   (B)   A separate and individual water service lateral shall be provided to each single-family unit or commercial building, with each such service lateral being metered. No lateral shall serve more than one building unless specific authority is given by the Utilities Department.
   (C)   (1)   A backflow prevention device must be installed on all water service laterals by the property owner immediately upon entry to the structure to be served, prior to any point of connection or usage. The following devices shall be required:
         (a)   For residential dwelling units (three-family or less), double check valve complying with A.S.S.E. No. 1024 must be provided (Watts Regulator Company Model No. 7 or equal); and

      (2)   Backflow devices meeting A.S.S.E. Standard 1013 must be tested at the time of installation and at least once every 12 months thereafter by a person certified by the state’s Department of Health or other recognized agency in the use of the proper testing equipment designed for this purpose. In accordance with accepted engineering practices, backflow preventer meeting A.S.S.E. Standard 1013 must be completely rebuilt every five years.
      (3)   Backflow prevention and cross-connection control rules and regulations as set forth in the backflow prevention and cross-connection control ordinance of the village (see Chapter 51 of these codified ordinances) are incorporated into these rules and regulations.

   (E)   The village will perform all maintenance on the public water supply system, including the water service lateral from the water main to the meter pit or curb stop. The installation and maintenance of the water service lateral from the meter to the structure to be served is the property owner’s responsibility.
