- The above minimum rates apply where the total metered usage divided by the total number of living units and structures is less than 10,000 gallons per quarter. All usage in excess of the aggregate minimum shall be billed based on the total usage.

Commercial or industrial sewer users not under the City or Montgomery County meter control shall have sanitary sewage flow estimated at the ratio of 35 gallons per day per employee. The number of employees shall be updated periodically by the City. Nothing herein stated shall constitute approval to discharge industrial or commercial wastes into the municipal sewer system.
- Total water usage during the third quarter bill shall be discounted by twenty-five percent (25%) of the total meter reading for those periods in determining the sewer charge for that quarter, except as follows:
- If a water user has a separate meter to avoid billing for sewer for water usage not tributary to the sanitary sewer as provided in this section, then the 25% discount shall not apply and such water user’s sewer charge shall be based on all water that is tributary to the sanitary sewer.
- The 25% discount provided for herein shall apply only to residential water users.
Multi-family, commercial, and industrial units not under City meter control may have sanitary sewage flow estimated which will be based on similar multi-family, commercial, or industrial units under City meter control whenever the City determines it would be impossible or impracticable to actually read such meter.
