(A) In an effort to eliminate excessive inflow and infiltration, and avoid potential treatment plant upsets and sanitary sewer overflows, which could potentially result in enforcement action from the regulating agencies, each property shall be inspected for proper building sewer connections and for defects that allow inflow and infiltration into the sanitary sewer system.
(B) The inspection shall be at the town’s cost if it is of an existing building and shall be at the owner’s costs if it is for new construction and shall include televising and recording the condition of the building to the public sewer, and entrance onto the property to verify that no sump pump, foundation drains, down spouts, or other prohibited connections are connected to the public sewer.
(C) The property owner shall be responsible for the costs of fixing any discovered defects or prohibited sewer connections. In general, each property owner will be responsible to pay for the cost of eliminating sources of inflow and infiltration. There is no charge if the lateral is in good shape. Concerning surface restoration, whenever there are any improvements above the location of any part of a property owner’s sewer line, at the sole option of the town, either:
(1) The town will remove the improvement and the property owner will be responsible for replacing said improvement;
(2) The property owner shall both remove and replace the improvement; or
(3) The sewer line will be re-routed. Said materials shall be in conformance with other sections of this subchapter and subject to approval by the Superintendent.
