Can someone please explain something for me?

Because of my career I lived in many states over the past forty years, and have occasionally run into these type of agencies before.

Every place I encountered a water or sewer authority, I was given the option to pay an assessment only, or an assessment and connection charge. In other words, you couldn't escape the cost of water and sewer running past your house and being offered to you, but you did not have to connect.

CFPUA, however, evidently mandates connection.

Can anyone point out the relevant portions of the state Constitution or General Statutes that grants them such overreaching power? Quite frankly, I see little difference between mandatory connection and that idiotic demand that we all buy health insurance. They are both indicative of unbridled tyranny.

Has anyone ever challenged mandatory connection in court?
