(A) Installation of all sewer pipes to be connected to municipally owned storm or sanitary sewers shall conform to standards set forth by this subchapter.
(B) After making each sewer tap and/or building sewer installation, the person responsible for the installation shall notify the Utilities Superintendent so that the sewer may be inspected and approved before the excavation is backfilled. Prior to approval of the sewer tap and sewer, testing of the sewer may be required to assure acceptable performance. All testing shall be in accordance with standards approved for use by agencies of the state charged with promulgating and administering regulations governing sewer pipe testing.
(C) Each job will consist of two inspections by the Utilities Superintendent or his or her designee. The inspections will be as follows.
(1) First inspection. Once the building sewer line has been installed or repaired and/or the tap has been made, the Utilities Superintendent, or his or her designee, shall be contacted before any backfilling is done. The sewer line shall remain exposed in its entirety so inspection may be made. The inspection will be to ensure the proper materials were used and that the sewer line/tap was installed as outlined in this subchapter.
(2) Second inspection. The second inspection shall be required when the person making the sewer tap or installation is complete and all roadways, alleyways, curbs, sewer or water lines, sidewalks or any other public utilities or rights-of-way or any other property that may be disturbed, damaged, altered or otherwise affected by the proposed sewer connection, have been replaced to as good as or better than its original state.
(3) Maps and drawings. Upon the final inspection, the person responsible for the installation, shall present to the inspecting official, an “as built” drawing of the work completed. This includes both new installations and repairs to existing lines.
