All water furnished by the city to consumers shall be measured through a meter furnished by the city or pursuant to city specifications under the supervision of the superintendent of public utilities, and each parcel of property shall be served by its own service line and meter, and no connection with the water system shall be made by extending the service line from one property to another property. Meter, as referred to in this article, shall include a double check valve backflow prevention device for residential taps. All commercial and industrial users shall install at their expense such cross connection protection device as required by the Wyoming department of environmental quality. In cases where service lines were extended from one property to a different property prior to adoption of this section, the continued use of such extension shall be permitted until replacement is necessary, or a parcel of property has delinquent water charges and service is to be disconnected (and such disconnection will affect service to other properties), at which time separate connection shall be made to the water main at the expense of the owners of each property served by such original line extension and the expense shall be divided equally between the owners. The extended service line shall then be discontinued. This section shall not be construed as prohibiting a single service line to serve a single structure under one roof occupying more than one property. If a property occupied by more than one dwelling which is served by a single service line is subdivided, a separate service line shall be installed for each dwelling. (Ord. 627, 7-20-1989)

(b) There must be an unobstructed portion of the driveway at least two hundred (200) lineal feet by ten feet (10') wide dedicated to automobiles waiting to use the car wash facility.

(c) Vacuuming machines may be permitted only upon a showing that its use will not interfere with the movement of other vehicles using the station and that all precautions are taken to reduce the noise to the lowest level possible.

(d) There must be a designated on site area for persons wishing to park a vehicle and hand dry it after the car wash. This area may not interfere with ingress and egress to the gas station site or the car wash facility. This area shall contain at least seven hundred fifty (750) square feet for each automobile capable of being washed at any one time.

(e) Prior to installing the car wash facility, the owner must submit a plan to the village for preventing water from leaving the actual car wash facility. This plan shall be subject to review and approval by the village.

(f) All drive surfaces on the site which may be used for egress upon exiting the car wash facility shall be provided with rumble strips and automatic heating devices for a reasonable length which operate when the drive surface falls below thirty two degrees Fahrenheit (32°F) and which are capable of keeping ice from forming down to ten degrees Fahrenheit (10°).

(k) At such time as the chief of police or person acting in his stead, in his sole discretion believes that intensive use of the facility is causing a traffic hazard on adjacent roadways, he may order the facility closed until such hazard is removed. An order of closing under these circumstances may not extend beyond four (4) consecutive hours. Under no circumstances may an employee of the facility or any other person not designated by the village be permitted to direct traffic onto or off of adjacent roadways.
