Section 890.170  Sewer and/or Water Required

 

a)         Each building which is intended for human habitation or occupancy shall have a connection to a public water system, a semi-private water system, or a private water supply constructed in accordance with the requirements of the Illinois Water Well Construction Code (77 Ill. Adm. Code 920) or the Surface Source Water Treatment Code ( 77 Ill. Adm.
