Sec. 34-14. Adjustments to sewer bill.
(a) The amount of sewage billed at the rates contained in Section 34-12.1 shall be based on the amount of water consumed for the billing period unless contracts for the treatment of industrial wastes provide for specific terms to the contrary. Industrial, commercial, or institutional customers may apply for relief to provisions of Section 34-12.1 on an annual basis provided that ample documentation is provided by March 1 of each year to the director of utilities, or his /her designee, to show that water consumed is not returned to the collection system to be treated as waste at the waste treatment plant. Alternatively, industrial, commercial, or institutional customers may apply for relief through the installation of city-owned water-only meters for uses that return little or no water to the collection system.
(b) All sewer bill adjustment systems intended to determine the amount of water not returned to sewer shall be designed, installed, operated, and maintained in accordance with the City of Lynchburg sewer bill adjustment program. Copies of the program shall be filed with the director of utilities, or his/her designee, and shall be made available to any customer who wishes to see them. (Ord.
