An Ordinance Regarding Sewer Taps and Reapirs, and Associated Street Repairs (Village)
Introduced by Mr. MacGilvray
WHEREAS, the Council for the Village has determined that clarifying the ordinances of the Village regarding taps and repairs to the sanitary sewer lines and storm sewer lines, and associated street repairs, will benefit the residents of the Village.
Be it ordained by the Council of the Village of Riverlea, State of Ohio::
That Riverlea Code Section 150.054 is hereby amended by adding a new title and section:
150.54 Sewer Lines and Drainage of Storm Waters
No person, firm or corporation shall open or tap any sewer or construct any drain or
sewer in any street, alley or public place in the Village or open or dig in any street, alley or
public place in the Village for the purpose above mentioned or for the repair of any sewer or
sewer connection without first obtaining from the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee a permit to do such work.
No dwelling shall be hereafter erected, constructed or renovated unless adequate provision is made for the drainage of all storm, rain, or snow waters from the dwelling directly to street gutters or storm sewers.
Before a permit shall be issued the person applying therefor must furnish to the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee the name of the owner of the property, number of the lot for the benefit of which any tap is to be made or which such drain, sewer or sewer connection serves, the street on which same is located, between what streets and the subdivision in which the lot is located, also the name of the owner of the benefitted property or lot.
The homeowner will hire a contractor to perform a video inspection of the lateral sewer line and its connection with the wye, and will submit a copy of the video report to the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner for review and approval before commencing any work.
No person shall do any of the work herein mentioned except in strict accordance with the
provisions of this chapter.
No permit shall be issued except to a duly licensed sewer tapper or until such sewer
tapper has filed with the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee a bond in such sum as may be determined by the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee and to the satisfaction of the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee
such bond shall be conditioned on the execution of all work in conformity with all ordinances
and laws. The signers of such bond shall be made specifically liable to the Village for all expense
of repairs, removal of surplus material, cleaning up and damage incurred by the Village by
reason of any work done by the licensee.
Each building used as a place of residence hereafter connected with the sewer system of
the Village shall be connected with the system by a house sewer separately and independently
from all other buildings similarly used.
Any person obtaining a permit as provided in division (A) hereof shall retain the number
thereof and must notify the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee at least one day before making any tap or laying any pipe. In so reporting the number of the permit must be given. No tap or connection shall be made except in the presence of the Street Commissioner or designee or an authorized Village inspector.
No private sewer shall be constructed in public highways or property except upon plans
approved by the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee. Such sewers must be built upon line and grade furnished by the Engineer employed by the Village and under his supervision or that of the Street Commissioner and Planning Commissioner or designee. The expense of such lines and grades and inspection shall be paid by the owner or owners of such private sewer.
No connection shall be made with any sewer from any vault, cesspool, roof or surface
drain. No connection shall be made from any cellar drain, meaning thereby pipe or tile laid for
the purpose of intercepting sub-soil water about the foundations of any building except by
special permission of the Village Engineer or designee. No connections shall be made from any
other sub-surface drainage system designed to receive and remove sub-soil waters.
All openings and obstructions in any street, sidewalk, or other dangerous place shall be
carefully guarded and protected and lighted during the night with red lights. Excavations shall
not be left open longer than absolutely necessary and all other precautions shall be taken to guard
against accident and to inconvenience property owners and the public to the least possible extent.
The homeowner is responsible for all costs of excavation, construction, installation and repair for any lateral sewer lines and sanitary sewer line up to the wye connection in the main sewer line, and any associated costs related to street repairs up to the main sewer line, unless the Village Council determines otherwise. This applies to new home builds and also to repairs to existing lines.
If the wye also needs to be replaced, the Village may pay for the wye but not any excavation or resurfacing costs.
