6. Sewer Charge Variance for Nonresidential Accounts.
a. Temporary Single Meter Variance. Separate meters are recommended for indoor and outdoor water use, so that only the indoor water use is calculated for the sewer rate. This temporary single meter variance is being offered to customers with an existing single meter serving both indoor and outdoor water needs in order to provide customers time to install a second meter to separate the water uses. The temporary single meter variance will be in effect until a new second meter is installed or until December 31, 2018, whichever occurs first. Customers may request this variance by completing a “Temporary Single Meter Variance Application” located on CVWD’s website at cvwd.org.
b. Calculation of Wastewater Discharge Variance. For sewer only customers, CVWD is estimating the average three-year water use based on like businesses within CVWD’s service area. This request for variance is being offered to CVWD sewer only customers so that they may provide their actual average domestic water use over the prior three years as the basis for determining the estimated amount of wastewater discharge. This request for variance will be in effect as long as the actual water consumption data for the prior three years is provided annually by the customer. Customers may request this variance by completing a “Request for Variance – Calculation of Wastewater Discharge Application” located on CVWD’s website at cvwd.org.
c. Process Water. Nonresidential customers who meet the criteria for process water may request a variance on their sewer charges by completing a “Request for Process Water Allowance Application” located on CVWD’s website at cvwd.org. (Ord. 1427.1, 2017; Ord. 1427 § 2 (Exh. A 5-4), 2016.)
