[Adopted 3-9-1998 by Ord. No. 1998-3]
It shall be unlawful for any owner or occupant of any dwelling or other building now or hereinafter constructed, which is located upon any street in which a sanitary sewer is now or hereinafter constructed, to discharge wastewater, or to cause, permit or allow wastewater to be discharged, from said dwelling or other building into the soil or into any other place other than the sanitary sewer in the street upon which the said dwelling or other building is located.
The owner of any dwelling or other building now or hereinafter constructed from which any wastewater can be discharged or which has been certified for occupancy, and which is located upon any street in which a sanitary sewer is now or hereinafter constructed, shall cause such necessary piping to be installed and such connection with the sanitary sewer to be made, in order to provide a method of discharging all wastewater from the dwelling or other building directly into the sanitary sewer.
The connection of such building or other dwelling with the sanitary sewer shall be made either:
Prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, in the event that the dwelling or other building is hereinafter constructed upon any street in which a sanitary sewer then exists;
Within 60 days after the completion of the sanitary sewer, in the event that the sanitary sewer is hereinafter constructed in the street upon which a dwelling or other such building than exists; or
Within 60 days of the effective date of this article, for dwellings or other buildings now constructed upon any street in which a sanitary sewer now exists.
If the owner of any property shall fail to make the installation of piping and the connection of the dwelling or other building to the sanitary sewer as is required by this article within the time required herein, the City may proceed to make such installation or connection or cause the same to be made pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:48-3 and may, thereafter, either recover the costs from the owner in an action at law, or impose a charge for such costs pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40A:26A-10 and assess such costs as a first lien on the property pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40A:26A-12, or take such other enforcement action as may be granted to the City by law.
Connections to sewers and the use thereof shall be subject to such regulations as may be promulgated by the Bordentown Sewerage Authority.
