The Borough Council finds and determines that the discharge of groundwater relating to excavation for a structure or swimming pool into or upon the surface of any public sidewalk, street or public place creates a nuisance to the general public. The Borough Council also finds the discharge of water from a cellar, basement, crawl space, swimming pool or similar structure into the municipal sanitary sewer system causes an unnecessary expense to the Municipality.
The discharge of groundwater relating to excavation, construction or repair of a structure or swimming pool into or upon the surface of any public sidewalk, street or public place or in such place or manner as to reach any public sidewalk, street or public place is prohibited.
Groundwater relating to excavation, construction or repair of a structure or swimming pool may be discharged directly into a public storm sewer system, provided that the water does not flow into or on any public sidewalk, street or public place. Any hose, pipe or similar device used to discharge such groundwater into a public storm sewer shall not block an automobile from accessing a driveway.
The discharge of water from a cellar, basement, crawl space, swimming pool or any structure constructed or maintained on private property for the purpose of retaining water into the municipal sanitary sewer system is prohibited.
