(A)   All lots in subdivisions shall have a suitable source of water supply and sanitary sewage disposal, which complies with the regulations of all appropriate agencies. Each lot in a subdivision created within the corporate limits of the town shall be provided, at the subdivided expense with an extension of the municipal water and sanitary sewer systems.
   (B)   Wherever it is legally possible and practical, as determined by the town, after consideration of documented property ownership, topography and supporting cost and engineering data supplied by the subdivider, to connect lots in a subdivision located outside the corporate limits to a water or sewer system owned and operated by a governmental body, those connections shall be made at the subdivided expense.
   (C)   If the tract in question (outside the corporate limits) is proposed to be subdivided with the number of dwelling units indicated in the left hand column of the following table or with a nonresidential use that places a comparable demand on the water or sewer system, and any portion of the tract lies within the distance shown on the right-hand side of the table (as measured using the shortest straight line) to an existing public water or sewer line which can be so extended, then the extension shall be made, unless specifically waived by the Town Board of Aldermen.
   (D)   In determining the number of dwelling units proposed for a tract, this shall be computed using the number of units proposed for all phases of the subdivision. Connection to the water or sewer line shall not be deemed legally possible if, after diligent effort by the subdivider, the easement necessary to run the connection line across property(ies) not owned by the subdivider, cannot be obtained. In those instances where the subdivider intends to not install water and sewer lines and the distance considerations are as herein indicated are met, he or she shall nonetheless provide the town with cost figures and supporting engineering data for the extensions.
      (1)   Sewer system alternatives.

         (a)   In cases where connections to a public sewer system are not proposed or are not feasible, alternative sewer disposal systems may be considered.
         (b)   Sewer disposal systems using package treatment plants as the main treatment facility shall be designed to accommodate the eventual connection to a municipal or county-owned public sewer system at the time the connection becomes feasible.
         (c)   The subdivider of a subdivision containing a package sewage treatment plant shall adequately demonstrate to the town that the plant, where located, shall satisfactorily serve as a means of waste treatment in a manner which is compatible with the environment and which will not adversely impact upon any public water supply system.
         (d)   Septic tanks (i.e., private sewage disposal systems) may be allowed as a means of sewage disposal in cases where connection to a public sewer system is not feasible; however, the following statement shall appear on all final plats containing lots which are proposed to be connected to septic tanks: “in approving this plat, the town does not guarantee the suitability of any lot for the placement of a septic tank system”.
      (2)   Water.
         (a)   In cases where connections to a public water system are not proposed, alternative water supply systems may be considered.
         (b)   Water supplied by a well or spring to a single service connection may be used subject to approval by the County Health Department.
         (c)   Connection to a water system not owned and operated by a public body may also be allowed.
         (d)   In no instance, however, shall such a privately owned and operated water system (i.e., a community water system) having 2-14 service connections be allowed.
      (3)   Oversized improvements.
         (a)   The Town Board of Aldermen may require installation of certain oversized utilities or the extension of utilities to adjacent property(ies) when it is in the interest of future development.
         (b)   If the Town Board of Aldermen requires the installation of improvements in excess of the standards required in this chapter, including all standards adopted by reference, the town shall assume that the cost differential between the oversized improvement required and the standards which would otherwise apply to the proposed subdivision is not incurred by the subdivider.
         (c)   In this manner, the subdivider shall not bear the costs of providing oversized improvements required by the town.
