(A)   Unless the developer or user has provided for a private sewage system as described in § 52.003(D), and where a public sanitary sewer is not available under the provisions of § 52.003(D), the building sewer shall be connected to a private sewage disposal system complying with the provisions of this chapter.
   (B)   At such time as a public sewer becomes available to the property served by a private sewage disposal system, unless the owner elects to provide for a private sewage treatment facility as provided in § 52.003(D), a direct connection shall be made to the public sewer in compliance with this chapter, and any septic tanks, cesspools, and similar private sewage disposal facilities shall be abandoned in accordance with state law at no expense to the city and shall be pumped and filled with approved granular material, except as provided below, or the Public Works Director shall otherwise permit. Where existing buildings are too low to be served by gravity by a public sanitary sewer, the existing septic tank facilities may be maintained in use, and, when so ordered by the Secretary (City Recorder) under § 52.003(D), approved pumping facilities shall be installed to pump the septic tank effluent into either the available public sanitary sewer system or the private sewage treatment facility as provided in § 52.003(D).
   (C)   The provisions of this chapter shall be in addition to and not in derogation of the requirements of general law.
