Whenever the commissioner finds that effluent limitations under a discharge permit,
issued pursuant to P.L.1977, c. 74 (C. 58:10A-1 et seq.), are being exceeded by a county or municipal utilities authority organized pursuant
to P.L.1957, c. 183 (C. 40:14B-1 et seq.), which provides disposal or discharge but not treatment of the effluent of one or
more municipal treatment works, and the commissioner further finds that the violation
of the effluent limitation is caused by effluents discharged by one or more municipal treatment works into the
disposal facilities of the county or municipal utilities authority, the commissioner
shall, in accordance with the provisions of subsection a. of section 10 of P.L.1977,
c. 74 (C. 58:10A-10), issue an order for compliance to, or take such other action authorized thereunder
against, the owner or operator of the municipal treatment works determined to be discharging
pollutants into the utilities authority's facilities in violation of the discharge
permit limitations of the municipal treatment works. The commissioner shall prescribe uniform sampling and reporting requirements for
the county or municipal utilities authority and each of the municipal treatment works
discharging effluents into the disposal facilities of the authority for the purpose
of determining the source and extent of violation of permit requirements.
