[R.O. 2012 § 705.045; Ord. No. 359, 3-23-2012; Ord. No. 363, 5-15-2012]
City of Kimberling City warrants that all property owners within the City limits of Kimberling City shall, subject to the provisions of this Section and other applicable ordinances of the City, be entitled to have access to the City Sanitary Sewer, provided the customer, applicant or property owner shall pay the actual cost of extension of any sewer main to the property being served, if necessary, and the actual cost of the grinder pump and associated electrical components as well as the connection into the sewer system.
Before the extension of any sewer main in the City of Kimberling City shall be made by any person, corporation, partnership or other entity, other than a City employee, application for such extension shall be made to the City Clerk.
When extending a sewer line to a single user where there is an existing main of adequate size in a street or roadway adjacent to the property or where an extension is necessary to serve a single user, the following rules and policies shall apply:
Upon proper written application, the City's Director of Public Works will make an estimate of the cost of the proposed extension, which shall include all labor, consulting engineering costs, materials, equipment rentals required, including fittings, values, value boxes, right-of-way costs, if any, and reconstruction of existing sewer mains to which the proposed extension will be connected and shall include an additional ten percent (10%) for use of small tools, appliances, transportation, storeroom and incidental expense.
The estimate in Subsection (C)(1) shall be for extending from the existing main to a point directly to the location of connection, whether being for a grinder pump or gravity connection for said property. If the existing main is not on the same side of the street as the connection location for such property, the estimated cost shall include the cost of boring under or digging through the street to install the service connection line.
The applicant shall pay to the City an amount equal to the estimated cost. Construction shall not commence until such sum has been paid. The sum so advanced by the applicant shall be adjusted to the actual cost of the work and as soon as the work is completed, the excess of the payment, if any, shall be returned to the applicant or, if actual costs exceed the estimate, the applicant will be required to pay the additional sum to the City. The additional sum and all costs of extension shall be paid before service is commenced.
When extending sewer mains into a territory or area which is unoccupied and not developed or where there are no sewer mains in the streets, roadways or rights-of-way (excluding subdivisions which fall within subdivision regulations) and the City's Director of Public Works finds that additional connections will most likely be made between the existing main and the end of the extension, the rules and policies set forth in Subsection (C) and this Subsection (D) shall apply.
Future applicants to connect to said extended line shall pay a fee to the City based upon a formula representing a reasonable pro rata charge based upon other available and prospective users of the extended line.
All sums of money collected by the City as provided by Subsection (D)(1) shall be credited to a fund designated as the "Sewer Pro Rata Fund." Money credited to the Sewer Pro Rata Fund may, at the direction of the Board of Aldermen, be used to pay all or part of the cost of the extension to the original applicant paying for such extension. All refunds hereinafter provided shall be paid from the Sewer Pro Rata Fund.
Through the completion of any extension as provided in this Subsection (D) and after the original applicant has commenced receiving service; all additional connections to applicant's sewer main extension shall be made to pay the pro rata charge as originally established to ensure payment of a refund to the original applicant not to exceed the applicant's cost of said extension. Funds remaining after the original applicant has been paid, as herein provided, shall become the property of the City.
For any extension under either Subsection (C) or (D) the following general rules and policies shall apply:
The deposits or payment of cost made by applicants as provided hereunder do not relieve any applicant from the payment of the regular service connection or tap fee as may be provided by any other ordinance in effect at the time the application is made.
The City reserves the right to further extend the main and to make connecting mains on intersecting streets or easements, and such further extensions or connections shall not entitle the original applicant to any refund by reason thereof or when other customers attach thereto as provided in Subsection (D)(3).
No interest shall be paid on any deposit made under the provisions of this Section.
Minimum pipe size for gravity sewer mains shall be eight (8) inches in diameter and a minimum of two (2) inches in diameter for pressure mains. Service connections shall be sized based on the current building codes as set forth in other ordinances. Should the City desire to install a smaller or larger pipe connection, a cost adjustment shall be established and a refund, if applicable, provided to the applicant.
An applicant shall, when requested by the City, furnish a complete plan of the proposed development, tract or lot to be served, including the location of the requested extension and a profile of the grades on roads/streets of approved easements. In the case of new developments, the City may require the developer to bring the grades of the proposed streets reasonably close to the final grade to be established before construction of the sewer main extension is commenced.
The location of all extensions shall be in established streets, alleys or approved easements with the actual location of the extension under the control of the City. Rights-of-way or easements shall be provided without cost to the City or, if payment is required, it shall be included in the cost of the extension. Rights-of-way or easements shall be granted in favor of the City.
Extensions made under the policy established by this Section shall be and remain the property of the City in consideration of its perpetual upkeep and maintenance.
Responsibility of advising the City of the proper recipient of the refunds provided herein shall rest with the applicant.
The City may, at its election, perform work provided hereunder or may allow such to be performed under contract. If the City performs the work, a complete list of all materials used, their cost and all labor cost shall be furnished to the applicant.
The City reserves the right to refuse the extension of any main if, in the judgment of the Board of Aldermen, the cost or investment would be prohibitive or the extension of the main as requested is determined to be detrimental to the City sewer system, or the present water customers.
Whenever, in the judgment of the Board of Aldermen of the City of Kimberling City, Missouri, it is found and determined to be in the best interest of the sewer system of the City of Kimberling City, Missouri, for the City to make a sewer main extension at the cost of the City and not under the policies herein provided by this Section, or where said Board determines that to follow the provisions of this Section would be an unreasonable burden on the property owners because of the length of the extension involved, said Board may waive the provisions of this Section and proceed in such other manner as the Board determines.
[R.O. 2012 § 705.050; Ord. No. 287, 4-20-2004; Ord. No. 340, 10-6-2009]

Excessive discoloration (such as, but not limited to, dye wastes and vegetable tanning solutions).
Unusual BOD, chemical oxygen demand, or chlorine requirements in such quantities as to constitute a significant load on the sewage treatment works.
Unusual volume of flow or concentration of wastes constituting "slugs" as defined herein.
Waters or wastes containing substances which are not amenable to treatment or reduction by the sewage treatment processes employed or are amenable to treatment only to such degree that the sewage treatment plant effluent cannot meet the requirements of other agencies having jurisdiction over discharge to the receiving waters.
Any waters or wastes having:
A five (5) day BOD greater than three hundred (300) parts per million by weight, or
Containing more than three hundred fifty (350) parts per million by weight or suspended solids, or
Having an average daily flow greater than two percent (2%) of the average sewage flow of the City of Kimberling City. The owner shall provide, at his/her expense, such preliminary treatment as may be necessary to:
Reduce the biochemical oxygen demand to three hundred (300) parts per million by weight, or
Reduce the suspended solids to three hundred fifty (350) parts per million by weight, or
Control the quantities and rates of discharge of such waters or wastes. Plans, specifications and any other pertinent information relating to proposed preliminary treatment facilities shall be submitted for the approval of the City and no construction of such facilities shall be commenced until said approvals are obtained in writing.
If any waters or wastes are discharged or are proposed to be discharged to the public sewers, which waters contain the substances or possess the characteristics enumerated in Subsection (D) of this Section, and which may have a deleterious effect upon the sewage works, processes, equipment or receiving waters, or which otherwise create a hazard to life to constitute a public nuisance, the City may:
Reject the wastes,
Require pretreatment to an acceptable condition for discharge to the public sewers,
Require control over the quantities and rates of discharge, and
Require payment to cover the added cost of handling and treating the wastes not covered by existing taxes or sewer charges under the provisions of Subsection (J) of this Section.
If the City permits the pretreatment or equalization of waste flows, the design and installation of the plants and equipment shall be subject to the review and approval of the City and subject to the requirements of all applicable codes, ordinances and laws.
Grease, oil and sand interceptors shall be provided when they are necessary for the proper handling of liquid wastes containing grease in excessive amount or any flammable wastes, sand or other ingredients; except that such interceptors shall not be required for private living quarters or dwelling units. All interceptors shall be of a type and capacity approved by the City and shall be located as to be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection.
Where preliminary treatment or flow-equalizing facilities are provided for any waters or wastes, they shall be maintained continuously in satisfactory and effective operation by the owner at his/her expense.
The owner of any property serviced by a building sewer carrying industrial wastes shall install a suitable control manhole together with such necessary meters and other appurtenances in the building sewer to facilitate observation, sampling and measurement of the wastes. Such manhole, when required, shall be accessible and safely located and shall be constructed in accordance with plans approved by the City. The manhole shall be installed by the owner at his/her expense and shall be maintained by him/her so as to be safe and accessible at all times.
All measurements, tests and analyses of the characteristics of waters and wastes to which reference is made in this Chapter shall be determined in accordance with the latest edition of "Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater" published by the American Public Health Association and shall be determined at the control manhole provided or upon suitable samples taken at said control manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been required, the control manhole shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected. Sampling shall be carried out by customarily accepted methods to reflect the effect of constituents upon the sewage works and to determine the existence of hazards to life, limb and property. (The particular analyses involved will determine whether a twenty-four-hour composite of all outfalls of a premise is appropriate or whether a grab sample or samples should be taken. Normally, but not always, BOD and suspended solids analyses are obtained from twenty-four-hour composites of all outfalls whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples.)
No statement contained in this Section shall be construed as preventing any special agreement or arrangement between the City of Kimberling City and/or any industrial concern whereby an industrial waste of unusual strength or character may be accepted by the City of Kimberling City for treatment, subject to payment therefore by the industrial concern.
