(a) No person or property owner shall connect with a sanitary sewer, either directly or indirectly, without first having obtained a permit. The permit shall constitute an agreement by the applicant with the Village to abide by all provisions of West Virginia Law and such applicable rules of the Village in regard to the use of the sewer system.
(b) The procedure for obtaining a permit for connecting to a sanitary sewer shall be as provided herein. The property owner desiring connection shall apply to the Sanitary Board for a permit. The application for such permit shall be available in the Village Hall during normal business hours. Such application for service by firms, partnerships, associations and corporations shall be submitted only by their duly authorized agent, and the official title of such agent shall be signed to the application. The applicant of service shall designate on the application for service whether the applicant is a tenant or an owner of the premises to be served.
(c) Proposed developments including, but not limited to, subdivisions, apartment complexes, etc. which do not fall into the category of individual customer service lines must provide a complete sets of approved construction plans, an engineering design report, and detailed specifications for review. Upon completion of construction, a detailed set of “As-Built” drawings will be provided to the Board. Minimum requirements for the “As-Built” drawings are as follows:
(1) All appurtenances including, but not limited to, valves, manholes, force main and gravity clean-outs, air release valve vaults, air and vacuum released valve vaults, shall have two referenced measurements. Measurements shall be taken in the field and scaled on the “As-Built” drawings to include the measured distance.
(2) All service lateral taps on the main or any side line, shall be measured from the center line of the last manhole installed to the center line of each lateral tap and a station applied to that lateral tap on the “As-Built” drawings. Should a lateral tap be moved either forward or backwards along the main line, from its location on the engineer’s drawings, that lateral shall be adjusted accordingly in the plan view of the “As-Built” drawings.
(3) Once a service lateral has been installed to its designed location and a wye marker is in place, there shall be two reference measurements to the wye marker. The end of the service lateral location shall then be placed on the “As-Built” drawings to the same scale as the engineer’s drawings and shall show measured distances as were determined in the field.
(4) Any and all grades, pipe diameter and pipe types which are changed during construction due to adjustments shall be changed in the plan and profile for that line and the profile shall be redrawn to reflect changes as well as all stationing and pertinent labeling.
(5) All inverts and tops of manholes and clean-outs shall be reestablished by spirit level and recorded on the “As-Built” drawings on each manhole and clean-out that changed.
(6) When taking reference measurements, do not use house corners as the plans are drawn from aerial photos and only the roof corners are seen. Do not take reference measurements from houses, power poles, outbuildings, garages, etc. which do not appear on the engineer’s drawings.
(7) All construction “As-Built” drawings shall be prepared in pencil for accuracy and then overlay in red ink.
(d) The fee for a sewer tap permit for residential service shall be the service connection fee as given in Article 933, Sewer Charges. The fee for a sewer tap permit for commercial or industrial service shall be the established residential service connection fee or the actual costs incurred by the Sanitary Board in making the sewer tap, whichever is the greater. Extension of the main shall be in accordance with the “Rules and Regulations for the Government of Sewer Utilities,” as amended, promulgated by the Public Service Commission of West Virginia. A sewer permit shall be obtained for each lot in any subdivision as and when sewer taps or connections to serve such lots are made. The fee for each such additional tap or connection in residential subdivisions shall be the established residential service connection fee same as the number of individual dwellings units per structure, whether these units in each building are detached housing, condominiums or apartment complexes.
(e) There shall be two classes of building sewer permits:
(1) For residential and commercial service, and
(2) For service to establishments producing industrial wastes.
In either case, the owner or his agent shall make application on the special form furnished by the Board. The permit application shall be supplemented by any plans, specifications or other information considered pertinent in the judgment of the Board.
(f) In cases where the Village will transport and treat wastes of users located outside of the Village’s political jurisdiction, all service and rates shall be the same as for users within the Village, as per required by the State Public Service Commission.
(g) The Sanitary Board shall inspect all construction work performed relating to sanitary sewer facilities. See Article 933 for fees.
