Sec. 13-5-60.   Fire protection service.
   (a)   A permit to take and use water from the water system for private fire protection service is granted only upon the following conditions:
      (1)   The applicant shall have secured a permit for water service from the City.
      (2)   The applicant shall have specified, with particularity, the fire protection facilities for which water service is desired.
      (3)   The applicant shall have executed an agreement adequate to control the use of the fire protection facilities to assure that they will not be used for any purpose other than extinguishing hostile or unfriendly fires, unless specifically exempted by the Board of Trustees. Each direct fire protection service line shall be equipped with an approved flow detection device. These facilities are subject to inspection at the City's discretion. The applicant shall have obtained all approvals, written or otherwise, as required by the City.
      (4)   If the water is to be supplied for fire protection through the same service line through which water is supplied for other purposes, the fire protection facilities shall be so installed as to prevent the use of water through such facilities for any purpose other than fighting hostile or unfriendly fires.
      (5)   The City assumes no obligation for adequacy of private fire protection service.
   (b)   The only use for which water may be taken from fire protection facilities under permit is to extinguish hostile or unfriendly fires. Any other use of water from such facilities shall be deemed as unauthorized use of water for which a permit for fire protection service may be suspended or revoked.
