A. Turning on Water: In turning on water, the Village or the Water and Sewer Department shall not be responsible for any damage that may occur by reason of improper fixtures, open or improper connections, or for any other causes.
B. Turning Off Water:
1. The Village may, when necessary, shut the water off in its mains for the purpose of making repairs or extensions or for other purposes and no claims shall be made against the Village by reason of the breaking of any service pipe or service cock, or from any other damage that may result from shutting off water for repairing, laying or re-laying mains, hydrants or other connections. The Water and Sewer Department shall give notice of shutting off water if conditions are such that it is possible to do so.
2. When water is shut off for making repairs in premises having water heat-coils in heaters, consumers should turn off the water at the basement shut-off and open a faucet in the hot water pipe and leave it open until water is turned on in order to protect piping and fixtures from excessive pressures from hot water or steam.
C. Water Use Discontinuance: Owners or consumers desiring to discontinue the use of water shall give notice thereof in writing to the Superintendent of Water and Sewer at the Village office who shall then cause the water to be turned off and the meter removed. Water rents or charges for services shall be made until such notice is given. When water service is discontinued all water rentals for such service shall become due and payable. When water service is again desired after having been discontinued, a charge of ten dollars ($10.00) shall be made and collected before turning on water and renewing service. (Ord. 85-05, 6-5-1984)
