hereunder, or any other pretreatment standard or requirement, or
that the user's past violations are likely to recur, the
Superintendent may issue an order to the user directing it to cease
and desist all such violations and directing the user to:
A.
Immediately comply with all requirements.
Take such appropriate remedial or preventive action
as may be needed to properly address a continuing or

receiving stream, or endangerment to any individuals.

endangerment has passed, unless the termination
