1046.26  RAIN OR STORM WATER DISCHARGE TO SANITARY SEWERS PROHIBITED; BUILDING DOWNSPOUTS.
   (a)   No person shall connect to the sanitary sewers any gutter or other drain, or allow such to exist, whereby rain or storm water is diverted into the sanitary sewerage system. All existing gutters, drains or other facilities which presently divert rain, storm water or surface water into the sanitary sewers and sewerage system of the City are hereby declared illegal and shall, at the expense of the property owner, be sealed, closed or diverted therefrom.
   (b)   No person shall drain or divert any rain, surface, spring or clean-up water, other than sewage water, into the City sanitary sewerage system. To prevent such drainage, the building contractor shall have a pump of adequate size on the job at all times to pump water from basements, ditches and manholes.
   (c)   Building downspouts shall be connected to underground tile. Unless a property owner can prove to the Superintendent of Water and Sewers that such tile is connected to a cistern, storm sewer or street gutter, all spouting must be disconnected, and the tile and splash blocks shall be poured full of cement. An owner shall comply with the order to remove and disconnect such tile within thirty days after notice or the City will do the work. The cost of such work shall be at the owner's expense and shall be assessed against the lot or land.
