If a violation shall be found to exist, the permit authority or its authorized representative shall by written order direct that such remedial action be taken forthwith as will result in full compliance with the applicable regulations; provided, however, that the issuance of such order shall in no way or manner be deemed a prerequisite to the institution of such enforcement proceedings as are set forth in the regulations; and provided further, that compliance with such order shall not necessarily be deemed to be a defense to any alleged violation of this or other applicable regulations in any court action instituted seeking full compliance therewith.
