Section 134-22.5 WATER NOT DISCHARGED TO SEWERS EXCLUDED FROM RATES
Whenever a property upon which a sewer use charge is herein imposed uses water for an institutional or commercial purpose such that the water so used is not discharged into the sewerage system of the Town, the quantity of water so used and not discharged into the Town's sewers shall be excluded in determining the sewer use charge of said property. Provided however, that the portion not discharged to the sewer, in the opinion of the Town Manager taking into consideration the administrative cost to the Town and expected reduction to the user's charges for sewer service, is a significant volume and provided that the quantity of water so used and not discharged into the Town's sewers is determined, by measuring the volume either discharged or not discharged into the Town's sanitary sewer system. The determination of volume shall be by a device or devices, meter or meters, approved by the Director of Public Works & Utilities, and installed and operated without cost to the Town or determined by other means or methods approved by said Director of Public Works & Utilities; all without cost to the Town and only upon recommendation of the Director of Finance and provided the water supply is metered and the user pays for the water at meter rates applicable to that user.
The sewer use charge based upon the consumption of Town water to be paid by the user of said utility services shall be computed at the rates provided for, less the quantity not discharged into the Town's sewers. This section shall not apply to rates set pursuant to Section 134-23 if specifically excepted by the Town Council as part of the rate schedule or contract approved by the Town Council.
