Whenever two or more premises or residential units are served through one water meter and with only one sewer lateral connected to the sanitary main, the rates and charges for the use of the sewerage system of the city shall be established with a minimum charge based on water usage as measured by that single meter. If there are multiple sewer laterals serving the premises, the base user rate shall be based on the water usage of the premises for the first lateral and any additional laterals shall cause additional charges at the minimum base user rate for each of those laterals as well.
