In making all future connections with the District water supply system, each individual building shall be considered an individual consumer and shall be supplied through a separate service connection and meter except as provided for by ordinance. Provided, that the term ”future connection” shall include any and all connections hereafter made, and may include, at the discretion of the District, the modification of existing connections.
SERVICE CONNECTION – NO WATER MAIN IN STREET
Whenever an applicant requests water service to premises that do not have a standard main adjacent to the premises, a standard main must be installed as a prerequisite to connection to the District water system. The standard main must conform to generally accepted water works engineering practices and the water system of the District. The main must be installed along the complete street frontage of the premises to be served. The property owner shall enter into a mainline extension agreement with the District. The District may contract with the property owner to provide for the reimbursement of such property owner and his assigns for return of construction expense as outlined in a mainline extension agreement.
A standard main may be installed by the following method: A contractor, under the supervision and approval of the District, may install the main at the property owner’s expenses.
CONNECTION TO WATER MAIN
Upon the receipt of the connection charges, the District shall cause the premises described in the application to be connected with the District’s water main by a service pipe extending from the main to the meter box, which connection shall thereafter be maintained and kept within the exclusive control of the District.
Except as provided in “C” below, each unit in a multi-unit structure or multiples structure shall have its own meter.
A single service line may be allowed to a multi-unit structure or multiple structures, provided that one owner has agreed in writing to assume and be responsible for and pay the total water bill without any deductions for vacancies or other reasons. Base account charges shall be charged for each unit even though separate meters are not required for each unit.
ENLARGING OR REMOVING SERVICE CONNECTIONS
When an existing building is altered, or when new buildings are to be erected on the site of existing buildings, and it is desired to increase the size or change the location of the existing service connection, or where a service connection to any premises is abandoned or no longer used, the District may remove such service connection, after which, should a service connection be required to the premises, a new service shall be placed only upon the owner making an application and paying for a new service connection in the regular manner. Such new connection shall be subject to another basic capacity expansion charge, as outlined in the appropriate District ordinance. An additional capacity expansion charge shall also be charged for any connections and/or usage that are greater than the original application. Credit will be given for capacity expansion charges previously paid.
It is unlawful for any plumber or other person to make connection with any District water main, or any conduit or pipe belonging to or under control of the District, without the prior approval of the District, or to make any such connection after service to the premises has been disconnected, or to turn water service on or off to any premises without permission of the District.
The District reserves the right to make special contracts, the provisions and conditions of which may be different from or have exception to the regular published rates. Such special contracts shall be in writing, approve by the Board, and signed by proper County officials and the customer to be served.
