As used in this Article, the term "Utility Director" shall mean the supervisor of the Trenton Municipal Utilities.
[R.O. 2011 §400.768; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.01), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
In any case in which a developer stalls or causes the installment of water, sewer, electrical power, telephone or cable television facilities and intends that such facilities shall be owned, operated or maintained by a public utility or any entity other than the developer, the developer shall transfer to such utility or entity the necessary ownership or easement rights to enable the utility or entity to operate and maintain such facilities.
[R.O. 2011 §400.770; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.02), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Whenever it is legally possible and practicable in terms of topography to connect a lot with a City water or sewer line by running a connecting line not more than two hundred (200) feet from the lot to such line, then no use requiring water or sewage disposal service may be made of such lot unless connection is made to such line.
B. 
Connection to such water or sewer line is not legally possible if, in order to make connection with such line by a connecting line that does not exceed two hundred (200) feet in length, it is necessary to run the connecting line over property not owned by the owner of the property to be served by the connection and, after diligent effort, the easement necessary to run the connecting line cannot reasonably be obtained.
C. 
For purposes of this Article, a lot is "served" by a City-owned water or server line if connection is required by this Section.
[R.O. 2011 §400.773; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.03), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
Every principal use and every lot within a subdivision shall be served by a sewage disposal system that is adequate to accommodate the reasonable needs of such use or subdivision lot and that complies with all applicable health regulations of the Missouri DNR or Department of Health or their successor agencies.
[R.O. 2011 §400.775; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.04), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Primary responsibility for determining whether a proposed development will comply with the standard set forth in Section 400.773 often lies with an agency other than the City and the developer must comply with the detailed standards and specifications of such other agency. The relevant agencies are listed in Subsection (B). Whenever any such agency requires detailed construction or design drawings before giving its official approval to the proposed sewage disposal system, the authority issuing a permit under this Chapter may rely upon a preliminary review by such agency of the basic design elements of the proposed sewage disposal system to determine compliance with Section 400.773. However, construction of such system may not be commenced until the detailed plans and specifications have been reviewed and any appropriate permits issued by such agency.
B. 
In the following table, the column on the left describes the type of development and the column on the right indicates the agency that must certify to the City whether the proposed sewage disposal system complies with the standard set forth in Section 400.773.
If
Then
1. The use is located on a lot that is served by the City sewer system or a previously approved, privately-owned package treatment plant, and the use can be served by a simple connection to the system (as in the case of a single-family residence) rather than the construction of an internal collection system (as in the case of a shopping center or apartment complex):
No further certification is necessary.
2. The use (other than a subdivision) is located on a lot that is served by the City sewer system but service to the use necessitates construction of an internal collection system (as in the case of a shopping center or apartment complex); and
a. The internal collection system is to be transferred to and maintained by the City:
The Utility Director must certify to the City that the proposed internal collection system meets the City's specifications and will be accepted by the City. (A "Permit to Construct" must be obtained from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Macon Regional Office, or its successor agency.)
b. The internal collection system is to be privately maintained:
The Utility Director must certify that the proposed collection system is adequate.
3. The use (other than a subdivision) is not served by the City system but is to be served by a privately operated sewage treatment system (that has not previously been approved) with 3,000 gallons or less design capacity, the effluent from which does not discharge to surface waters:
The Missouri Department of Health will be asked to certify to the City that the proposed system complies with all applicable State and local health regulations.
4. The use (other than a subdivision) is to be served by a privately operated sewage treatment system (not previously approved) has a design capacity of more than 3,000 gallons or that discharges effluent into surface waters:
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources will be requested to certify to the City that the proposed system complies with all applicable State regulations. (A "Permit to Construct" and a "Permit to Discharge" must be obtained from DNR.)
5. The proposed use is a subdivision; and
a. Lots within the subdivision are to be served by simple connection to existing City lines or lines of a previously approved private system:
No further certification is necessary.
b. Lots within the subdivision are to be served by the City system but the developer will be responsible for installing the necessary additions to the City system:
The Utility Director shall certify to the City that the proposed system meets the City's specifications and will be accepted by the City. (A "Permit to Construct" must be obtained from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and a copy of said permit shall be supplied to the City.)
c. Lots within the subdivision are to be served by a sewage treatment system that has not been approved, that has a design capacity of 3,000 gallons or less, and that does not discharge into surface waters:
The City's engineer must certify that the proposed system complies with all applicable State and local health regulations. If each lot within the subdivision is to be served by a separate on-site disposal system, the Missouri Department of Health must certify that each lot shown on a major subdivision preliminary plat can be served, and each lot on a major or minor subdivision final plat can be served by an on-site disposal system.
d. Lots within the subdivision are to be served by a privately operated sewage treatment system (not previously approved) that has a design capacity in excess of 3,000 gallons or that discharges effluent into surface waters:
The City's engineer shall certify that the proposed system complies with all applicable State regulations. (A "Permit to Construct" and a "Permit to Discharge" must be obtained from DNR.)
[R.O. 2011 §400.778; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.05), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]

[R.O. 2011 §400.783; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.07), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Subject to Subsection (B), all public streets, sidewalks and other common areas or facilities in subdivisions created after the effective date of this Chapter shall be sufficiently illuminated to ensure the security of property and the safety of persons using such streets, sidewalks and other common areas or facilities. The minimum illumination, projected downward, will be used.
B. 
All roads, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots and other common areas and facilities in unsubdivided development shall be sufficiently illuminated to ensure the security of property and the safety of persons using such roads, driveways, sidewalks, parking lots and other common areas and facilities.
C. 
All entrances and exits in substantial buildings used for non-residential purposes and in two-family or multi-family residential developments containing more than four (4) dwelling units shall be adequately lighted to ensure the safety of persons and the security of the buildings.
[R.O. 2011 §400.785; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.08), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
Lighting within any lot that unnecessarily illuminates any other lot and substantially interferes with the use or enjoyment of such other lot is prohibited. Lighting unnecessarily illuminates another lot if it clearly exceeds the standard set forth in Section 400.783 or if the standard set forth in this Section could reasonably be achieved in a manner that would not substantially interfere with the use or enjoyment of neighboring properties.
[R.O. 2011 §400.788; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.09), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Every principal use and every lot within a subdivision shall have available to it a source of electric power adequate to accommodate the reasonable needs of such use and every lot within such subdivision. Compliance with this requirement shall be determined as follows:
1. 
If the use is not a subdivision and is located on a lot that is served by an existing power line and the use can be served by a simple connection to such power line (as opposed to a more complex distribution system, such as would be required in an apartment complex or shopping center), then no further certification is needed.
2. 
If the use is a subdivision or is not located on a lot served by an existing power line or a substantial internal distribution system will be necessary, then the electric utility service provider must review the proposed plans and certify to the City that it can provide service that is adequate to meet the needs of the proposed use and every lot within the proposed subdivision.
[R.O. 2011 §400.790; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.10), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Every principal use and every lot within a subdivision must have available to it a telephone service cable adequate to accommodate the reasonable needs of such use and every lot within such subdivision. Compliance with this requirement shall be determined as follows:
1. 
If the use is not a subdivision and is located on a lot that is served by an existing telephone line and the use can be served by a simple connection to such telephone line (as opposed to a more complex distribution system, such as would be required in an apartment complex or shopping center), then no further certification is necessary.
2. 
If the use is a subdivision or is not located on a lot served by an existing telephone line or a substantial internal distribution system will be necessary, then the telephone utility company must review the proposed plans and certify to the City that it can provide service that is adequate to meet the needs of the proposed use and every lot within the proposed subdivision.
[R.O. 2011 §400.793; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.11), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
All electric power lines (not to include transformers or enclosures containing electrical equipment including, but not limited to, switches, meters or capacitors which may be pad mounted), telephone, gas distribution and cable television lines in subdivisions constructed after the effective date of this Chapter shall be placed underground in accordance with the specifications and policies of the respective utility service providers and located in accordance with City ordinance or regulation.
B. 
Whenever an unsubdivided development is hereafter constructed on a lot that is undeveloped on the effective date of this Chapter, then all electric power, telephone, gas distribution and cable television lines installed to serve the development that are located on the development site outside of a previously existing public street right-of-way shall be placed underground in accordance with the specifications and policies of the respective utility companies.
[R.O. 2011 §400.795; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.12), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Whenever it can reasonably be anticipated that utility facilities constructed in one (1) development will be extended to serve other adjacent or nearby developments, such utility facilities (e.g., water or sewer lines) shall be located and constructed so that extensions can be made conveniently and without undue burden or expense or unnecessary duplication of service.
B. 
All utility facilities shall be constructed in such a manner as to minimize interference with pedestrian or vehicular traffic and to facilitate maintenance without undue damage to improvements or facilities located within the development.
[R.O. 2011 §400.798; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.13), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
Whenever a developer installs or causes to be installed any utility line in any public right-of-way, the developer shall, as soon as practicable after dilation is complete and before acceptance of any water or sewer line, provide the City with a copy of a drawing that shows the exact location of such utility lines. Such drawings must be verified as accurate by the utility service provider. Compliance with this requirement shall be a condition of the continued validity of the permit authorizing such development.
[R.O. 2011 §400.800; Ord. No. 01-10 §1(16.14), 4-9-2001; Ord. No. 04-25 §1, 7-26-2004]
A. 
Every development (subdivided or unsubdivided) that is served by a public water system shall include a system of fire hydrants sufficient to provide adequate fire protection for the buildings located or intended to be located within such development.
B. 
The presumption established by this Chapter is that to satisfy the standard set forth in Subsection (A), fire hydrants must be located so that all parts of every building within the development may be served by a hydrant by laying not more than five hundred (500) feet of hose connected to such hydrant. However, the Fire Chief may authorize or require a deviation from this standard if in his or her professional opinion another arrangement more satisfactorily complies with the standard set forth in Subsection (A).
C. 
The City Administrator shall determine the precise location of all fire hydrants, subject to the other provisions of this Section. In general, fire hydrants shall be placed six (6) feet behind the curb line of publicly dedicated streets that have curb and gutter.
D. 
The City Administrator shall determine the design standards of all hydrants based on fire flow needs. Unless otherwise specified by the Fire Chief, all hydrants shall have two (2) two and one-half (2½) inch hose connections and one (1) four and one-half (4½) inch hose connection. The two (2) two and one-half (2½) inch hose connections shall be at least twenty-one and one-half (21½) inches from the ground level. All hydrants threads shall be national standard threads.
E. 
Water lines that serve hydrants shall be at least six (6) inch lines and, unless no other practicable alternative is available, no such lines shall be dead-end lines.
