§ 53.06  RIGHT OF ACCESS.
   (A)   The Town of Clayton Public Works and Utilities Director or his or her designee shall have the right to enter, at reasonable times, any nonresidential property served by a connection to the town's public water supply for the purpose of performing the duties of this chapter. In those cases in which the owner chooses not to provide such access, the Town of Clayton Public Works and Utilities Director or his or her designee may classify the location as a severe hazard in accordance with § 53.08.
   (B)   On request from the Town of Clayton Public Works and Utilities Director, the consumer shall furnish to the town any pertinent information regarding the water supply system on such property where cross-connections, either actual or potential, and backflow are deemed possible.
   (C)   The consumer's system should be open for inspection at all reasonable times to authorized representatives from the town to determine whether unprotected cross-connections or other structural or sanitary hazards, including violations of this chapter, exist. Refusal to allow entry for these purposes shall result in enforcement action (disconnection of water services, stipulated penalties, and the like). When such a condition becomes known, the consumer will be notified, in writing, to disconnect the unprotected cross-connections within a time period established in this chapter. The degree of protection required and the period of time required for conformance shall be commensurate with the actual or potential degree of hazard to the public potable water supply system.
