There is a billing charge each time a bill is rendered effective as follows:
In addition to the billing charge, there is a charge for all water drawn for each 1,000 gallons effective as follows:
* To obtain Agricultural Quantity Charges, a service holder must submit a written application each fiscal year to the Board of Water Supply and furnish satisfactory proof that they are engaged in crop production, stock raising or dairy farming on a commercial basis. Each approved application shall continue in effect entitling the service holder to these charges for the remainder of the fiscal year, until they cease the activities entitling them to these charges, or until new charges are established.
** The Nonpotable Quantity Charge effective from July 1, 1993 shall not supersede existing or individually negotiated nonpotable quantity charge agreements.
STANDBY CHARGE: A Standby Charge will be negotiated by the Manager and Chief Engineer with private water systems contracting for Inter-connection service. Such service shall be provided only for emergency or unscheduled service outages or supply reductions with the intent to protect against interrupted water service supporting normal private system requirements. Water drawn shall be charged at the applicable quantity rate for each thousand gallons or portion thereof.
ON-SITE DISTRIBUTION TARIFF: Consumers may be assessed an On-Site Distribution Tariff for Department maintenance of property piping if they elect to have the Board provide such service. Maintenance shall be limited to repair and renewal of "after the meter" service appurtenances eligible for coverage.
POWER COST ADJUSTMENT: When total electricity costs to the Board of Water Supply exceeds the amount used in calculating the annual Schedule of Rates and Charges, then the Quantity Charge may be increased $0.01 per 1,000 gallons for every $600,000 incremental overage, or any fraction thereof, in the following fiscal year rate.
ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS COMPLIANCE FEE COST ADJUSTMENT: The Quantity Charge may be increased $0.01 per 1,000 gallons for each $600,000 or fraction thereof of additional costs that the Board of Water Supply is required to incur in order to comply with any Federal or State environmental law or regulation.
