(A)   No unauthorized person shall uncover, make any connections with or openings into, use, alter or disturb any public sewer or appurtenances without first obtaining a written permit from the Clerk of the authority.
   (B)   Before a permit may be issued for excavating for plumbing in any public street, way or alley, the person applying for the permit shall have executed to the authority and deposited with the Clerk of the authority a corporate surety in a sum as set by the Board of Trustees from time to time, assuring that he or she will perform faithfully all work with due care and diligence and in accordance with the laws, rules and regulations established by the authority or any local, state and federal laws, codes or ordinances pertaining to plumbing. This bond shall state that the person will indemnify and save harmless the authority and the owner of the premises against all damages, costs, expenses, outlays and claims of every nature and kind arising out of unskillfulness or negligence on his or her part in connection with plumbing or excavation for plumbing as prescribed in this chapter. The bond shall remain in force and must be executed for a period of one year; except that, on its expiration, it shall remain in force as to all penalties, claims and demands that may have accrued prior to its expiration.
   (C)   All disposal by any person into the sewer system is unlawful, except those discharges in compliance with federal standards promulgated pursuant to the Federal Act and more stringent state and local standards.
   (D)   (1)   There shall be five types of building permits as follows:
         (a)   For single-family residential dwelling units and commercial service;
         (b)   For multi-family residential dwelling units;
         (c)   For service to establishments producing industrial wastes;
         (d)   For the institutional class of users; and
         (e)   For service to the governmental class of users.
      (2)   In any case, the owner or his or her agent shall make application on a special form furnished by the authority. The permit applications shall be supplemented by any plans, specifications or other information considered pertinent in the judgment of the authority. For the industrial class of users, the application shall provide information describing its wastewater constituents, characteristics and type of activity.
   (E)   (1)   At the time of filing a building sewer permit application, a permit and inspection fee shall be paid to the Clerk of the authority in accordance with the following schedule for the respective type of building sewer permit:
As set by the Board of Trustees from time to time per building sewer
As set by the Board of Trustees from time to time per building sewer
As set by the Board of Trustees from time to time per building sewer
Multi-family residential
As set by the Board of Trustees from time to time for every 5 dwelling units or fractional part
Single-family residential
As set by the Board of Trustees from time to time per building sewer and commercial service
      (2)   For a period of 30 days after the passage of this chapter, the permit and inspection fee shall be one-tenth of the fee for each respective type of building sewer permit given under this chapter.
   (F)   A building sewer permit will only be issued, and a sewer connection shall only be allowed, if it can be demonstrated that the downstream sewerage facilities, including sewers, pump stations and wastewater treatment facilities, have sufficient reserve capacity to adequately and efficiently handle the additional anticipated waste load.
   (G)   The applicant for sewer service shall pay all costs and expenses incidental to the installation and connection of the building sewer, as well as be responsible for the maintenance of the sewer lateral or sewer line from the point of connection to the village’s water service line and/or sewer service line, or to the collector sewer of the village if located within the right-of-way of the village, to the premises of the applicant or user. Upon the village’s determination that injuries to the village’s main sewer line are resulting from the lack of a clean out in the sewer lateral, the user shall be required to install and maintain a sewer clean out at the user’s expense. The sewer clean out shall be installed on the owner or user’s side of the property line and as close to the village’s right-of-way line as practicable. The owner and the person installing the building sewer for the owner shall indemnify the village from any loss or damage that may directly or indirectly result from the installation.
   (H)   A separate and independent building sewer shall be provided for every building, except, where one building stands at the rear of another on an interior lot and no private sewer is available or can be constructed to the rear building through an adjoining alley, court, yard or driveway, the building sewer from the front building may be extended to the rear building and the extension considered as the building sewer for the rear building. Multi-family dwelling units, including apartments and mobile home trailer parks, may use a single common building sewer for drainage of individual dwelling units.
   (I)   Old building sewers may be used in connection with new buildings only when they are found, upon examination and testing by the approving authority, to meet all requirements of this chapter.
   (J)   (1)   The building sewer shall be constructed of:
         (a)   Extra heavy cast iron soil pipe and fittings meeting the current A.S.T.M. Specifications for Extra Heavy Cast Iron Soil Pipe;
         (b)   ABS (Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene) extra strength solid wall pipe and fittings meeting the current A.S.T.M. Specifications for ABS Extra Strength Solid Wall Pipe; or
         (c)   PVD (Polyvinyl Chloride) schedule 40 pipe.
      (2)   If installed in filled or unstable ground, the building sewer shall be of cast iron soil pipe; except that, vitrified clay pipe or ABS solid wall pipe meeting the above specification requirements may be accepted if laid on a suitable improved bed or cradle as approved by the authority.
   (K)   (1)   All joints and connections shall be made gas-tight and water-tight. Vitrified clay sewer pipe shall be fitted with factory-made resilient compression joints meeting the current A.S.T.M. Specifications for Vitrified Clay Pipe Joints Having Resilient Properties. Before joining the pipe in the trench, the bell and spigot surfaces shall be wiped free of dirt or other foreign matter. A lubricant or sealer as recommended by the pipe manufacturer shall be applied to the bell and spigot mating surfaces just before they are joined together. The spigot end shall be positioned into the bell end of the pipe previously laid and shall then be shoved home to compress the joint and to assure a tight fit between the interfaces. Joints for cast iron soil pipe shall be made by inserting a roll of hemp or jute and thoroughly caulking it into place and then following with pure molten lead, well caulked, not less than one inch deep.
      (2)   No paint, varnish or putty will be allowed in the joints until they have been tested and approved.
   (L)   The size and slope of building sewers shall be subject to the approval of the authority, but in no event shall the diameter be less than four inches. The slope of the four-inch pipe shall not be less than one- eighth inch per foot. A slope of one-fourth inch per foot shall be used wherever practical.
   (M)   Whenever possible, the building sewer shall be brought to the building at an elevation below the basement floor. The depth shall be sufficient to afford protection from frost. All excavations required for the installation of a building sewer shall be open trench work unless otherwise approved by the authority. Pipe laying and backfill shall be performed in accordance with current A.S.T.M. Specification Designation C12; except that, no backfill shall be placed until the work has been inspected by the authority or its representative.
   (N)   In all buildings in which any building drain is too low to permit gravity flow to the public sewer, sanitary sewage carried by the drains shall be lifted by approved artificial means and discharged to the building sewer. No water-operated sewage ejector shall be used.
   (O)   No person shall make connection of roof downspouts, exterior foundation drains, areaway drains or other sources of surface runoff or ground water to a building sewer or building drain which in turn is connected directly or indirectly to a public sanitary sewer.
   (P)   The connection of the building sewer into the public sewer shall conform to the requirements of the Building and Plumbing Codes, or other applicable rules and regulations of the authority, or the procedures set forth in appropriate specifications of the American Society of Testing Materials, Water Pollution Control Federation Manual of Practice No.9 and Standard Specifications for Water and Sewer Main Construction in Illinois. All connections shall be made gas-tight and water-tight. Any deviation from the prescribed procedures and materials must be approved by the approving authority before installation.
   (Q)   More specifically, the connection of a building sewer into the public sewer shall be made at a “Y” branch or “T” branch, if a branch is available at a suitable location. If the public sewer has no properly located “Y” or “T” branch available, the owner shall, at his or her expense, install a “Y” branch or a “Y” saddle fitting (for ABS truss pipe) at the location specified by the authority. Under no circumstances will the sewer service protrude into the sewer main to which the connection is made. The invert of the building sewer at the point of connection shall be at the same or at a higher elevation than the invert of the public sewer. A smooth, neat joint shall be made and the connection made secure and water- tight by encasement in concrete. Special fittings may be used for the connection only when approved by the authority. Manholes shall be constructed at any junction of an eight-inch diameter line or larger into a public sewer.
   (R)   The applicant for the building sewer permit shall notify the authority when the building is ready for inspection and connection to the public sewer. The connection shall be made under the supervision of the authority or its representative.
   (S)   All excavations for building sewer installation shall be adequately guarded with barricades and lights so as to protect the public from hazard. Streets, sidewalks, parkways and other public property disturbed in the course of the work shall be restored in a manner satisfactory to the authority.
   (U)   For all residential, commercial, and industrial buildings constructed after the effective date of this division (U), a sewer ejector pump shall be installed three feet below grade, and a sewer clean out shall be installed at the lateral prior to the lateral’s connection to the village’s main sewer line. The sewer clean out shall be installed on the owner or user’s side of the property line and as close to the village’s right-of-way line as practicable.
