§ 13.16.010  LEGISLATIVE POLICY AND INTENT.
   A.   It is the intent of the City Council, in enacting this Chapter 13.16, to enhance the health, safety and welfare of the community and to protect the public water supply of the city from contamination or pollution by isolating within the water customer's internal distribution or private water system contaminants or pollutants which could backflow into the public water system.
   B.   Further, it is the intent of this Council to promote the elimination or control of existing cross-connections, actual or potential, between in-plant potable water systems and nonpotable water systems, plumbing fixtures and industrial piping systems, and to provide for a continuing program of cross-connection control which will systematically and effectively prevent the contamination or pollution of the city's water system.
   C.   Nothing contained in this Chapter 13.16 shall be construed to abrogate or supersede any provision or provisions of the Uniform Plumbing Code, as most recently adopted by this Council, and the provisions of said Uniform Plumbing Code shall be considered complementary and an addition to the requirements of this Chapter 13.16.
