Where a public sewer is not available, under the provisions of § 121-11, the building lateral shall be connected to a private wastewater disposal system complying with the provisions of the rules and regulations of the NYSDOH, to be enforced by the Superintendent, and/or the County Health Department.
No two separate permanent buildings, where the intended use for either is for a distinct and separate business or a dwelling place for a private family or families, shall be connected to the same individual septic tank and tile absorption field.
A completed application form, containing results of percolation tests, computations, and a plot plan, including the design and cross-section of the wastewater disposal system, in relation to lot lines, adjacent and on-site well or water supply, and buildings, shall be submitted to the Village. A fee, established by Article XII, shall accompany the application. The wastewater disposal system shall be designed by a professional engineer, licensed surveyor, or architect, and shall be in accordance with the NYSDOH Standards for Waste Treatment Works, or NYSDEC Standards for Commercial and Institutional Facilities, as appropriate.
A written construction permit shall be obtained from the Superintendent before construction commencement. The Superintendent, or his designated representative, shall be permitted to inspect the construction work at any stage, without prior notice.
When the liquid or liquid-borne effluent from a private wastewater disposal system enters any watercourse, ditch, storm sewer, or water supply system, located in the Village, in such a manner, volume, and concentration so as to create a hazardous, offensive, or objectionable condition, in the opinion of the Superintendent, the County Health Department, or the NYSDOH, the owner of the premises upon which such wastewater disposal system is located, upon receiving written notice from the Superintendent, to do so, shall, within 90 days, after receipt of such notice, repair, rebuild, or relocate such wastewater disposal system for the purpose of eliminating such hazardous, offensive, or objectionable conditions. The repair, rebuilding, or relocation of the system shall be accomplished in accordance with the rules and regulations of the NYSDOH and the County Health Department, at the owner's expense.
The owner shall operate and maintain the private wastewater disposal system in a satisfactory manner at all times, at the owner's expense.
Where a private wastewater disposal system utilizes a cesspool or a septic tank, septage shall be removed from the cesspool or septic tank, by a licensed hauler of trucked and hauled wastes, at three-year intervals or more frequently.
At such time that a public sewer becomes available to a property, a direct connection shall be made to the public sewer, in compliance with this Part 1, and any cesspool, septic tank, and similar wastewater disposal facilities shall be cleaned of septage, by a licensed septage hauler, and finally either filled with clean sand, bank-run gravel, or dirt, or removed and properly disposed. When the connection is made to the public sewer, the connection to the private wastewater disposal facility shall be broken and both ends of the break shall be plugged, as appropriate. Alternatively, the septic tank effluent may be piped or pumped to the sewer; the owner shall provide an easement to the septic tank for septage removal.
No statement in this article shall be construed to prevent, or interfere with, any additional requirements that may be deemed necessary by the Superintendent, to protect public health and public welfare.
