521.01 Maintenance and repair private sewage collection tiles.

(A) As used in this chapter, "private sewage collection tile" means any tile, ditch, pipe, or other improvement installed by a private person to receive and convey sewage and sewage effluent from at least five household sewage treatment systems, as those systems are defined in section 3718.01 of the Revised Code.

(B) A board of township trustees may maintain and repair private sewage collection tiles located within a township road right-of-way in the township, where the expenditure from the township general fund for materials to maintain and repair the tiles does not exceed two hundred dollars for any one project. No maintenance or repair shall be performed that is paid for from the township general fund under this division until the board adopts a resolution authorizing the maintenance or repair. If material costs would exceed two hundred dollars, the board may proceed under this chapter to maintain and repair the tiles by assessing the cost against property based on the special benefits the property receives from the project.
