(A)   Any violation of the provisions of this article shall constitute a public nuisance. The water superintendent may discontinue water service immediately without notice to any premises where a required backflow prevention device is not installed, inspected, tested, properly operating and maintained, or if a backflow prevention device is found to have been removed or bypassed, or if unprotected cross-connections or other hazards to the water system are found to exist. The water superintendent shall not again authorize service to such premises until such hazards are eliminated in accordance with this article.
   (B)   Any customer who violates any of the provisions of this article or alters, bypasses or renders inoperative any backflow prevention device installed under the provisions of this chapter shall, in addition to any other applicable penalties, be subject to immediate discontinuance of water service. Water service shall not again be rendered until such violation or noncompliance has been corrected to the satisfaction of the water superintendent.
