The municipality through its Board of Public Works, shall furnish water to persons within its corporate limits whose premises abut a street or alley in which a commercial main now is or may hereafter be laid. The municipality may furnish water to persons within its corporate limits whose premises do not abut a street or alley in which a city commercial main now is or may hereafter be laid and may also furnish water to persons whose premises are situated outside the corporate limits of the municipality, as and when, according to law, the Board of Public Works may see fit to do so. The rules, regulations, and water rates hereinafter named in this chapter, shall be considered a part of every application hereafter made for water service and shall be considered a part of the contract between every consumer now or hereafter served. Without further formality, the making of application on the part of any applicant or the use or consumption of water service by present consumers thereof and the furnishing of water service to the consumer shall constitute a contract between the consumer and the municipality, to which the contract both parties are bound. If the consumer shall violate any of the provisions of the contract or any reasonable rules and regulations that the Board of Public Works may hereafter adopt, the Superintendent of Utilities, or his or her agent, may cut off or disconnect the water service from the building or premise or place of such violation. No further connection for water service to the building, premise, or place shall again be made save or except by order of the Superintendent or his or her agent.
