The mains and pipes of any individual, partnership or corporation now or hereafter laid in and under the public streets and alleys of the Borough shall be inspected under direction of the Street Committee at least three times in every year to the end that the same may be kept in a safe and proper condition and the public and property may be protected and safeguarded; in addition to the duties already prescribed and notwithstanding like duties imposed on other officers and committees of this Borough, it shall be the duty of the Borough policemen and Borough official and those working under them to keep constant watch on such pipes and mains and report to the Street Committee and to the owners (or, if possible, make immediate temporary repairs or relief) any defects in the surfaces above said pipes and mains and breaks in the same to the end that persons and property may be guarded and saved from damage and highways may be preserved safe, passable, secure and unobstructed and the Borough may be protected from liability for damages by reason of defects. Said officers and employees shall report leaks, unfilled ditches and other obstructions and shall display danger signals when necessary if the same are not done by the owners.
Every person owning pipelines and mains under and along the streets, alleys or highways in the Borough shall, after 30 days' written notice by the Council that the Council is about to pave or repave any street or portion hereof, lay service lines from said mains under the street to be paved, at intervals of 50 feet to both curbs thereof, to the end that any future disturbance of such paving for such purposes may be avoided.
