(A) Henceforth, the installation or reopening of a privately-owned well that has been previously capped or closed upon any premises within the corporate limits of the town is hereby prohibited for use as a primary water supply.
(B) Henceforth, the reopening of a capped well or a closed well and the installation and use of any secondary water supply is subject to the review and approval of the Town Council. The Town Council shall approve or deny requests for such installation or reopening on a case-by-case basis. The Town Council also has the authority to impose any conditions it considers appropriate to protect the safety and availability of the town's water supply, and to protect the revenue generating capabilities of the town's public water utility. The Town Council shall also have the right to revoke any approval granted previously at any time based upon the submission of evidence that a condition hazardous to the safety of the town's public water utility exists, or in those instances when a violation has occurred of any conditions imposed by the Town Council as part of its prior approval of the secondary water supply.
(C) Violators of this section shall be subject to a fine of $500. Each day that such a violation occurs is deemed to be a separate violation.
