§ 54.173  SPRINKLING RATES.
   In order that the domestic and residential users of sewage service shall not be penalized for sprinkling lawns during the months of June, July and August, the billing for sewage service for residences or domestic users for the months of June, July and August shall be based upon 100% of the water usage for the previous months of December, January and February. In the event 100% of the water usage for the previous months of December, January and February is greater than the water usage for the months of June, July and August, then the billing for sewage services shall be computed on the actual water used in the month for which the sewage service bill is rendered. Domestic or residential sewage service as applicable to the sprinkling rate shall apply to each lot, parcel of real estate or building which is occupied and used as a residence. The sprinkling rate shall not apply to any premises which are partially or wholly used for commercial or industrial purposes. In the event a portion of the premises shall be used for commercial or industrial purposes, the owner shall have the privilege of separating the water services so that the residential portion of the premises is served through a separate meter and in such case the water usage as registered by the water meter serving that portion of the premises used for residential purposes would qualify under the sprinkling rate.
