1043.03  CALCULATION OF FEES.
   Water and sewer system investment fees shall be calculated as follows:
   (a)   A water system investment fee shall be determined for each property connected to the system calculated on the basis of the equivalent number of units served.
      (1)   For residential connections on a single meter, there shall be one fee for the first dwelling unit plus an additional eight-tenths of the standard fee for each additional unit.
      (2)   For nonresidential connections, the fee shall be calculated on the basis of the size of the meter converted to equivalent residential units which could be served by a similar size meter as shown in the table set forth below in this subsection.  The maximum nonresidential equivalency shall be fifteen units.
      (3)   For nonresidential water system connections, the property owner shall pay the fee in accordance with the calculation established in the table set forth below in this subsection unless the connection is established to include a fire suppression system, sprinklers and/or private fire hydrants in which case the owner shall pay the water system investment fee based on the equivalent residential unit for the size of the connection made for potable water.
      (4)   For nonresidential sewer system connections, the property owner shall pay the fee in accordance with the calculation established in the table set forth below in this subsection unless the connection is established to include a fire suppression system, sprinklers and/or private fire hydrants, in which case the owner shall pay the sewer investment fee based on the equivalent residential unit(s) for the size of connection made for potable water.
   For the purpose of calculating equivalent residential units for nonresidential services, the following table shall apply.  One equivalent residential unit shall equal seven hundred fifty dollars ($750.00).

   (b)   A sewer system investment fee shall be determined as follows:
      (1)   The sewer system investment fee shall be computed by multiplying the water system investment average by the ratio of the sewer system book value to the water system book value.  The water system investment average is defined as the current book value of fixed assets divided by the number of equivalent residential units.  The current book value of fixed assets already financed by current or previous sewer system customers shall be calculated based upon the total dollar cost of fixed assets.
      (2)   For the purpose of calculating equivalent residential units for nonresidential services, the following table shall apply:
