  10.  Any water or wastes which, by interaction with other water or wastes in the public sewer system, release obnoxious gases, form suspended solids which interfere with the collection system or create a condition deleterious to structures and treatment processes.
  11.  No person in the business of gathering and disposing of septic tank or hauled wastes shall transfer such material into any disposal area or sewer manhole located within the village areas.
