It is unlawful for any person who owns any dwelling, building or structure equipped with an evaporative cooler to operate the cooler without a fully functional recyclable system. The recyclable system shall effectively recycle the water throughout the evaporative cooler so as to not allow clean water to be introduced into the city's sewer system. Therefore, for the purpose of monitoring this system, the overflow discharge line and end shall be visible to allow an inspection of water discharge. Any person violating this section shall be issued a written warning either personally or by mail at the address of the dwelling, building or structure. The warning will grant the owner or person in possession of the premises ten days to correct the defect. Failure to correct the defect within the ten-day period shall result in the imposition of a $100 fine which will continue each and every month until the defect is corrected. The Superintendent of Public Works shall be contacted when the defect has been corrected and upon inspection, the monthly fine will be removed.
