Vitrified clay sewer pipe/PVC pipe shall be fitted with watertight couplings having resilient properties and conforming to the current edition of A.S.T.M. Specifications. Before joining the pipe, the bell and spigot surfaces shall be wiped free of dirt or other foreign matter. A lubricant or sealer, as recommended by the pipe manufacturer, shall be applied to the bell and spigot mating surfaces just before they are joined together. The spigot end shall be positioned into the bell end of the pipe previously laid and shall then be shoved home to compress the joint and to assure a tight fit between the interfaces.
H. 
The size and slope of the building sewer shall be subject to the approval of the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator but in no event shall the diameter of the pipe be less than four (4) inches nor the slope less than one-eighth (⅛) inch per foot.

Whenever possible, the building sewer shall be brought to the building at an elevation below the basement floor. The depth shall be sufficient to afford protection from frost. All excavations shall be by open trench methods unless otherwise authorized by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator. Rough machine excavation for the pipe trench shall not be carried lower than three (3) inches above the grade by the invert of the pipe and the remainder of the excavation accomplished by hand to shape the bottom of the trench to give full support to the lower third (3rd) of each pipe. Bell holes shall be dug to provide ample space for making the joint and to relieve the bell of any stresses. All pipe shall be laid true to line and grade with bell ends upstream and with all joints fully completed. No backfill shall be placed over the completed house service line until it has been approved by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator. Backfill shall be carefully deposited completely under the pipe haunches and around and over the pipe in layers not to exceed six (6) inches in loose depth and carefully tamped until enough fill has been placed to provide a cover of not less than one (1) foot over the top of the pipe. Care shall be taken in this placement and compaction to cause no vertical or lateral displacement of the pipe. The remainder of the depth of the trench may be backfilled as approved by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator.

Any connection, drain or arrangement which will permit any such waters to enter any sanitary sewer shall be deemed to be a violation of this Section and this Chapter and shall be immediately remedied or disconnected.
B. 
It shall be unlawful for any person constructing a sewer or house or building connection or an industrial connection to a sanitary sewer to leave such connection open, unsealed or incomplete in such a manner that will permit storm or surface water to enter into any sanitary sewer within the City.

C. 
Stormwater and all other unpolluted drainage shall be discharged into such sewers as are specifically designated as storm sewers or to a drainage channel or natural outlet approved by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator. Industrial cooling water or unpolluted process waters may be discharged, on approval of the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator, to a storm sewer, drainage channel or natural outlet.

Impair the process;
(3) 
Incur treatment cost exceeding those of normal sewage; or
(4) 
Render the water unfit for stream disposal or industrial use. Where discharge of such wastes to a public sewer is not properly pretreated or otherwise corrected, the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator may:
(a) 
Reject the wastes or terminate the sewer service; or
(b) 
Require control of the quantities and rates of the discharge of such wastes.
If the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator permits the pretreatment or equalization of waste flows, the design and installation of the plans and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances and laws.
[Ord. No. 230 §6, 3-13-1989]

B. 
The owner of any property served by a building sewer carrying industrial wastes shall provide and maintain in a suitable accessible location on his/her premises, or such premises occupied by him/her an inspection chamber or manhole into which all wastes from drain, pipe channel or connection which communicates with any sewer or sewerage works of the City shall discharge unless specifically exempt in writing by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator. Such manhole or inspection chamber shall be of such design and construction which will facilitate observation, sampling and measurement of the wastes and will prevent infiltration by ground and surface waters. Such manholes shall be accessible and safely located, shall be constructed by the owner at his/her expense in accordance with plans approved by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator and shall be maintained by the owner at his/her expense.
C. 
All measurements, tests and analyses of the characteristics of water and wastes to which reference is made in this Chapter shall be determined in accordance with the latest edition of "Standard Methods For The Examination of Water and Wastewater" published by the American Public Health Association and shall be determined at the control manhole provided or upon suitable samples taken at said control manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been required by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator, the control manhole shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected. Sampling shall be carried out by customarily accepted methods to reflect the effect of constituents upon the sewage works and to determine the existence of hazards to life, limb and property.
D. 
Sampling of the effluent or waste discharges may be accomplish manually or by use of mechanical equipment to obtain a composite sample which would be representative of the total effluent. Samples shall be taken at intervals determined by the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator as necessary to maintain a control over the discharge from the establishment. The City shall have the right to enter and set up on company property such devices or equipment necessary to conduct a gauging and sampling operation and to begin such operation upon presentation of proper identification on arrival without advance notice to the company. Investigations or inquiries upon industrial discharges shall only pertain to items having effects upon the sanitary sewer system.
[Ord. No. 230 §8, 3-13-1989]

The Water/Wastewater Plant Operator or his/her representatives shall have no authority to inquire into any processes including metallurgical, chemical, oil, refining, ceramic, paper or other industries beyond that point having a direct bearing on the kind and source of discharge to the sewers or waterway or facilities for waste treatment.
B. 
While performing the necessary work on private properties referred to above, the Water/Wastewater Plant Operator or duly authorized employees or representatives of the City shall observe all safety rules applicable to the premises established by the company and the company shall be held harmless for injury or death to the City employees or representatives and the City shall indemnify the company against loss or damage to its property by City employees or representatives and against liability claims and demands for personal injury or property damage asserted against the company and growing out of the gauging and sampling operations, except as such may be caused by negligence or failure of the company to maintain safe conditions as required in Section 710.070(B) above.
C. 
The Water/Wastewater Plant Operator or duly authorized employees or representatives of the City bearing proper credentials and identification shall be permitted to enter all private properties through which the City holds duly negotiated easement for the purpose of, but not limited to, inspection, observation, measurement, sampling, repair and maintenance of any portion of the sewerage works lying within said easement. All entry and subsequent work, if any, on said easement shall be done in full accordance with the terms of the duly negotiated easement pertaining to the private property involved.
