B. 
Flow for facilities that have combined uses shall be determined by the summation of all appropriate projected flow values for each use.
C. 
The Boonton Sewer Department recognizes that the table in Subsection A above may not cover all establishments and facilities, and in particular facilities that require an industrial treatment works approval. In the event that a facility is not covered, the applicant shall propose the projected flow based upon operation of similar facilities or best professional judgment. The Department reserves the right to accept, modify or deny the proposed flow values.
D. 
Residential sewer rates.
[Added 4-19-2010 by Ord. No. 4-2010[1]]
(1) 
Per assigned service unit: $78.30.
[Amended 9-20-2010 by Ord. No. 17-2010]
(2) 
Assign sewer service units to existing industrial customers based on fact-based estimates of the facility's metered water consumption, including private wells and other non town utility water sources and the amount of water used in the manufacturing process that does not enter the sewer, which is subtracted from the estimated water consumption. These estimates must be certified by a professional engineer registered in the State of New Jersey. Alternatively, the Town may, at any time and at its sole discretion, set the number of assigned service units to an existing industrial customer at 66.7% of the customer's highest annual water consumption during the last five years.
[1]
Editor’s Note: This ordinance also stated that it, and the revised rates, would be effective and applicable for all water and sewer services rendered after 1-1-2010.
E. 
Commercial/industrial sewer rates.
[Added 4-19-2010 by Ord. No. 4-2010[2]; amended 9-20-2010 by Ord. No. 17-2010]
(1) 
Per assigned service unit: $78.30.
(2) 
Service unit rates are minimum charges regardless of water consumption.
[2]
Editor's Note: This ordinance also stated that it, and the revised rates, would be effective and applicable for all water and sewer services rendered after 1-1-2010.
F. 
Sewer rate for customers using private wells or other water systems. A sewer customer that uses water from sources other than the Town, including private wells or other water systems that is used inside the building, may enter the sewer system, or is interconnected with the water from the Town, must meter, at the owner's expense, each of the nontown water sources in accordance with the Town's requirements with meters specified by or supplied by the Town for a fee. The meters shall be read by the Town for the purpose of charging sewer charges. If the customer uses metered water from another public water utility, the readings of that utility's meter may be used.
