[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Yorkville 7-10-2018 by L.L. No. 4-2018.[1] Amendments noted where applicable.]
Editor's Note: This local law also superseded former Ch. 107, Sewers, adopted 5-23-1917, as amended.
No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged groundwater or stormwater into the sanitary sewers by way of a sump pump or other methods.
Interceptors and separators shall be provided to prevent the discharge of oil, grease, sand and other substances harmful or hazardous to the public sewer, the private sewage system or the sewage treatment plant or processes.
[Added at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I)]
Building lateral/street lateral connection.
The connection of the building lateral to an existing street lateral shall be made at the property line. Except as provided under this chapter, if a street lateral has not previously been provided, the street lateral will be constructed from the existing public sewer to the property line at the owner's expense. The street lateral shall be installed with a properly sealed and covered cleanout to grade located at the property.
All costs and expenses incidental to the installation and connection of the building lateral shall be borne by the property owner.
The property owner shall indemnify the Village from any loss or damage that may directly or indirectly be occasioned by the installation of the building lateral.
The property owner is responsible for the maintenance and repair, including all costs, of the lateral and connections from the building to the public sewer.
The method of connection of the building lateral to the street lateral will be dependent upon the type of sewer pipe material and, in all cases, shall be approved by the Highway Superintendent.
Cleanout repair/replacement. If, in the judgement of the Highway Superintendent, it is determined that a building lateral, without the property line cleanout, needs repair or replacement, the Village may require that the owner install a cleanout at the property line at the property owner's expense, such that the street lateral can be maintained independently of the building lateral.
Street lateral replacement; ownership. Any existing street lateral which, upon examination by the Highway Superintendent, is determined to be in need of replacement will be replaced with a new street lateral with a property line cleanout. The cost of constructing the replacement street lateral and cleanout shall be at the property owner's expense.
In addition to compliance with the provisions of this chapter, all persons and property within the Village must also comply with any and all applicable Oneida County sewer use rules and regulations.
Connections to and the use of sewers in the Village of Yorkville shall at all times be in compliance with the Town of Whitestown and Oneida County Sewer Rules and Regulations, or as may be hereafter amended and supplemented. Such rules are hereby incorporated herein by reference.
[Added at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I)]
Any person who shall commit an offense against any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be punishable as provided in Chapter 1, General Provisions, Article II.
