After the adoption of this chapter, the construction or use of any facility other than the public sanitary sewer for treatment or disposal of wastewater inside the town limits shall be prohibited, except when the facility is constructed or used under a condition set forth below:
(A) The construction and use of a septic tank, or similar facility as determined by the Director of Public Works, may be permitted when it is determined that a premise cannot, at the time the facility is considered, be connected to a public sanitary sewer, and that there is reasonable expectation that a septic tank can function effectively.
(B) Any septic tank installed prior to and operating on the date of adoption of this chapter may continue in operation until the sanitary facilities on the premise are connected to the public sanitary sewer pursuant to this chapter, or until the septic tank or its field require repair, rebuilding, reconstruction, or relocation, whichever event first occurs. No septic tank shall be allowed except as stated in division (A) above after January 1, 1984.
(C) It shall be unlawful for any person to construct, repair, reconstruct, or rebuild any septic tank or septic privy within the town limits unless such act is permitted under the provisions of this section.
