(c) The property owner will pump and remove all sewage and other wastes from the temporary on-site wastewater system and abandon the system following the procedures in section 68.314.
(d) The property owner will not occupy the building to which the temporary on-site wastewater system will be installed or allow any other person to occupy the building until the property owner installs the system and the Director approves it.
(e) If the property owner sells or transfers the property the permit to use the temporary system will terminate unless the purchaser or transferee enters into a new agreement with the Director.
