Every property owner shall be responsible for the maintenance and good condition of any lateral sewer branch connecting his premises with a city sewer, except that, where the part of the lateral branch within the limits of a dedicated street has been laid under public contract as part of a street paving improvement, or has been laid by private contract in connection with a street paving improvement under city supervision and inspection, and is later found to have been improperly constructed, the city shall, at its own expense, make the necessary repair or reconstruction of the lateral branch or part thereof and correct the condition caused by the improper construction.
