C. Establish a schedule of ERU’s which sets the buy-in and new capacity connection charges on the basis of total strength and volume of wastewater generated;

D. Assign the responsibility for installation of approved new customer hookups to the customer, and provide for city inspection and approval of the work, along with accompanying administrative fee;

E. Establish modified charges and rates for low income housing facilities;
