If any owner shall permit any person from any other premises, or any unauthorized user to use or obtain water from his premises or water fixtures, whether inside or outside of his buildings, the water supply of such owner may be cut off and the amount paid therefor, if any, forfeited; and such unauthorized person shall for taking said water be liable to a fine, plus costs. Any user or owner suspected of having violated the provisions of this chapter, other than nonpayment of user fees, assessments or charges for repairs, shall be notified of the violation and be notified that if the violation is not corrected within ten (10) days, the superintendent shall shut off his water; provided, however, in the event of an emergency, the superintendent may shut off the water without notification. (2003 Code § 9-01-35)
