  204.618.  Surveys and general plan for construction, duty of the board — agreements authorized — contracts permitted — additional powers. — 1.  It shall be the duty of the board of trustees of a reorganized common sewer district to make the necessary surveys and to lay out and define the general plan for the construction and acquisition of land, rights-of-way, and necessary sewers and treatment facilities, and of any extensions, expansions, or improvements within the district.

  2.  The board of trustees of a reorganized common sewer district may enter into agreements with each municipality, subdistrict, private district, sewer corporation, or any industrial user that discharges sewage into trunk sewers, streams, or the treatment facilities of the reorganized common sewer district concerning the locations and the manner in which sewage may be discharged into the district system or streams within the district and concerning the permissible content of acid wastes, alkaline wastes, poisonous wastes, oils, grit, or other wastes that might be hazardous or detrimental to the system.  If no agreement is obtained with regard to any such matter, the trustees shall refer the dispute to the clean water commission.  The determination of the commission shall be binding upon the district, municipality, subdistrict, sewer corporation, or private district.  Each municipality, subdistrict, sewer corporation, or private district shall control the discharge of wastes into its collection sewers to the extent necessary to comply with the agreement or the determination of the clean water commission.  The board of trustees of a reorganized common sewer district or the governing body of any municipality, subdistrict, private district, sewer corporation, or industrial user discharging sewage into the stream or the system may petition the circuit court that decreed the incorporation of the district for an order enforcing compliance with any provision of such an agreement or determination.  That circuit court shall have jurisdiction in all cases or questions arising out of the organization or operations of the district, or from the acts of the board of trustees.

  3.  The board of trustees may contract with each participating community for the payment of its proportionate share of treatment costs.

  4.  The board of trustees may contract with public agencies, individuals, private corporations, sewer corporation, and political subdivisions inside and outside the reorganized common sewer district to permit them to connect with and use the district's facilities according to such terms, conditions, and rates as the board determines are in the interest of the district and regardless of whether such agencies, individuals, corporations, sewer corporations, and subdivisions are in the same natural drainage area or basins as the district.  However, if such an area is located within the boundaries of an existing common sewer district or reorganized common sewer district organized and existing under this chapter, a sewer district organized and existing under chapter 249, a public water supply district organized under chapter 247, or a sewer corporation, the board of trustees must give written notice to said district or sewer corporation before such a contract is entered into, and the district or sewer corporation must consent to said contract.

  5.  The board of trustees may refuse to receive any wastes into the sewage system that do not meet relevant state or federal water pollution, solid waste, or pretreatment standards.

  6.  The board of trustees shall have all of the powers necessary and convenient to provide for the operation, maintenance, administration, and regulation, including the adoption of rules and regulations, of any individual home sewage or business treatment systems within the jurisdiction of the common sewer district.

  7.  The board of trustees shall have all of the powers necessary and convenient to provide for the operation and maintenance of its treatment facilities and the administration, regulation, and enforcement of its pretreatment program, including the adoption of rules and regulations to carry out its powers with respect to all municipalities, subdistricts, districts, sewer corporations, and industrial users that discharge into the collection system of the district's sewer system or treatment facilities.  These powers include, but are not limited to:

  (1)  The promulgation of any rule, regulation, or ordinance;

  (2)  The issuance, modification, or revocation of any order;

  (3)  The issuance, modification, or revocation of any permit;

  (4)  Commencing an action through counsel for appropriate legal or equitable relief in the circuit court that decreed the district's incorporation against any industrial user in violation of the district's rules, regulations, and ordinances or any permit or order issued.

  8.  The board of trustees may adopt rules and regulations creating procedural remedies for all persons affected by any order or permit issued, modified, or revoked by the board including but not limited to the grant of reasonable time periods for such persons to respond and to show cause.

  9.  Whenever any reference is made in this section to any action that may be taken by the board of trustees, such reference includes such action by its executive officer under powers and duties delegated to such executive officer by the board of trustees.
