21.24.040 Access to Premises for Inspection.

To the full extent permitted by law, employees of the Bureau shall have free access, at proper hours of the day, to all parts of buildings and premises for the purpose of inspecting the condition of the water pipes and plumbing fixtures to determine whether cross-connections or other structural or sanitary hazards exist, and the manner in which the water is being used. Whenever the owner of any premise supplied by the Bureau restrains authorized City employees from making such necessary inspections or refuses access therefor, water service may be refused or discontinued.
