ARTICLE III

 

SERVICE

 

Section 301.                The City shall provide personnel to operate the system in number and of skill as required by the rules and regulations of the South Carolina State Department of Health and Environmental Control. The City agrees to use reasonable diligence in providing a regular and uninterrupted supply of water service. In case the supply of water shall be interrupted, or fail by accident, or any cause whatsoever, except negligence on the part of the City, the City shall not be liable for any damages sustained by the customer by reason thereof.

 

(A)    WATER METER OWNERSHIP

 

The City of Walhalla shall exclusively own all water meters as a part of its water system. The user of utility service shall pay for the tap to the City of Walhalla Water System to provide such service to connect water to the ultimate user. Customer is liable for ANY damages or tampering to the meter, box, valve, connections, etc. The City is NOT responsible for any portion of a service line beyond the discharge meter coupling.

 

(B)    WATER METER REMOVAL FOR NONPAYMENT OR TAMPERING

 

If an individual, corporation, partnership, or other entity does not pay a bill for utility service prior to the 20th of the month, and service shall be disconnected, and the water meter shall be locked. The lock shall be removed only when the bill is paid, including delinquent charges. If the lock is removed, cut, bypassed and/or tampered with, or the meter is tampered with, the following will occur:

The water meter shall be removed, and service discontinued.  The charge for removal and reinstallation shall be $250.00, plus payment of any delinquent bill.

 

Section 302.                All services will be metered. Where water meters fail to register, bills shall be arrived at by comparison with the same month of the previous year. When at the request of the customer, water meters have been tested by the City or any other party approved by the City and found to be more than 3% fast, previous bills reflecting such inaccuracy will be adjusted accordingly, but in no case will the adjustment exceed three months prior billing. If a meter is tested at the customer’s request more than once in any six-month period, the customer shall pay a service charge of $25.00 for such service but in the event the meter is found to be more than 3% fast, then the customer will have his bill adjusted as stated above and no service charge will be applied. For remote read meters, the reading on the meter register shall be the reading used for billing purposes in the event of a transmitter failure.

 

Section 303.                 The City shall have the right to enter the Customer’s premises without notice for the purpose of making emergency repairs, disconnection or reconnection of service, necessary installations, or reading of meters. The City shall further have the right to enter the Customer’s premises for inspection and any other reason for administering reasonable service provided that the customer is notified in advance.

 

Section 304.                All water connections installed for sprinkler systems or similar business or commercial fire protection devices must be equipped with at least a testable double check valve or a reduced pressure backflow preventer on the customer’s side of the line, at the customer’s expense. These must be certified once per year by a certified backflow tester at the customer’s expense, and all tests must be submitted in the iBackflow system. Testing notices will be sent by iBackflow several weeks before the test is due. If a customer fails to have the device tested, the City will have the device tested by a contract tester, and bill the customer $75 on their water bill.

 

Section 305.                The City will allow each customer two free convenience cutoffs and cut-ons each year; thereafter, a fee of $25.00 will be billed for this service. Convenience cut-offs, as a protective device during periods of absence from the premises, do not relieve the customer of any obligation to pay the minimum charges as set forth in the rate schedule of Article VI.

 

Section 306.                All building plumbing shall conform to the National Plumbing Code, latest revision, and shall be accomplished only by a regular, licensed plumber authorized by the City. It shall become the responsibility of each person requesting a water connection to notify the City and arrange for final inspection of the plumbing while visible and accessible to the inspecting agent of the City before permission to connect is granted.
