§ 51.051  SEPARATE LINES TO PREMISES.
   (A)   Where there is a water main in the street, adjacent to the property to be served, a separate service line shall be laid from the main to each premise. In cases where the water main is on the opposite side of the street, two customers, but not more than two, may use a single line from main, provided that copper pipe is carried to each curb stop, with suitable brass branch connections, without the use of steel or iron pipe or fittings.
   (B)   Where it is necessary to secure water service from a long distance the same materials and procedure shall be used as in the case of individual service. Copper pipe shall be used to a valve fitted with usual curb box, to be used to control the entire line, and in case more than one customer is supplied from such line a separate curb stop with box must be installed for each service.
   (C)   The size of pipe required to serve a number of customers shall be determined by the City Plumbing Inspector and the city reserves the right to limit the number of services which may be taken from such line.
   (D)   In all cases, such service lines shall be, and remain the property of the owner, or owners, who may have installed same and the city shall not permit other connections to be made on same without the owner's consent. Any pipe lines so laid to serve one or more customers shall be maintained by the owners, and in case of leakage between the main and any or all of the individual service connections, the city shall proceed in the same manner as in individual service lines, upon due notice to owners or customers.
