         Volume x (debt service charge) + volume x (base user charge) x (factor) = charge
      (2)   A laundry operation incidental to the principal use of the facility shall not bear a surcharge, provided that such laundry shall only apply to their on-site operation.
      (3)   Coin-operated laundries have been found to discharge wastewaters below normal sewage strengths and therefore shall not bear a surcharge.  Other types of laundries will be considered industrial users except as noted in the preceding paragraph.
   (d)   A surcharge on industrial users with waste which has a strength stronger than the normal sewage shall be computed using:
 
Effective September 1, 1998:

BOD/COD
0.1238 per pound
Suspended solids
0.1728 per pound

1.6303 per pound
Phosphorus
1.6911 per pound
 
with the surcharge factor computed per the 1998 sewer rate study prepared by the Superintendent of the Wastewater Pollution Control Plant and on file in the Council Clerk's office.  The value to be used for BOD/COD shall be the higher of the value of BOD or 62.5% of the value of COD.  The minimum industrial surcharge factor used shall be 1.00.
