SECTION 11.16 STORM WATER NOT TO BE DEPOSITED IN SEWERS

No roof, ground cellar or surface water shall be allowed to enter directly or indirectly the common sewer. All owners of buildings where roof, ground or surface water is being disposed of contrary to the provisions of the above shall be notified by the Director of Public Works to cease doing the same. The Director of Public Works shall also notify the Inspector of Plumbing, who shall cause the fixtures through which the water is being admitted to be sealed. If for any reason it becomes necessary to break the seal, it shall only be done by a licensed plumber or drain layer, who shall notify the Inspector of Plumbing, in writing, of his doings. The Inspector shall as soon as possible thereafter cause the fixtures to be resealed, the expense of sealing to be borne by the owner.
