21.12.240 Service Location Change.

When the service connection of any premises does not come from the main in front of the premises, the Bureau shall, when a main is laid in front of said premises, after notifying the owner or tenant thereof, provide a service connection to the new main without charge and at the same time, cut the old service connection. The property owner shall be responsible for the building connection to the new service. When services are relocated the Bureau may require installation of backflow protection, as detailed in Section 21.12.320 "Contamination of the City Water Supply and Requirements for Backflow Protection."
