taxes.

        13.    Amendment of this Ordinance: This Ordinance may be amended after notice
and public hearing. Notice of the public hearing shall be given by posting a copy of the
notice, including a copy of the proposed amendment, at the Municipal Building at least ten
(10) days prior to the hearing, not including the day the notice is posted or the day of the
public hearing. Notice shall be published in the Valley News, a newspaper circulating in
Hanover, and shall be posted in at least two (2) public places. The notice shall also indicate
where a copy of the amendment to the Ordinance is on file for public inspection.

       1.     Declaration of Purpose: The purpose of these Health Regulations relating to
restaurants and food serving establishments within the limits of Hanover is to enable the
Town Health Officer to take prompt action for the protection of public health. These
Regulations rely on the standards contained in the Department of Health and Human
Services, N.H. Admin. Rules, He-P Chapter 2300. There is no duplication of standards and
the Town is not adopting a sanitary and health code.

      2.     Title: These Regulations shall be known and may be cited as the “Health
Regulations of the Town of Hanover.”

          3.    Authority: RSA 147:1 and 147:2.

        4.    Definition: "Establishment" shall mean a restaurant or other food serving
establishment.

      5.     Authority of Town Health Officer: Any establishment found to be in violation
of Admin. Rules, He-P Chapter 2300 as set forth below may be closed as follows:

A.        Based on the standards contained in He-P Chapter 2300, when the total rating score
          as documented on the state sanitary inspection report form is not less than 70 and
          there are no critical items in violation, the establishment may remain open to the
          public.




3/25/11
5. Authority of Town Health Officer (continued)


B.         When the state sanitary inspection as documented on the state sanitary inspection
           report form shows a score of less than 70 the Town Health Officer shall give the
           establishment a specific period of time in writing to cure the violations by satisfying
           the standards of He-P Chapter 2300. The operator of the establishment shall post a
           copy of the order in a prominent place in the kitchen of the establishment and the
           order shall not be removed except with consent of the Town Health Officer. In
           addition, in the discretion of the Town Health Officer, he may post a copy of the
           order in 2 public places in the Town and or publish one or more times a copy of the
           order in the Valley News. The order shall include a reference to the possible closure
           of the establishment without a hearing as set forth in these Regulations.

C.         If the Town Health Officer determines by a follow-up inspection that the violations
           have not been so cured within that period of time as set forth in the order, the
           establishment may be closed by the issuance of a written order without a hearing for
           a 10 day period or until the violation is corrected and the sanitary condition is
           approved by the Town Health Officer. The owner of the establishment may request a
           public hearing before the Town Health Officer any time after the order to close has
           been delivered and such hearing shall be held within 48 hours of receipt of request.
           The Town Health Officer may post and/or publish such order as he may deem
           necessary under all of the circumstances for the purpose of protecting public health.

D.         If the sanitary or health violations are not corrected with the 10 day period, the Town
           Health Officer may take such other legal action as authorized under New Hampshire
           Law.

        6.             Penalty: Any person willfully violating these Regulations shall be guilty of a
violation.

                may issue a Street Fair Permit upon receipt of a complete and accurate application
                from a reasonable nonprofit organization if the proposed Street Fair does not threaten
                the health, safety and welfare of the public. Any Street Fair Permit may be
                withdrawn by the Board of Selectmen if the Town determines that the information
                contained in the Street Fair Permit application is false or non-existent in any material
                detail, or if a nonprofit organization is determined to have violated any provisions of
                this ordinance. All Street Fair Permits issued by the Town shall be non-transferable,
                non-negotiable and non-assignable.

                                  TOWN OF HANOVER

                   ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN

The Board of Selectmen of Hanover, New Hampshire, ordain as follows:

                            CONTROL OF DUTCH ELM DISEASE

         1.      Declaration of Purpose: The Board of Selectmen recognize the aesthetic
value of elm trees to the Town of Hanover. Such trees make a substantial contribution to
the attractive appearance of our community. In order to preserve and protect these valuable
trees, it is determined to be necessary to provide for the spraying, feeding or the removal or
pruning and limbing of diseased elm trees located on both public and private property as
part of the Dutch Elm Disease Program. Unless the Town requires sanitation which
involves the elimination of diseased elm wood, all other supplemental control measures will
be ineffective.

      2.    Title: This Ordinance shall be known and may be cited as the “Control of
Dutch Elm Disease Ordinance of the Town of Hanover.”

          3.   Authority:

        4.   Control Area. This Ordinance shall apply to elm trees located on public and
private property within the area of the Town as shown on the attached map marked
Appendix A and made a part of this Ordinance. (Hereinafter referred to as the "control
area".)

        5.     Administrator. The Manager shall appoint a person to administer the
sanitation program required under this Ordinance. The Administrator shall have the right to
enter on private property for the purpose of performing the duties hereinafter set forth. In
the event that the Administrator is refused an entry, then the Administrator shall have the
right to apply for a search warrant as provided under law so as to carry out such duties.




3/25/11
       6.      Diseased Elm Trees on Town Property and/or Rights-of-Way. The
Administrator shall prepare an inventory of all elm trees located on Town property and/or
rights-of-way and shall schedule the spraying, feeding or removal or pruning and limbing of
any such elm trees as may be required under the appropriate sanitation procedure. Such
control measures shall be coordinated with all other appropriate Town Departments and
Agencies through the Manager. Continual inspection of elm trees listed on the inventory
will be as required under the control program.

       7.      Diseased Elm Trees on Private Property. It is necessary to apply sanitation
procedures to diseased elms on private property otherwise all other control procedures will
be useless because the Dutch Elm Disease will continue to spread to trees on Town and
other private property.

A.        Inventory. The Administrator shall prepare an inventory of all elm trees on private
          property in the control area.

B.        Determination. The Administrator shall determine which elm trees on this private
          inventory require sanitation measures, removal or maintenance.

C.        Notices. The private landowner shall be given a written notice of such measures that
          the Town intends to take as may be required in the opinion of the Administrator. The
          notice will be delivered or mailed by first class mail to the landowner. Notices to
          non-resident landowners will be by certified mail, return receipt requested. In any
          such notice the Administrator shall indicate the action described therein to be carried
          out by a specific date but not before the expiration of 30 days from the date of the
          notice. The notice will include a statement that all costs will be paid by the Town.

D.        Expense. The expense of the control measures as set forth in this Ordinance shall
          be borne by the Town to the extent that funds are made available as appropriated by
          the Town at the Annual Town Meeting.

E.        Enforcement and Penalty. The Manager, with the advice of the Administrator, shall
          initiate action against any person who does not comply with any notice or order
          given hereunder by filing a complaint in the Hanover District Court or taking such
          other action as may be available either at law or in equity in any court. The penalty
          for the violation of this ordinance shall be a fine not to exceed $100 and each day
          that a person is found to be in violation may be considered a separate offense.

7. Diseased Elm Trees on Private Property (continued)


F.         Emergency Procedures. If the Administrator determines that emergency sanitation
           procedures must be taken immediately as to elm trees located on private property
           then the Administrator shall have the authority to cause such sanitation measures to
           be taken without complying with the procedures set forth in Paragraph 7 A-C above,
           with the approval of the Manager.

       8.     Records. In addition to maintaining an Elm Tree Inventory of all public and
private elms in the control area as defined by Appendix A, the Town Manager will maintain
records of the control measures taken on each tree and their results and he will annually
prepare an analysis of the effectiveness of the program to be presented to the Selectmen and
the public.

      9.     Effective Date. This Ordinance shall become effective after approval by the
Board of Selectmen and on the next day following the publication of this Ordinance in the
newspaper "Valley News".

       10.     Expiration Date. This Ordinance shall expire three years from the effective
date unless readopted prior thereto.
Adopted May 7, 1979.

644:13.

       4.     "Compact Part" Description. The compact part of Hanover for the purpose of
NH RSA 644:13 is shown on a map entitled "Hanover Compact Area, dated August 28,
1978", attached and made a part of this Ordinance. As shown on that map, the northeast
boundary of the compact part which lies easterly of Route 10 is described as follows:
Beginning at a point approximately 275 feet more or less north of the intersection of the

                                      movement are such that the outdoor activity permit
                                      would constitute an unreasonable detriment to traffic or
                                      pedestrian safety; or

                                   2. The Registration Statement reveals that the applicant
                                      would not be able to comply with the Standards of
                                      Issuance; or

                                      Statement is false or nonexistent in any material detail.

                 c. Standards of Issuance:

                                   1. The outdoor activity will be in compliance with the
                                      provisions of all applicable ordinances, laws and
                                      regulations;

                                   2. The outdoor activity will not create an undue hardship
                                      for an abutter or the general public;

                                   3. The applicant shall be responsible for the payment of a
                                      police coverage deemed necessary by the Chief of
                                      Police as authorized by RSA 105:9; and

                                   4. The applicant will be responsible for any clean up
                                      services deemed necessary by the Director of Public
                                      Works.

                                   5. The Town reserves the right to withdraw the permit for
                                      the outdoor activity at the discretion of the Chief of
                                      Police or his designee based on complaint and due
                                      consideration of the circumstances. Circumstances that
                                      shall warrant consideration permit revocation include:
                                      1) violation of conditions of the permit; 2) disorderly
                                      conduct; or 3) a health or safety emergency requiring
                                      curtailment of the event.

                              TOWN OF HANOVER

                ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN

The Board of Selectmen of Hanover, New Hampshire, ordain as follows:


    PAYMENT OF TOWN TAXES AND FEES BY CREDIT CARD

      1.     DECLARATION OF PURPOSE: In order to allow Hanover citizens
             and other interested individuals the ability to pay Town charges and fees
             by use of a credit card, and pursuant to RSA 80:52-c as authorized by
             Town Meeting in May of 2001, the Hanover Board of Selectmen have
             adopted this ordinance.

      2.     TITLE: This Ordinance shall be known and may be cited as the “Credit
             Card Ordinance of the Town of Hanover”.

      3.     AUTHORITY: RSA 80:52-c and RSA 39.

      4.     PAYMENT OF TOWN TAXES AND FEES BY CREDIT CARD:
             Town charges generated by the use of utility services, and all other Town-
             related fees including parking fines and fees; recreation fees, Town motor
             vehicle registration fees; and dog licenses may be paid with the use of a
             credit card.

      5.     ALLOWABLE CREDIT CARDS: Allowable credit cards will include
             Visa and Master Card.

      6.     SERVICE CHARGES: When credit cards are utilized, the merchant or
             vendor pays a service fee charged by the credit card company. RSA
             80:52-c enables municipalities to require that all individuals utilizing
             credit cards to pay municipal taxes, fines and fees must pay the service fee
             associated with the credit card use so that the community does not bear
             that cost. The Town of Hanover will assess a fee of 2.5% of amount due
             to the Town of Hanover for each credit card transaction.

      7.     CREDIT CARD SERVICE DECLINED: The Town of Hanover will
             require authorization and confirmation from the clearinghouse bank prior
             to accepting a credit card. If, in the remote event, a transaction is
             subsequently declined, the Town of Hanover will work first with its
             merchant services provider, second with the credit card company, and,
             finally, with the cardholder to secure payment.
