No connections shall be made to a sanitary or to a combined sewer, which connections are intended to discharge inflow. Such prohibited connections include, but are not limited to, footing drains, roof leaders, roof drains, cellar drains, sump pumps, catch basins, uncontaminated cooling water discharges, or other sources of inflow.
For properties where separate storm sewers are available or where, in the judgment of the DR, sufficient natural drainage is available, connections which contribute inflow to the sanitary sewers must be disconnected in a fashion approved by the Town Board, prior to the sale of the property.
Upon notice from the Tax Assessor, the DR shall inspect any newly sold property for the purpose of determining if storm sewers or natural drainage is available, and, if so, if all connections which contribute inflow have been disconnected.
It shall be a willful violation of this chapter for any person to reconnect any inflow source which has been disconnected pursuant to this article.
The Town Board is enabled to take whatever action is necessary to determine the amount of inflow, including the requirement for installation of a control manhole. The property from which the inflow originated shall be billed for inflow according to Article XI; however, the Town Board may cause a surcharge at a rate not to exceed five times that for normal sewage volume charge.
The discharge of trucked or hauled wastes into the sewer system and public sewers tributary thereto will not be permitted.
