I have a project where a proposed building location is on top of an existing sewer lateral from an existing facility. The proposed building location is between the existing facility and the main sanitary line. There is no room to move the proposed building. I recommended to relocate the existing sewer line around the new building, but the client wants to connect the existing sewer line to the new buildings plumbing. Basically run the existing building's sewer through the new plumbing beneath the proposed building. The existing sewer line only supports a floor drain, but I don't think it is a good idea to connect the existing lateral to the new building plumbing system. Are there any Florida state rules or plumbing codes against the client's proposed scenario?
