If there are code enforcement issues with the property, the city can prevent water from being turned on even if you own the property until those code issues are corrected. So, even if you do own the property and you have rights, the city may enforce their ordinances to make you comply with those ordinances before they allow water service to the property. That is the right government has for public safety administration through their code and ordinance enforcement.
