B. 
Wherever these documents refer to the Borough as the enforcing authority, authority for enforcement shall include East Cocalico Township and East Cocalico Township Authority, which collectively with the Borough of Adamstown have enforcement authority for those users of the Borough's POTW located within East Cocalico Township.
The remedies provided for in this article are not exclusive. Enforcement may consist of any, all, or any combination of these actions against a noncompliant user. Enforcement of pretreatment violations will generally be in accordance with the Borough of Adamstown's Enforcement Response Plan. However, East Cocalico, as the enforcing authority, may take other action against any user when the circumstances warrant. Further, East Cocalico, as the enforcing authority, is empowered to take more than one enforcement action against any noncompliant user.
All users and owners shall remain responsible to East Cocalico Township and/or East Cocalico Township Authority for all costs and expenses incurred as a result of wastewater being either directly or indirectly discharged into the collection system, of such characteristics and/or quantity resulting in the need to repair, clean, replace and/or maintain the collection system.
The owner of each improved property connected to the wastewater system shall be responsible for all acts of tenants or other occupants of such improved property insofar as such acts shall be governed by provisions of this article and requirements.
The failure of the Borough of Adamstown and/or East Cocalico Township and/or East Cocalico Township Authority to insist upon strict performance of this article or any of the terms or conditions thereof shall not be construed as a waiver of any of its rights hereunder.
East Cocalico Township reserves the right to adopt, from time to time, such additional ordinances relating to the Adamstown POTW as it shall deem necessary and proper in connection with use and operation of the wastewater system, which ordinances shall become and shall be construed as part of this article.
