For purposes of grounding metallic frames, casings and other enclosures of equipment receiving power from ungrounded alternating current power systems, the following methods of grounding will be approved:
(a) A solid connection between the metallic frame, casing, or other metal enclosure and the grounded metallic sheath, armor, or conduit enclosing the power conductor feeding the electrical equipment enclosed;
(b) A solid connection to a borehole casing having low resistance to earth;
(c) A solid connection to metal waterlines having low resistance to earth;
(d) A solid connection to a grounding conductor extending to a low resistance ground field located on the surface;
(e) Any other method of grounding, approved by an authorized representative of the Secretary, which ensures that there is no difference in potential between such metal enclosures and the earth.
(a) A violation of any court order issued pursuant to this division is punishable as a contempt of court by a fine of not less than five hundred dollars ($500) nor more than seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000), or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. Evidence concerning the duration and repetitive nature of the violations shall be considered by the court in determining the penalty for contempt.
(b) Upon finding that a defendant has willfully violated an order issued pursuant to this division, the court may issue any additional orders necessary to abate the drug-related nuisance or to carry out the punishment for contempt.
(c) The court may suspend the effectiveness of an order of abatement for no more than 90 days if the owner of the property establishes that he or she had no knowledge of the drug-related nuisance, and could not reasonably be expected to have knowledge, and the owner avers under oath that he or she will immediately undertake specified measures to abate the nuisance for the following two-year period. An abatement order issued pursuant to this subsection may not be issued for the benefit of a defendant who has been found in contempt of court as part of the same action. An order issued pursuant to this subsection is a suspension and is not a withdrawal of the original order.
(d) The courts shall cancel the order of abatement if the owner of the property satisfies the court that the drug-related nuisance has been abated for the past 90 days, corrects all housing code and health code violations, and posts a bond in an amount to be determined by the court, which shall be immediately forfeitable if the drug-related nuisance recurs during the following two-year period.
