(A) General. The size, shape, alignment, materials or construction of a building (or house) lateral sewer and the methods to be used in excavating, placing the pipe, jointing, testing and backfilling the trench shall conform to the requirements of the Building and Plumbing Codes and other applicable rules and regulations of the city.
(B) Determining major contributors. Each commercial and industrial user shall supply the city with information about expected wastewater constituents and characteristics to be used in determining whether or not the user will be a major contributor.
(C) Separate sewer requirements. A separate and independent building (or house) lateral sewer shall be provided for every building (or house); except where one building (or house) stands at the rear of another or an interior lot and no private sewer is available or can be constructed to the rear building (or house) through an adjoining alley, court, yard, or driveway. In such cases, the building (or house) lateral sewer from the front building (or house) may be extended to the rear building (or house) and the whole considered as one building (or house) lateral sewer. Nothing in this division (C) shall be construed to apply to lateral sewer connections between different facilities of an industrial user located on contiguous properties.
(D) Use of old building (or house) lateral sewer for a new building (or house). Old building (or house) lateral sewers may be used in connection with new buildings (or houses) only when they are determined, upon examination and test by the inspector, to meet all requirements of this subchapter.

No person shall hereafter connect or reconnect roof downspouts, footing drains, areaway drains, driveways, parking lots or other sources of surface, runoff or ground water, to a building (or house) lateral sewer or building (or house) drain which is in turn connected directly or indirectly to the sewerage system.
(F) Inspection; supervision of connection. The applicant for the building (or house) lateral sewer permit shall notify the Board or its designated representative when a building (or house) lateral sewer is ready for inspection and connection to the sewerage system. The connection shall be made under the supervision of the inspector or his or her representative using materials and techniques conforming to the requirements of the Board. The applicant shall give notice before the burial or covering of the lateral sewer and shall not cover or bury the sewer until the inspection is completed and the connection approved.
