As used in this section:
- Shall mean the Two Rivers Water Reclamation Authority.

- CONNECTION DATE
- Shall mean the ninetieth day following the service of a notice from the Borough that a sewer is available to serve as a building except that in the case of a building completed subsequent to the availability of a sewer to the premises on which a building is located, "connection date" shall mean the date of the initial occupancy of the building or the date of the issuance of a certificate of occupancy therefor, whichever of the dates shall be the earlier.
- A property shall be deemed to front on the system if any of its boundaries abut a street or easement at a point opposite a sewer in such a street or easement which is part of a sewer of the authority or where a building is located upon a street or easement in which a sewer is now or hereafter constructed.
- Shall mean any sewer or main designed or used for collection or disposal of sanitary sewage within the Borough.
[2002 Code § 13.08.020]
Every connection required by this section shall be made in a manner to discharge into the sewer, all waste and sanitary sewage originating in the building in accordance with and subject to the rules and regulations as well as sewer system standards heretofore or hereafter adopted by the Authority which connection shall be subject to the right of inspection and approval by the Authority. All connection charges, service charges and inspection fees imposed by the Authority under its rules and regulations or rate schedules, nor or hereafter adopted by the Authority shall be paid promptly when due.
[2002 Code § 13.08.030]
The owner of each building located on property which now or hereafter fronts upon a sewer or is located upon any street in the Borough in which a sewer is now or hereafter constructed shall connect such building and property with the sewer prior to the connection date for the purpose of delivering sewage from each building into the sewer. The connection shall be subject to and in conformity with the rules and regulations and sewer system standards heretofore or hereafter adopted by the Authority regulating and providing for the improvement, maintenance and repair of such connections and prescribing the kind of materials to be used in the original connection and in improving and repairing the same and the method of doing the same. Unless a toilet is already installed therein, every owner of such building shall install at least one toilet therein and connect such building and every toilet therein with the sewer.
[2002 Code § 13.08.040]
The Authority shall have the right to inspect the connections as well as the sanitary sewerage facilities which are used in discharging through such connections into the mains of the Authority, except that the Authority shall charge no fee for inspections or approval of such connections beyond the line of the public right-of-way or easement, in which the main to which such connection is made, is situated.
[2002 Code § 13.08.050]
The Borough Clerk shall mail a notice to connect on a form furnished by the Authority to every owner of a building and property located within the area in the Borough in which a sewer shall have been installed and is ready to receive sewage. The Borough clerk shall mail such notice to connect as soon as possible following receipt of written notification from the Authority, describing the area within which such sewer is available to receive sewage. The Borough Clerk shall forward a list of the names and addresses of the owners upon whom the notice to connect has been served to the authority.
[2002 Code § 13.08.060]
If the owner of any property affected by this section shall neglect, after notice is given to make any such sewer connection or installation of toilet, the Borough may cause such connection or installation to be made under its direction and supervision or award one or more contracts for the making of such improvement, and such sewer connection or installation charge shall bear interest and be a first and paramount lien against the respective property so connected with the sewer to the same extent as assessments for local improvements, and shall be collected and enforced in the same manner.
