For purposes of this section, one EDU shall be defined as the average use of 310 gallons of wastewater flow per day over one calendar year. Table 11-1 of Section 327 IAC 3-6-11, shall be used to determine the number of EDUs for all users, unless the Board of Public Works and Safety of the City of Noblesville determines to the contrary. EDU calculations will be rounded to the nearest 0.1 of an EDU. For example a calculation of 0.05 EDU would round up to 0.1 EDU and a calculation of 0.04 EDU would round down to 0.00 EDU.
