Sec. 39-64. Special water sales.
(a) Hydrant rental and meter deposit. The sale of water through temporary connections to fire hydrants shall be permitted by the city for short periods of time [less than thirty (30) days] if it is deemed practical by the director of public works or his designee. The purpose of these sales shall be for use of contractors requiring large amounts of water for short periods of time and customers for filling swimming pools. Connections shall be made by the city through an auxiliary valve and portable meter. In no case shall private citizens or contractors operate city fire hydrants for this purpose.
Customers desiring said service shall apply to the utility customer services office at least five (5) working days prior to the need for this service and service shall be provided on basis of availability of auxiliary valves and portable meters.
A deposit of one hundred dollars ($100.00) will be required at the time of application and will be refunded to the customer upon final settlement of charges for use of the temporary service; provided, that the auxiliary valve and portable meter are not damaged during service.
Charge for said service shall be thirty dollars ($30.00) per day of use of the auxiliary valve and portable meter starting from the date installed and extending through date of requested removal. In addition, the water usage shall be metered and paid for at the regular city rates as described in Section 39-54(a) with a minimum charge of thirty dollars ($30.00) per day for the period of usage.
(b) Tank load of water. Customers desiring water by the tank load can obtain water coupons at the city collector's office. The charge for each coupon shall be twenty-five dollars ($25.00). The water coupons can be redeemed for water at the city's College Hill Filtration Plant located at 6th & Taylor Streets by contacting the water plant operator on duty at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance and arranging for filling of tanks at the College Hill Plant. Each coupon can be redeemed for one thousand (1,000) gallons of water, or a fraction thereof, and shall be based on the size of the tank provided by the customer. (Ord.
