§ 94-34. Water From Other Than Government-Owned Water System.
For a property which uses water, all or a part of which is from a source other than a government-owned
water system, there shall be a sewer user charge, separate from and in addition to any sewer user charge
based on the consumption of water from the government-owned water system.
Such separate or additional sewer user charges shall be measured by the quantity of water
from the source other than the government-owned water system which is discharged into
the County's sewers from such property. The owner of such property shall install, without
cost to the County, a meter to measure the quantity of water received from a source other
than the government-owned water system and discharged into the County's sewer. No
meter shall be installed or be used for such purposes without the approval of the County.
The owner of such property shall pay for such water so discharged into the County's
sewers an amount as though all such water came from the government-owned water
If the owner of such property fails to install and maintain, at his own expense, an
approved meter, the County shall make an estimate of the amount of water from sources
other than the government-owned water system which is discharged into the County's
sewers from such property, using the consumption from similar operations, and if none, a
formula based upon the operations of the business of the occupant of the premises as a
standard, and bill such estimated water so discharged into the County's sewer as though
the same were metered.
