It shall be the responsibility of the owner to maintain the service pipe from the curb box into the house or building. In case of failure upon the part of any owner to repair any leak occurring in the owner’s service pipe within 24 hours after verbal or written notice has been given the owner, the water will be disconnected and will not be turned on until the repair has been completed and the fee for restoration of disconnected service as detailed in City Code Appendix A has been paid. When the waste of water is great, or when damage is likely to result from the leak, the water will be turned off if the repair is not proceeded with immediately upon the giving of such notice. Disconnections pursuant to this section are not subject to the procedures or limitations set forth in § 11.07 of this code.
