§ 3306. Charges, lien
The owner or occupant of any tenement, house, or building, who takes the water of such municipal corporation shall be liable for the rent or price of the same, and the officers and agents of such municipal corporation intrusted with the care and superintendence of the water may at all reasonable times enter all premises so supplied to examine the pipes and fixtures and prevent any unnecessary waste. If any person, without the consent of such municipal corporation, shall use any water, a civil action on this statute may be maintained against such person by such municipal corporation for the recovery of damages therefor. The charges, rates or rents for water shall be a lien upon the real estate furnished with the municipal corporation water in the same manner and to the same effect as taxes are a lien on real estate under section 5061 of Title 32.
