The purpose of this article is to eliminate foundation drain connections to the sanitary sewer system in order to mitigate detrimental impacts caused by sanitary sewer overflows. The city hereby enacts a program, to be progressively implemented in additional areas of the city, that will provide a limited financial assistance payment to sanitary sewer system customers in established districts that disconnect a foundation drain from the sanitary sewer system within a specified period of time, and to establish monthly surcharge payments for sanitary sewer system customers within established districts that fail to disconnect foundation drains within a specified period of time following the establishment of a district.
