(a) If an approved public sewer is within 300 feet of any new building or structure for which sewage disposal is required, the property owner shall connect to the sewer, provided that the owner of the sewer permits such a connection.
(b) Should an existing onsite sewage treatment system deteriorate to the extent that such system constitutes a present and continuing risk to public health unless substantial repairs to the system or replacement or enlargement of the soil absorption area are performed and the building or structure served by such system is within 300 feet of an approved public sewer, the property owner shall connect to the sewer, provided that the owner of the sewer allows such a connection. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if a conventional or alternative onsite sewage system, fully meeting all applicable current requirements to serve as a repair for the existing use, can be constructed on the property, connection to public sewer shall not be required, provided such onsite sewage system is promptly constructed and placed into use.
