It shall be unlawful for any person to place, deposit or permit to be deposited in any unsanitary manner on public or private property within the Milo Sewer District(s) or extension thereto of the Town, or in any area under the jurisdiction of said district, any human excrement, garbage or other objectionable waste.
It shall be unlawful to discharge to any natural outlet within the Milo Sewer District, extension thereto or in any area under the jurisdiction of said district, any sewage or other polluted waters.
It shall be unlawful to construct or maintain any privy, privy vault, or other facility intended or used for the disposal of sewage except as herein provided.
A. 
The area covered by Milo Sewer District will be served by a pressure sewage collection and conveyance system. Each residence or building generating sanitary sewage, gray water or commercial/industrial wastewater (hereinafter referred to as "building") within the Sewer District shall be served by an individual grinder pump and pressure lateral connected to the mainline force main or sewer.
B. 
Connection to the system is mandatory. For those buildings in existence at commencement of the sewer construction (date of issuance of the "notice to proceed"), the Town will provide, install on the owner's property, and maintain, a grinder pump and pressure lateral connecting to the mainline sewer. The Town will connect one lateral to the grinder pump and make an electric connection to the owner's electric service (see § 279-9 for cost of installation and connection of buildings constructed after commencement of sewer construction as described herein).
C. 
The property owner will have the option of making an internal electric connection (in accordance with Town standards) from the Town's mounted exterior pump control box to the interior panel box at his own expense. The owner shall provide and pay for all electric costs for operating the grinder pump through his electric meter/bill. Any property owner not having an existing electric service adequate for the operation of the grinder pump shall be required to promptly upgrade said service to meet current code and provide for operation of the grinder pump.
D. 
The Town shall also decommission one septic tank or treatment unit and any dry well associated therewith for those buildings in existence at commencement of the sewer construction as described above. Prior to the installation of the grinder pump system on the owner's property, the Town and property owner must have entered into an agreement (easement) concerning the installation and maintenance of the aforedescribed grinder pump system. Said easement will be recorded in the Yates County Clerk's office.
E. 
If a lot of record has more than one sewage source (examples: separate gray water disposal or additional secondary septic systems), it shall be the responsibility of the property owner to convey (pipe and/or pump and pipe) the secondary source of sewage to the grinder pump. This must be done to the satisfaction of the Watershed Inspector.
F. 
Areas of Milo may also be served by a gravity type sewage collection and conveyance system.
