   (A)   Generally. Where water service has been terminated because of delinquent sewer service charges as authorized by 53 P.S. §§ 3102.501 et seq., as amended, water service shall not thereafter be reinstated until such time as all sewer charges, including lien fees, penalties and charges paid to the public water provider for turnoff services are paid in full.
   (B)   Exception.
      (1)   Where the delinquent amount exceeds $1,000 and the property is not currently occupied as a residence or business, the owner may have water service reinstated following entry into a payment plan.
      (2)   The payment plan shall require:
         (a)   A minimum down payment of at least $400;
         (b)   Provide for full payment of all delinquent amounts within one year; and
         (c)   Require the owner to pay all current sewer charges.
   (C)   Failure to make payment. Failure to make any payment when due shall result in the immediate termination of the payment plan and the initiation of water termination procedures.
   (D)   Lien. Entry into the payment plan shall not preclude the township from entering a municipal lien to secure its interests.
