(a)   Connection requirements. All building sewer connections shall be made to the wye or riser provided for that purpose. No sewer connection shall be laid in the same trench with water, gas or any other pipe, and all sewer connections shall be laid far enough from all others to permit the repair or removal or relaying of any one without disturbing the other, unless an alternate method is approved by the Utility Division.
   (b)   Status of cesspools and septic tanks. At the time any connection is made to the city sanitary sewer system, all cesspools, septic tanks or other sewage disposal facilities existing on the property which is connected shall be pumped and then filled to earth level with suitable material. Piping through cesspools or septic tanks shall not be permitted, and connections to buildings with existing cesspools and septic tanks shall be on the house side of the cesspools or tank, unless an alternate method is approved by the Utility Division.
   (c)   Compliance with regulations; licensed workers. All sewer connections shall be made by a person licensed by the city to perform this work. Building sewers shall conform with all utility regulations as to materials, depths of cover slope and water tightness. No connection shall be covered or otherwise concealed from sight until inspected and approved by the city.
