A. 
Written application for privilege of connection must be filed with the Superintendent of Public Works upon a printed form obtained from him, accompanied by the payment of a permit fee as set forth in Chapter 133, Fees.

A. 
Each building fronting on a public way or a public sewer right-of-way must be connected separately and independently with the public sewer through the house connection branch provided therefor in front of the building or nearest in the downstream direction.
B. 
Where one building stands in the rear of another building, without sewer frontage of its own, and no other outlet is practicable, the house sewer from the front building may be extended to the rear building and the whole will be considered as one house sewer. In no other case will groupings of buildings upon one house sewer be permitted, save by special recorded act of the Board of Health taken for cogent sanitary reasons.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
Old house sewers may be used in connection with new buildings or new plumbing only when they are found, on examination and test, to conform in all respects to the requirements governing new house sewers as prescribed in this article. If the old work is found to be defective, the owner, under the direction of the Sewer Inspector, must make whatever changes are necessary to bring the work into conformity with the requirements of this article or else he must lay a new house sewer. The testing shall be done by the television camera method, video recording with narrative, the cost of which shall be borne by the owner or builder for new construction.
A. 
No house sewer or house drain serving fewer than 60 people may be of any diameter other than four inches, save under special written and recorded permission of the Board of Health and the Mayor and Borough Council, granted for good reason, but if any house sewer or house drain is located so that it will carry regularly the wastes of 60 people or more, pipe five inches in diameter may be installed if the Sewer Inspector so directs.
B. 
No pipe may be reduced in size in its progress toward the public sewer, nor may a five-inch house sewer be connected through a four-inch connection branch in the public sewer, nor may the public sewer be broken into for entry of a five-inch house sewer, but, in such case, two or more lengths of the public sewer shall be taken out, and a new house connection branch having a five-inch side Y-inlet shall be installed in the public sewer, and it and its adjoining closure pieces shall be sealed securely and accurately in place, all joints being made watertight, under the immediate supervision and to the satisfaction of the Sewer Instructor.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
All materials must be of the best quality, new and free from defects, subject to the inspection of and acceptable to the Sewer Inspector. Should any dispute arise regarding the quality of materials, a decision shall be made in accordance with the Standard Specifications of the American Society for Testing and Materials.[1]

Editor's Note: Original Section 14, which immediately followed this section and dealt with the use of vitrified pipe, was deleted 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538.
A. 
All cast-iron pipes and fittings must be sound, cylindrical and smooth internally, free from cracks, sand, holes or other defects, of uniform thickness and of the grade known in commerce as "extra-heavy."
B. 
For all interior work, it must be uncoated, but where it is buried in the ground outside of buildings, it must be thoroughly covered with a coating durable, smooth, glossy, hard, tough, waterproof, immune to attack by acids or salts found in the soil and strongly adhesive to the iron under all circumstances.
All lead used in caulking must be pure, soft, new pig. The use of caulking lead containing old solder joints is prohibited.
All oakum used in caulking cast-iron pipe must be of the best quality hand-picked. The use of paper or rags in making lead-caulked joints is prohibited.
A. 
If a house sewer discharges into a cesspool or vault, a running trap, with bore of the same diameter as the house sewer, with a four-inch cleanout hub on the house side of the water seal, fitted with a four-inch extra-heavy iron ferrule and heavy brass trap screw, should be placed in the house drain at an accessible point near the house wall.
B. 
When such a house sewer is to be connected to a public sewer, the running trap must be removed. In building a new house sewer to be connected at once with the public sewer, this running trap must be removed. There must be no obstruction to the free flow of air through the whole course of the house sewer, house drain and soil line from the street sewer to the open terminus above the roof of the building served. Any person offending as above shall be subject to the penalties of this article and shall, in addition, pay the costs of rectifying the damage done.
C. 
No grease trap may be installed in any part of any house plumbing system connected or to be connected with a public sewer without special written permission from the Mayor and Borough Council.[1]

Editor's Note: Original Section 19, which immediately followed this section and dealt with the opening of trenches, was deleted 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
At least 24 hours before beginning any work upon house sewers or connection, the master plumber must notify the Sewer Inspector of his intention to commence, and no materials may be used and no work done without the latter's inspection and approval.
A. 
No house sewer may be laid within five feet of any wall of any building or through any abandoned well or cistern or cesspool or through filled or unstable soil or less than 30 inches underground from the outside top of the barrel of the pipe. The house sewer must be of extra-heavy cast-iron pipe bedded as the Sewer Inspector may direct and, if shallow, held in place by concrete frost-anchors.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
B. 
The use of cast-iron pipe for house sewers is also compulsory if the proposed line is to lie, in any part of its course, below maximum groundwater level, as determined by the Sewer Inspector, or if connection is to be made with a cast-iron public sewer.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
C. 
The trench must be carefully excavated and graded so that each pipe shall be firmly supported on a bed of undisturbed ground for at least 80% of the length of its barrel, pockets being scooped as the line is laid to receive the bells and to permit the making of tight joints and thorough joint inspection. If rock is encountered, it must be removed to a depth of at least three inches below the true grade line. If a foundation is poor, unstable soil must be removed. In either case, or if the trench in error is cut too low, the bottom of the trench must be brought to grade with gravel, coarse sand, hard cinders or other good material, well rammed until the bed is firm, all to the satisfaction of the Sewer Inspector.
D. 
House sewers must be laid as nearly as possible in a straight line. Necessary changes of direction must be made with appropriate long-sweep curved pipe or fittings. All joints must be concentric to prevent intrusion of jointing material into the bore of the pipe. The interior of each pipe shall be carefully cleaned with a close-fitting swab or follower drawn through, pipe by pipe, as the line is laid. Cast-iron pipe shall be gasketed. The ditch must in all cases be kept dry during the pipe laying and, if cement is used, until the cement has acquired a hard set.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
E. 
In removing the seal of the side inlet of a public sewer Y-branch, the greatest care must be taken to avoid breakage of the inlet hub and to prevent the entrance of sand or dirt or fragments of the sealing material into either the house sewer or the public sewer.
Any fitting or connection which introduces into any sewage conduit any enlargement, chamber or recess or any projection, ledge or shoulder or which reduces the conduit area in the direction of flow is prohibited.
A. 
No house sewer connecting or to be connected with a public sewer shall be laid with a grade of less than one inch of fall in four feet, save by special written permission from the Sewer Inspector specifying the minimum grade that will be permitted.
B. 
Grades must be true, uniform as far as possible from the house drain to the street sewer and determined by measuring down from an overhead line set to a true gradient by the Sewer Inspector or checked by him. Wherever a change of direction occurs, the curved fitting making it shall be set with its outlet end 1/2 inch lower than its inlet end to compensate for lost velocity to extra friction.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538][1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Original Section 24, which immediately followed this section and dealt with the sealing of the inlet ends of house sewers, was deleted 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538.
A. 
No sewer connection branch shall be opened, no pipe shall be laid and no joint shall be made save in the presence and under the direction of the Sewer Inspector or his duly authorized representative.
B. 
Before any portion of the line is covered and before connection with the public sewer is made, the Sewer Inspector shall apply such tests as are necessary, in his judgment, to prove the absolute tightness of the pipe and its joints and the adequacy of the line in all other respects.
C. 
When house sewers are constructed in localities where invasion of groundwater is to be apprehended, the Sewer Inspector, at his discretion, may require that the tightness of the line be proved by filling the open trench with water and subjecting the pipe and joints to external hydraulic pressure. Resulting leakage, indicated by flow into and through the house sewer pipe, will call for effective repairs.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
D. 
Equipment, material, power and labor necessary for testing, as required by the Sewer Inspector, shall be furnished by and at the expense of the plumber.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
A. 
Any defects developed by the tests must be remedied within three days to the satisfaction of the Sewer Inspector, and the entire work must be retested as though no previous test had been made.
B. 
For each test made necessary by the finding of defects, the Sewer Inspector, before granting approval, shall charge and collect and give receipt for the sum as set forth in Chapter 133, Fees.
[Amended 6-7-1950 by Ord. No. 628; 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
C. 
No house sewer may be used until all defects have been remedied and the entire tributary system has been made to conform to the full requirements of this article and has, in addition, been officially approved by the Board of Health of the Borough.
[Amended 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538]
Plumbers must report to the Sewer Inspector, in writing, with a full description of circumstances and within 12 hours, the finding by them of all obstructions in house sewers or the presence therein of any substances prohibited by this article. Failure to report will render the person, firm or corporation so offending liable to the penalties in § 222-25 for each failure so to report. When multiple stoppages occur within the same house sewer, a television video inspection with narrative will be done to the pipe to determine the necessary repairs.[1]

Editor's Note: Original Section 28, which immediately followed this section and dealt with amendments to the regulations, was deleted 5-29-1990 by Ord. No. 1538.
All fees for permits, inspections and reinspections provided for by this article shall be paid to the Borough of Hasbrouck Heights.
[Added 6-27-2000 by Ord. No. 1904]
A. 
In addition to any other requirements, restrictions or prohibitions contained in this article, commencing on July 1, 2000, no person, firm or corporation shall install, repair, alter or operate any connection to or sewerage facility connected to the public sewer serving any commercial premises upon which food is prepared, cooked, processed, served or consumed (excluding such premises serving fully prepared food intended for consumption off premises) or any noncommercial premises accommodating the service of food (such as cafeterias) for consumption by more than 20 persons at one time unless such facilities or connections have been inspected, approved and licensed as hereinafter provided.
B. 
The owners or operators of any premises described in Subsection A of this section, either before undertaking any installation, repair or alteration described in Subsection A hereof or before the change in ownership or operation of the premises described in Subsection A hereof, and annually by June 1, 2000, and thereafter by June 1 of every year, shall make application to the Borough Sewer Inspector (who, pursuant to § 222-2 of this chapter is the Superintendent of Public Works) upon such form as he shall devise, approve and provide, for the issuance of an annual license for the installation, alteration or continued use of any sewerage facilities connected to or any connection with the public sewer, which license shall be valid from its issuance to the following 30th day of June unless such license is revoked or suspended as hereinafter provided. The said application shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable inspection and application fee as set forth in Chapter 133, Fees. Such fee and application shall be filed with the Sewer Inspector through the offices of the Borough Clerk.
C. 
Between June 1 and June 30 of every year hereafter, the Sewer Inspector shall make a full and complete inspection of all sewerage facilities and connections to the public sewer upon any premises for which a license is sought hereunder and shall issue such license upon a determination that the installation, alteration, extension, repair, maintenance, use and operation of those facilities and/or connections comply in full with each of the following:
(1) 
The Plumbing Subcode of the State Uniform Construction Code.
(2) 
All of the applicable terms and conditions of this chapter.
(3) 
All of the applicable terms and conditions of the current rules and regulations for the direct and indirect discharge of wastewater promulgated by the Bergen County Utilities Authority.
(4) 
The additional conditions imposed upon the subject premises under this section.
(5) 
In addition to any and all of the conditions otherwise imposed upon the subject premises, no license as provided herein shall be issued unless and until there is installed within the sewerage facilities thereupon, in the drain line of any such facility into which there is deposited any solid waste from the preparation, cooking, or processing of food, a device which mechanically skims or traps grease particles from the waste water so as to prevent those particles from entering the public sewer system to such extent as is reasonably possible; such devices are commonly known as "grease interceptors" or "grease traps." Each such device shall be of such specification and capacity and shall be operated, maintained, and cleaned in accordance with the specifications of the manufacturer, if any, and in such a manner and with such frequency as may be otherwise required by the Plumbing Subcode, the above-referred to rules and regulations of the Bergen County Utilities Authority, the terms of this chapter and the reasonable requirements of the Sewer Inspector which he is hereby empowered to impose in his own discretion in relation to the size of the premises and the nature and extent of its operations.
D. 
In addition to any of the aforesaid requirements, the owner and the operator of any premises subject to this license shall be responsible for the maintenance of a permanent written log concisely setting forth the date and time of, and a description of, the installation, repair, alteration, replacement or maintenance of any grease trap or grease interceptor referred to in Subsection C(5) hereof, as well as a description, including date and time, of waste removed from such devices and the manner of its disposal. Such log shall be kept upon the premises and immediately available to any of the Inspectors referred to herein. Any claimed maintenance not so entered on the log shall be presumed to have not occurred.
E. 
In addition to any of the aforesaid requirements, the premises subject to this license shall be open to provide the inspection of its sanitary sewerage facilities to the Sewer Inspector, the Plumbing Subcode Official of this Borough, the Health Officer of this Borough or the Inspector duly authorized by the Bergen County Utilities Authority at any time without notice but not more frequently than one time per week for each such inspector. In the event that any such inspection discloses that any sanitary sewerage facility or connection to the public sewer has been installed, altered, extended, repaired or maintained in any manner contrary to the requirements of this section or those laws, ordinances or regulations to which this section refers, the operator of the premises shall, upon notice of such violation, alter, repair or clean the same as may be necessary to obtain conformity with the said requirements within 12 hours of such notice. In the event that the Sewer Inspector determines that such violation found by any of the above-referred-to inspectors creates a public health hazard or presents a risk of damage to the public sewer, he shall suspend the license issued hereunder and order the premises closed to the public until the correction of all such violations is accomplished to his reasonable satisfaction. If, after such suspension, the correction is not made within 12 hours or such additional period of time as the Sewer Inspector may find reasonable to extend for the correction of violations, the license issued hereunder shall be revoked and the premises shall be closed to the public until an application is made for the reinstatement of that license in the same manner and upon the same form and fee as required to obtain the annual license and until the Sewer Inspector has reinspected the premises and determined that all violations have been fully abated and/or corrected.
