If any person shall fail to promptly and properly repair any leaky, clogged or inadequate private sewer line or house service sewer line, or if any person shall fail to promptly and properly empty or repair any septic tank, after being notified by the Superintendent of Water and Sewers to do so, the supply of city water may immediately be shut off from the premises of all water users on that line and shall remain shut off until the necessary repairs have been made. The city shall not be liable for any damage resulting from the shutting off of the water, and no deductions shall be allowed from the regular water rates during the period that the water is shut off. The water supply shall not again be turned on to the premises until all work ordered by the Superintendent of Water and Sewers has been satisfactorily completed and a fee of $40 paid for turning the water off and on.
