The owner(s) of all houses, buildings, or properties used for human occupancy, employment, recreation, or other purposes situated within the Village and abutting on any street, alley, or right-of-way in which there is now located or may in the future be located a public sewer is hereby required, at the owner's expense, to install suitable sanitary facilities therein and to connect such facilities directly to the proper public sewer, in accordance with the provisions of this chapter, within 90 days after official notice to do so, provided that said public sewer is within 100 feet (30.5 meters) of the property line.

The Village Board, on the recommendation of the Superintendent, shall have the authority to enter into agreements to accept sewage and other wastes, including industrial wastes, generated by or discharged from persons outside the service area of the POTW.
If the person is a municipality, that municipality shall have enacted a sewer use law as restrictive on the discharge of sewage and other wastes as the restrictions contained in this chapter.

At the recommendation of the Superintendent, who determines that one or more segments of the POTW are exceeding their hydraulic capacity at any time or any specific purpose of this chapter is being violated, the Village Board shall have the authority to limit or deny new connections to the POTW until the conditions leading to the moratorium are corrected. Such correction may be by:
