§ 51.400  USER CLASSIFICATIONS.
   (A)   Every person whose premises are served by said sewer works shall be charged for the services provided. These charges are established for each user class, as defined, in order that the sewerage system shall recover, from each user and user class, revenue which is proportional to its use of the POTW in terms of volume and load.
   (B)   User charges are levied to defray the cost of operation and maintenance (including replacement) of the POTW. User charges shall be uniform in magnitude within a user class.
      (1)   User charges are subject to the rules and regulations adopted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, published in the Federal Register August 21, 1973 (38 CFR 22523) and on February 11, 1974 (39 CFR 5252). Replacement costs, which are recovered through the system of user charges, shall be based upon the expected service life of the sewerage system plant and equipment.
      (2)   The various classes of users of the POTW, for the purposes of this subchapter, shall be as follows: Class I - Residential, Commercial, Institutional, Governmental, Industrial.
