If the Director and/or Cross-Connection ORC determines that a customer's private water system constitutes an imminent hazard, the customer shall install a backflow prevention assembly as may be specified by the Town Public Utilities Department within 24 hours after notice of the determination. If the customer fails to take corrective measures in a timely manner, or refuses to install the specified assembly, water service to the customer's private water system may be terminated. If the Director or his or her designee is unable to give notice to the customer or his or her representative within 24 hours after the determination that an imminent hazard exists, despite reasonable efforts to provide the notice, the Town Public Utilities Department may terminate water service to the private water system until the specified corrected measures are taken. Upon correction of the existing problem and with the inspector's approval, water service will be continued.
