[HISTORY: Adopted City of Norwalk Common Council 11-14-1972. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No person or persons shall take water from any river, brook or stream, or any lake, pond or like body of water, for the purpose of filling or replenishing the tank of any vehicle employed in the spraying of trees, shrubs or other vegetation with chemical or biochemical or other solutions unless the equipment to be used therefor shall have been inspected and approved by the Director of Health of the City of Norwalk.
Such equipment shall consist of a pump, other than the pump used in the spraying process, to be employed solely for drawing water, and hoses, pipes, valves, connections or conduits completely separate from those used in the spraying process, and shall deliver the water drawn through a check valve to an open port at the top of the tank or tanks which are being filled or replenished. Upon approval of the equipment, the Director shall issue a certificate of inspection and approval valid for one year after the date of issue, which certificate shall be displayed upon the vehicle at all times.
The issuance of such certificate by the Director of Health shall evidence approval of the equipment only, and nothing herein contained shall be deemed to be an authorization to the licensee to take water from any source.
Any person who shall take water for the purpose of spraying except with equipment approved as hereinabove provided shall be fined not more than $250 for each such offense.
