Failure to pay the surcharge and/or correct the situation shall give rise to the possible termination of water service in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Public Service Commission of West Virginia.SURCHARGE TO BE APPLIED TO A CUSTOMER PRODUCING UNUSUAL WASTEThe charge for the treatment of unusual waste will be calculated on the basis of the following formula:Ci = VoVi + BoBi + SoSiCi = charge to unusual users per yearVo = average unit cost of transport and treatment chargeable to volume, indollars per gallonVi = volume of wastewater from unusual users, in gallons per yearBo = average unit cost of treatment, chargeable to Biochemical Oxygen Demand(B0D), in dollars per poundBi = weight of BOD from unusual users, in pounds per yearSo = average unit cost of treatment (including sludge treatment) chargeable tototal solids in dollars per poundSi = weight of total solids from unusual users, in pounds per year When an unusual user is to be served, a preliminary study of its wastes, and the cost of transport and treatment thereof, will be made. Waste containing materials which, in the judgment of the Mason County Public Service District, should not be introduced into the sewer system, need not be handled by it. The results of this preliminary study will be used to determine the feasibility of the proposed sewer service and the charge therefore, based upon the formula set out above. Thereafter, unusual sewage will be monitored on a regular basis and at the conclusion of each fiscal year, based on the investigation aforesaid and audit of the Mason County Public Service District records, new cost figures will be calculated for use in the above formula. The cost of establishing the monitoring facilities shall be paid by the unusual user. Based on these audited figures, additional billings covering the past fiscal year will be made for payment by each unusual user, or refund given by the Mason County Public Service District, as the case may be. Such audited figures will then be used for the preliminary billing for the next fiscal year, at the end of which an adjustment will be made as discussed above. W.Va. Code § 16-13A-9 authorizes the District to petition the Circuit Court to compel connection to the sewer system. In the event a customer does not connect to the system that customer may be charged based upon metered water usage if available, or, if meter data is not available, the average usage of that customer’s class. For residential customers, this charge will be $50.38.
