System Charge – This applies to customers who set service prior to adoption of
New Water Rates on March 4, 2013. 

Commercial customers (using a 1" or larger water service) shall be charged a system charge in an amount equal to 50% of each monthly billing for each service for a period of 72 consecutive months. Non-commercial and all other customers (except schools) shall be charged an amount equal to 25% of the monthly minimum rates for their class of services for a period of 72 consecutive months.  

Said monthly billing and minimum rates for the purpose of computing "Systems Charge" shall be determined by the rates established herein. The appropriate rate used at the beginning of a 72 month period shall not be altered during such period. In lieu of monthly payments as aforesaid, the commercial customer shall be permitted to pay a lump sum amount equal to 5/6 of the total estimated time payments, which shall be construed as a commuted present value of the commercial customer's System Charge projected over six (6) years, at the applicable percentage, upon Company's estimate of the commercial customer's future usage. The commuted payment shall be recalculated after the commercial customer has completed twelve (12) full months of usage and a refund or supplemental payment shall be made to adjust the estimated commuted payment. Non-commercial and all other customers shall have the same privilege of commuting their System Charge, but the same will be based on the flat rates for their class of service and thus no adjustments will be required.
