Whenever it shall become necessary to repair or alter any private water line, the size of the line, the size of the tap onto the city water system, and the sizes, types and locations of meter boxes, angle stops and other facilities must conform to standards established in this title and as may be set by the public works director. If there is a water main of the city that is accessible to the residents served by such private line, the users of such private line may make connections directly to the city water system rather than repair the private line and bring it into conformity with current standards. All repairs or alterations made to such private water lines shall be made at the expense of the property owner. (1985 Code § 18-1-8; amd. 2001 Code; Ord. 854, 5-6-2014)
