Each buildable lot must have a separate sanitary sewer lateral connected directly to a public sanitary sewer constructed in the street right-of-way adjacent to the buildable lot.
(A) Tap connections. Connection of sewer lines to the sewer mains shall be made as follows:
(1) The tap shall be made using one of the following:
(a) Rubber universal Y saddle connected with two slip bands (see Appendix A, Illustration A); or
(b) Rubber universal T saddle connected with two slip bands (see Appendix A, Illustration B).
(2) Connection between the building sewer line and the tap shall be made using one of the two techniques below:
(a) Using a 45-degree fitting on the building sewer line and a 45 degree fitting on the tap; or
(b) Using a long sweeping 90-degree fitting to join the building sewer line and the tap.
(B) Lateral connections. All connections to existing laterals shall be made by using a rubber Fernco boot to ensure a tight seal.
(C) Backfilling. All backfilling will be completed as follows:
(1) Backfilling will be done in 18 inch layers; and
(2) Each layer shall be compacted using a plate compactor or other machine designed to compact the ground.
(1) If cut is made in the street, the following guidelines shall apply.
(a) Fill sand may be used to cushion new lines to a level of approximately 18 inches below grade level.
(b) The final top layer shall be filled using #53 gravel and compacted as stated above.
(c) After proper settling is allowed, the excavated area shall be paved using the following guidelines:
1. If in season, a hot mix asphalt from a state approved facility shall be used and rolled or packed smooth and level with the existing roadway; or
2. a. If hot mix is not in season, cold patch from a state approved facility may be used temporarily and rolled or packed smooth and level with the existing roadway.
b. However, the cold patch must be removed and replaced with hot mix asphalt as stated above when it becomes available.
(d) The excavation site shall be monitored for a period of one year. Should the patched area sink, settle or otherwise be deemed unacceptable by the Utilities Superintendent or his or her designee, the contractor or persons responsible for the disturbed area shall be responsible for making the necessary repair.
(2) If cut is made in a new road, the excavated area shall be saw cut so the patched area will be square and neat in appearance and the roadway shall be returned to its original material.
(3) The patch shall be compacted, with the use of equipment designed for compacting, so the finish patch will be level with the roadway.
(1) All sidewalks removed for excavating purposes shall be replaced by the contractor, at the owner’s expense, as soon as practical.
(2) Concrete for sidewalks shall be as follows: 3,000 LB PSI with fiber.
(F) Alleyways. The contractor is responsible for final finish work and shall be responsible for maintaining the excavation site for a period of one year.
(1) If the alleyway is gravel, #53 gravel shall be used to fill the hole and packed in layers as to provide a smooth hard surface.
(2) If the alleyway is blacktop, the alleyway shall be returned to its original surface.
(G) Other areas of public rights-of-way. Contractors shall return all areas of public right-of-way back to its original state and monitor for settling for a period of one year as outlined in this subchapter after completion.
