(A) The policy shall apply to non-residential property within the corporate limits of the city, and to non-residential property contiguous to the corporate limits of the city, provided that the owner of the non-residential property shall agree to the annexation of the property into the city limits.
(B) For any non-residential sanitary sewer or water service in which the city shall participate under the provisions of this section, the owner of the non-residential property (hereinafter referred to as “owner”) shall furnish the City Engineer and facilities manager a copy of the plans and specifications for the sewer or water improvements and an itemized estimate of the cost for the sewer or water pipe, all of which shall be prepared by a registered professional engineer.
(C) The owner shall secure, at its expense, good and sufficient easements and rights-of-way at least 25 feet in width for the purpose of installing the sewer or water lines in question. The easements and rights-of-way shall also permit the installation of all other city utilities over, under, through and across the property to be burdened by the easements and rights-of-way. The easements and rights-of-way shall prohibit the construction of permanent structures and encroachments in the easement. The easements and rights-of-way shall be to and for the benefit of the city and they shall be in a form acceptable to the city. The easements and rights-of-way shall begin at the point where the services then exist and shall extend to the owner's property boundary, and across the owner's property at reasonable places if so desired by the city.
(D) The city shall participate in the construction of the sanitary sewer or water lines beyond the boundaries of the owner's property (off-site) on the following basis:
(1) The owner, at its expense, shall pay for the construction of the water or sanitary sewer lines for the first 250 linear feet, commencing at the point where the water or sanitary sewer lines then exist;
(2) The city, at its expense, shall install the next 500 linear feet of sanitary sewer or water lines, provided that the pipe and materials necessary for the installation shall be furnished by the owner at its expense, and further provided, that if it becomes necessary to remove rock in order to install the lines, the owner, at its expense, shall be responsible for the removal of the rock; and
(3) The construction of any additional off-site or water lines shall be at the sole expense of the owner.
(E) Should the city request the owner to install sanitary sewer or water lines greater in size than those lines which a registered professional engineer has determined are adequate to service the owner's property, then the owner shall install the larger lines (excess capacity lines) and the city shall contribute to the difference between the cost of the pipe for the lines needed by the owner and the cost of the pipe for the excess capacity lines. The city's participation shall be as follows: The city shall determine what its pipeline installation cost per linear foot is and it shall install off-site excess capacity lines for more than the 500 feet provided for hereinabove, provided that once the city's cost of installing additional excess capacity lines has equalled the difference in pipe cost, the city shall cease to install additional excess capacity lines. The owner shall continue to be liable for the removal of any rock. In determining the need for excess capacity lines, the city shall follow the guidelines of the City of Claremore-Rogers County Metropolitan Area Comprehensive Plan or it shall base its decision upon anticipated future development in the area. The cost of the pipe for the excess capacity lines shall be based upon a supplier's itemized statements and invoices showing the costs.
(F) The city's participation in the installation of the lines shall be done at the convenience of the city and upon the availability of the equipment necessary to perform the installation.
(G) The owner, at its expense, shall construct the water distribution system, fire hydrant system, the sanitary sewer system, and the storm, water run-off facilities (including detention or retention basins if required) within the owner's property boundary lines (on-site).
(H) If the sanitary sewer system improvements require the construction of a sanitary sewer lift station, the lift station shall be constructed at the owner's expense. After the lift station has been in operation for 12 months, the owner may request the city to accept maintenance of the lift station. Prior to the acceptance of the lift station, the city shall reinspect the lift station to satisfy itself that the lift station still meets the city's standards and regulations regarding the construction, installation and operation thereof. The city shall become responsible for maintenance of the lift station from the time it reinspects the lift station and it accepts responsibility for maintenance of the lift station in writing, provided that as express conditions of its acceptance, the lift station must be in compliance with city standards and regulations and the owner must furnish the city a good and sufficient bond in a sum equal to the cost of construction of the lift station, with adequate surety, on behalf of the city, to protect the city against defective workmanship and materials for a period of one year after the city's acceptance of the lift station. Further, prior to acceptance of the lift station, the owner shall have furnished to the city all operational manuals, pump curve charts, impeller size, electrical control panel configuration and any other information regarding the operation of the sanitary sewer lift station.
(I) All sanitary sewer or water lines and appurtenances thereto, including but not limited to lift stations, water taps and sewer taps, shall be constructed and installed in strict compliance with city specifications and other applicable municipal, state and federal laws and regulations.
