§ 51.016  SEPARATE CONNECTIONS REQUIRED; EXCEPTIONS.
   (A)   Every house, apartment, trailer, building, condominium, or independently owned or plumbed unit requiring a water or sewer connection pursuant to this chapter shall be separately and independently connected, except in those cases where laterals have already been laid in asphalt or improved streets from the main, provision being made for the house or building, in which case the connection may be made for the house or building, in which case the connection may be made to an existing lateral. Minimum size for multiple service laterals are one inch for water and six inches for sewer or larger as may be required by the town in specific situations. When two or more houses or units are connected with the same water lateral, a separate meter shall be provided for each house or unit.
   (B)   Temporary exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Commissioners for units not in compliance herewith on the date of the adoption of this chapter. Units not meeting the separate meter requirement may continue until the time major or substantial building changes or repairs occur.
