(1) As an alternative remedy to that provided in PMC 13.70.300, any person found to be violating any provision of PMC 13.70.270 or other violations which in the determination of the Director do not constitute an immediate threat to safety or integrity of the sewer system, may be served by the City with written notice stating the nature of the violation and demand for abatement. Within 10 days of the receipt of this notice, an acknowledgement of the violation and a written plan for the satisfactory correction and prevention thereof, to include specific required actions, shall be submitted to the Director. Submission of this plan in no way relieves the violator of liability for any violations occurring before or after receipt of the notice of violation.

(2) A notice of civil infraction may be issued pursuant to Chapter 1.40 PMC to any person failing to respond within the specified time above or failing to make the corrections identified in the notice or in the written plan for compliance. Hearing on the notice of civil infraction shall be heard before the Pasco Code Enforcement Board as provided in Chapter 1.40 PMC.

(3) The provisions of this section are not exclusive and may be used in addition to other enforcement provisions authorized by this code except as may be precluded by law. Nothing herein shall be construed to supersede any state regulation affecting the subject matter of this chapter, nor limit or assume the responsibilities of any state agency, including the Washington State Department of Ecology, having jurisdiction over the subject matter of this chapter.
