PART II
SAMPLING POINTS

Establishment and Elimination of Sampling Points

8. (1) Each discharger shall, by February 23, 1994, establish a sampling point on each process effluent and cooling water effluent stream at the discharger’s plant, as necessary so that the plant loadings calculated under sections 12 and 13 for each limited parameter and assessment parameter and the concentrations determined for each specific parameter accurately reflect the level of discharge of each such parameter from the plant.  O. Reg. 760/93, s. 8 (1).

(1.1) Each discharger for the Thunder Bay Packaging Inc. plant shall, by December 20, 1995, establish a sampling point on each process effluent and cooling water effluent stream at the discharger’s plant, as necessary so that the plant loadings calculated under sections 12 and 13 for each limited parameter and assessment parameter and the concentrations determined for each specific parameter accurately reflect the level of discharge of each such parameter from the plant.

(1.2) A discharger referred to in subsection (1.1) need not comply with subsection (1).  O. Reg. 521/95, s. 5.

(2) If circumstances change so that a new sampling point is necessary at a discharger’s plant in order to permit the calculation of plant loadings under sections 12 and 13 for each limited parameter and assessment parameter and the determination of concentrations for each specific parameter that accurately reflect the level of discharge of each such parameter from the plant, the discharger shall, within thirty days of the change, establish the new sampling point.

(3) A discharger may eliminate a sampling point established under subsection (1) or (2) if the sampling point is no longer necessary to permit the calculation of plant loadings under sections 12 and 13 for each limited parameter and assessment parameter and the determination of concentrations for each specific parameter that accurately reflect the level of discharge of each such parameter from the plant.

(4) For the purposes of this section, a plant loading for a parameter or a concentration for a parameter that is based on analytical results that are significantly affected by dilution or masking due to the merging of streams upstream of a sampling point at a plant is not a loading or a concentration that accurately reflects the level of discharge of the parameter from the plant.

(5) In determining what is necessary to meet a discharger’s obligations to establish sampling points under this section, the discharger shall consider both which streams should have sampling points and where on a stream a sampling point should be located.  O. Reg. 760/93, s. 8 (2-5).

(6) Despite subsection (1), a discharger need not establish a sampling point on a by-pass.  O. Reg. 521/95, s. 5.
