The amount representing all debt service, including but not limited to sinking funds, reserved funds, the principal and interest on bonds and the amount of any loans and the interest thereon, paid by the Township to defray the capital cost of developing the system as of the end of the immediately preceding budget year shall be added to all capital expenditures made by the Township not funded by a bond ordinance or debt for the development of the system as of the end of the immediately preceding budget year.

(3) 
The remainder shall be divided by the total number of service units served by the Township at the end of the immediately preceding budget year, and the results shall then be apportioned to each new connector according to the number of service units attributed to that connector. In attributing service units to each connector, the estimated average daily flow of sewage for the connector shall be divided by the average daily flow of sewage to the average single-family residence of three or more bedrooms in the area served by the Township to produce the number or service units to be attributed.
D.
