(B) No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged to any sanitary sewer, either directly or indirectly, stormwater, surface water, ground water, roof runoff, subsurface drainage, cooling water, unpolluted water, unpolluted industrial process water, or any other waters considered to be inflow or infiltration. The town shall require the removal of unpolluted water from the sewerage system if such removal is cost-effective and is in the best interest of all users of the sewerage system.

(D) No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged to any natural outlet any wastewater or other polluted waters except where suitable treatment has been provided in accordance with provisions of this chapter and a NPDES permit.
(E) No outdoor toilets shall hereafter be constructed within the corporate limits of the town. All outdoor toilets within the town shall be removed within one year from the effective date of this chapter and septic tank facilities installed as described in this chapter.
(F) Except as provided in this chapter, it shall be unlawful to construct or maintain any privy, privy vault, septic tank, cesspool, or other facility intended or used for the disposal of sewage.
(G) The owner of all houses, buildings, or properties used for human occupancy, employment, recreation or other purposes situated within the town and abutting any street, alley or right-of-way in which there is now located, or may in the future be located, a public sewer or combined sewer of the town, is required to discontinue the use of privies, cesspools, septic tanks, and similar structures and to install suitable toilet facilities. The owner shall connect such facilities with the proper public sewer per this chapter within 90 days after date of official notice to do so; provided that the public sewer is within 300 feet of the property line. In the event a sanitary sewer is available within 300 feet, the town may directly connect into it under this section and require disconnection from a combined sewer or storm sewer. The town may apply to the Circuit Court of DeKalb County for an order to force the connection, the cost of the action, together with reasonable attorney fees of the town, to be assessed by the court against the property owner in such action. Any person violating any of the provisions of this section shall become liable to the town for any expense, loss or damage occasioned by the town by reason of such violation.
