[Ord. No. 2011-05]
Each user shall be invoiced directly for their use of the sewage treatment system.
[Ord. No. 2011-05; Ord. No. 2012-07; Ord. No. 2015-16; Ord. No. 2016-04; Ord. No. 2017-06]
a. 
Users shall pay a set fee per 1,000 gallons of sewage discharged. User classes and the rate for each user class are established for 2017 as follows:
[Amended 3-13-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-05]
From 5.40 to:

$5.54 per 1,000 gallons.
b. 
The Borough Council shall review the rates set by this section on at least an annual basis to determine their adequacy to meet the Borough's proportionate share of the costs of operating, maintaining, and replacing the Borough's sewer system, as well as the fees charged by the Middlesex County Utilities Authority.
c.

[Amended 3-13-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-05]
d. 
Where actual readings of a commercial, industrial, or significant industrial user reveal that the rate set forth in Subsection 28-3.4a is less than the actual fees charged by the MCUA to the Borough for that user's sewage, that user shall pay the actual fee charged by the MCUA to the Borough for that user's sewage, plus an administrative fee of $0.49 per 1,000 gallons, which administrative fee shall be intended to include the costs of operating, maintaining, and replacing the Borough's sewer system.
[Ord. No. 2011-05; Ord. No. 2015-16; Ord. No. 2015-24; Ord. No. 2016-04; Ord. No. 2017-06]
a. 
Wherever actual readings of sewage flow are available, those readings shall be used in determining flow charges. Any user with an estimated sewer user charge of greater than $200,000 per year may be required to install, at its own cost, a separate meter to measure sewage flow and strength of sewage.
b. 
Where actual readings of sewage flows are unavailable, sewage flow will be estimated by taking 100% of the water flow and/or other meter reading for the year. In recognition of the higher water usage during the summer months, which does not enter the Borough's sanitary sewer system (i.e., watering of lawns), the annual flow of a user shall be estimated to be four times the total of that user's water flow bill from the first quarter (January, February, March) of the year prior to the billing year. For example: A user's 2017 usage shall be estimated to be four times that user's water usage in the first quarter of 2018.
[Amended 3-13-2018 by Ord. No. 2018-05]
c. 
If a user obtains its water supply from a private well or an unmetered public water supply or utilizes a process that would yield waste water in amounts greater than the metered water use, then the owner may install a meter, the type and location of which is to be approved by the Borough prior to installation. The Borough shall provide a credit on a subsequent sewer user bill covering the cost of the installed approved meter. In the event that the user opts not to install such a meter within 30 days after receiving notice from the Borough of the option to have a meter installed, then the user shall pay a charge based upon the Borough's estimate of water consumption, which estimate shall be conclusive and binding upon the user.
d. 
Credit for water not discharged into the sanitary sewer may be given to the user by the Borough if the user presents proof satisfactory to the Borough establishing the volume of water not discharged into the sanitary sewer.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
The sewer usage charges established in Subsection 28-3.4 of this Code were based upon estimated levels of biochemical oxygen demand, suspended solids and chlorine demand in the sewage discharged by each class of user. Wherever actual readings of biochemical oxygen demand, suspended solids, and chlorine demand of a user are available, those readings shall be utilized to determine the sewer usage fees for that user in the manner provided in Subsection 28-3.4(d).
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
a. 
Any flows or strengths which are not chargeable to a particular user, whether by reason of the user being exempted from charges or by reason of the flow entering the system by infiltration or inflow shall be charged to all users, proportionately on the basis of flow.
b. 
No roof drainage, cellar drainage, unpolluted industrial process water, surface water, waste from hydrants or groundwater from underground drainage fields, shall be permitted to drain into the sewage system. The sewer system is intended to convey only domestic wastewater and industrial waste.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
Any user objecting to any estimate of flow or strength hereunder shall have the option, at its own expense, of installing metering equipment on its discharge lines to record actual flow and strength readings. The metering equipment used, its installation and the location of installation and method of sampling, shall all be subject to review and approval by the Borough of Bound Brook or its designated representative. The Borough may order the installation of meters and sampling pits if it is determined that these are needed.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
Any user who discharges into the system toxic pollutants, radioactive materials, or materials with high B.O.D. content, which cause an increase in the cost of managing the effluent or the sludge of the treatment works, shall be required to install, at its own expense, metering equipment to record actual flow and strength readings. That user shall be responsible for payment of the actual fees charged to the Borough by the MCUA plus the administrative fee, as provided in Subsection 28-3.4d.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
The user charges established and provided for herein shall be due and payable at a date to be determined within 60 days of billing. Any delinquent payments shall be subject to interest at the rate set by Borough in accordance with N.J.S.A. 54:4-67.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
Notwithstanding any other provisions in this chapter, properties in Bridgewater Township connected to the Bound Brook Sewer System shall be charged in accordance with the provisions of the Sewer Operating Agreement between the Borough of Bound Brook and Bridgewater Township.
[Ord. No. 2011-05]
Public buildings which are defined as those owned by the Borough and used solely for municipal purposes are excluded from the user charges called for in this section. The usage of the public buildings shall be treated as extraneous flow, as defined in Subsection 28-3.7 hereinabove. Buildings used for public education shall not be excluded from the user charges called for in this section.
