(a)   Prohibitive Dumping.  Except for sanitary landfills approved by the County Board of Health, no person shall place, deposit or permit to be deposited in any unsanitary manner on public or private property within the City or in any area under the jurisdiction of the City, any human or animal excrement, garbage, trash or other objectionable waste as determined by the City.
   (b)   Unlawful Discharge.  No person shall discharge to any natural outlet or storm sewer within the City, or in any area under the jurisdiction of the City, any sewage or other polluted waters, except where suitable treatment has been provided in accordance with subsequent provisions of this chapter.
   (c)   Privies, Septic Tanks, Cesspools, Etc.  Except as hereinafter provided, no person shall construct or maintain any privy, privy vault, septic tank, cesspool or other facility intended or used for the disposal of sewage or other wastewater.  In no case shall a property owner be authorized to improve, extend or expand an existing septic system; however, he shall be permitted to clean and repair the existing system until such time that a public sanitary sewer becomes available.
   (d)   Public Sanitary Sewer Available.  The owner of all houses, buildings or properties used for human occupancy, employment, recreation or other purposes, situated within the City, or in any area under the jurisdiction of the City, and abutting on any street, alley or right of way in which there is now located or may in the future be located a public sanitary sewer, is hereby required at his expense to install suitable plumbing and toilet facilities therein, and to connect such facilities directly with the proper public sanitary sewer in accordance with the provision of this chapter, within six months after such service is certified in writing to be available by the City, and provided that the public sanitary sewer is:
      (1)   Within 200 feet of the property line, or
      (2)   Within 300 feet of the building served.
   A copy of the certification shall be sent to each property owner to be connected.
   (e)   Notice of Connections.  If the connection is not made within the six-month connection period, the Board of Public Utilities shall cause written notice to be given to each property owner of the connections to be made, which notice shall state the number and size of connections required.  The Board of Public Utilities may also compel the making of sewer (and water) connections whenever they deem it necessary by reason of contemplated street paving.  The notice to be served on the property owners shall be served in the manner provided for serving of summons in civil actions, and the report of the person serving the notice or a certified copy thereof shall be prima-facie evidence of the serving of the notice.  If any of such owners are nonresidents of the City, or cannot be located, the notice may be given by publication twice in a newspaper of general circulation within the City.
   (f)   Injunctive Action by City.  If the connections are not constructed within ninety days after such service of notice or day of first publication thereof, the City may petition the Common Pleas Court for a mandatory injunction requiring compliance by the owner with the provisions of this section.
