Sec. 13-4-30.   Sewer system.
   (a)   The sanitary sewer system is for the disposal of water contaminated by biodegradable wastes. No person shall make connection of roof downspouts, exterior foundation drains, areaway drains, surface drains or other sources of surface runoff or groundwater to a building sewer or building drain which in turn is connected directly or indirectly to the City's sanitary sewer system. In order to protect the City's sewage system from damage, destruction, deterioration, misuse or malfunction and to guard against health hazards and the creation of public nuisance, the regulations contained in this Article shall apply relative to the discharge of sewage containing deleterious wastes.
   (b)   A septic facility may not be utilized within the City service area unless a special permit is obtained from the City.
   (c)   The storm sewer system is to be used for the transmission of natural surface water and uncontaminated groundwater only. No pollutants, trash or other deleterious substances shall be placed in the City's storm sewer systems, or area tributary to this system, when entry to the system is likely.
