Section 134-44 WASTE, UNAUTHORIZED USE OF WATER
A. If the occupant of a lot or tenement, on which has been erected or placed a hydrant, cock or other fixture to supply water, shall permit the water to run from hydrant, cock or fixture without proper care to prevent waste or shall permit the water to be used, taken or received by any person other than such occupant or member or visitor of his family, except in cases of necessity, there shall in each case be imposed a fine on the occupant of not less than five dollars ($5.) nor more than twenty-five dollars ($25.). In the latter case, there shall be a like fine on the person so using, taking or receiving the water. In every such case, the town shall stop the water from such lot or tenement and not turn it on again until a satisfactory assurance is given that a like case will not happen again. If any hydrant, cock or other fixture is found leaking, and the owner or occupant of the premises shall refuse or fail to have the necessary repairs made, or if any hydrant, located in an exposed place is not protected so as to prevent its being used by the public generally, the town may cut off the supply of water, and there shall be imposed a fine of twenty-five dollars ($25.) on any person who shall turn on the water before such repairs are made or the hydrant is protected as aforesaid.
B. All willful waste of water and waste through neglect of servants or agents or by any fixture being out of order or allowing water to be taken from premises by persons having no right to use it, except in cases of necessity, shall be sufficient cause of cutting off the supply to any premises and forfeiture of the amount of the bill paid in advance or sufficient cause for withholding the supply for such terms as the town may decide.
