Subd. 2. Use of Public Sewers.


Section 5.  No person shall discharge or cause to be discharged directly or indirectly any storm water, groundwater, roof runoff, sub-surface drainage, waste from on-site disposal systems, unpolluted cooling or processing water to any sanitary sewer.  No foundation drainage or sump pump shall be connected or discharged into any sanitary sewer.   Buildings, including new housing construction or houses under construction, and other buildings and structures which require, because of the infiltration of water into basements, crawl spaces and the like, a sump pump system to discharge water shall have a permanently installed discharge line which shall not at any time discharge water into the sanitary sewer collection system.  A permanent installation shall be one which provides for a year-round discharge connection to the city subdrain/storm sewer system. It shall consist of a rigid discharge line inside the structure, without valving or quick connections for altering the path of discharge and, if connected to the city subdrain/storm sewer line, include a check valve.  If there is no subdrain available, the surface discharge point may be located outside of the right-of-way.  Any person, firm or corporation having a roof, surface, ground, sump pump, footing tile or swimming pool now connected and/or discharging into the sanitary sewer system shall disconnect and/or remove the same within 120 days of adoption of this Ordinance.  Any disconnects or openings in the sanitary sewer shall be closed or repaired in a manner as approved by the City Engineer or his or her representative.
