Section 148-32 WATER SUPPLY.
A. Complete water main line systems installed in accordance with plans and specifications approved by the town shall be required improvements in each subdivision or development to serve each subdivision, except where town water lines are not available to the subdivision site and individual wells are to be employed. Where determined feasible by the town, water lines serving any cul-de-sac or other dead-end street exceeding three hundred (300) feet in length shall be connected back in a loop to the water distribution system. A blowoff valve assembly shall be installed at the end of all temporary dead-end streets, where no permanent fire hydrant is installed or where no loop back into the water distribution system is provided, for the purpose of periodic flushing of the water mains. Such systems shall furnish an adequate supply of water to each lot and shall have adequate main sizes and fire hydrants located and installed in accordance with specifications of the Town of Front Royal. A copy of the approval of such system by the appropriate public agency or utility company shall be submitted with the final plat.
B. The water system and all service lines and appurtenances, except the water meter, shall be installed in accordance with the plans and profiles prepared for the subdivision or development by a professional engineer or licensed land surveyor and shall be approved by the Director of Public Works.
C. In instances where town water is not available to the subdivision site, the town may require the applicant to provide his own community water system in accordance with plans and specifications approved by the town and the State Department of Health. Agreements may be required as to the ownership and maintenance of private community water systems. A copy of the approval of such system by the appropriate public agency or utility company shall be submitted with the final plat.
D. Where the Town water system is accessible to the subdivision site, the connections from the system to the property line of each lot in the subdivision not served by Town water shall be made at the time the general site improvements are installed. The water connections shall be installed by the applicant at his own expense in accordance with the design and specifications of the Town of Front Royal and shall be inspected by the Town in each instance.
