In cases where the applicant’s request for domestic water service only requires an extension of an existing domestic water pipeline for a distance less than 500 feet, the district may elect to extend its water system to the applicant’s property at the applicant’s expense.
The applicant shall pay the district a deposit equal to the estimated cost of the domestic water pipeline extension, as determined by the district. Said deposit shall be used to compensate the district and/or any contractors and suppliers engaged by the district in the installation of the domestic water pipeline extension. Within 60 days after the cost of the domestic water pipeline extension has been determined, any difference between the cost and the deposit from the applicant shall be adjusted by the parties.
Where two or more applicants apply for service from the same domestic water pipeline extension, the district may allocate the cost proportionately. (Ord. 1399.13 § 8-5, 2019)
