An applicant constructing an extension of the water supply system within the corporate city limits by means of a private contract or special improvement district shall be deemed to have conveyed the ownership of such extension to the city upon acceptance of the extension by the city. At that time the city shall have assumed complete control over the facilities so extended, including the right to connect additional customers to the extended water system facilities as well as the right to further extend such facilities to other property within the service area.
From the date of acceptance onward the city shall be responsible for the maintenance of extensions to the water supply system. Any water supply system facilities owned by persons other than the city, whether such facilities are located within or without the corporate city limits, shall be maintained by said persons having ownership and control over said facilities. (Ord. 354, 2-21-1984)
