(A) The term WATER WELL means any system used to pump, access, or otherwise bring to the surface underground sources of water existing under, upon or within the confines of any premises located within the corporate limits of the town, for the purpose of human consumption or other use, and which system or device is installed after the effective date of this section.
   (B)   Hereafter, the installation of any private water well upon any property located within the corporate limits of the town is prohibited provided, however, that there is town water main located within 300 feet of any property line of the property. This provision shall not prohibit the installation of a non-potable water well to be used exclusively in connection with a geothermal heating and cooling system.
   (C)   No person, including any incorporation, partnership or association, shall drill or otherwise install any water well in violation of this section. Violations of this section shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $500. Each day that such person continues to operate any such water well which has been installed in violation of the terms of this section is deemed to be a continuing and separate violation.
   (D)   Nothing in this section shall be construed as requiring the town of the town water utility to install or provide any water improvements or service to any person or premises which are not otherwise currently in existence at the time of passage of this section.
