C.    All owners of property within the incorporated limits of the city, whose properties are capable of being served by the municipal sewer system, are required to connect their properties and their private septic systems to the city sewer system. Determination of whether the property is capable of being served by the city sewer system shall be made by the wastewater treatment plant operator, and such determinations may be appealed to the city council. Connection to the city sewer system may be by gravity or by pumping.

D.    Where the city determines that a property is incapable of being served by the city sewer system, a private sewage disposal system shall be constructed. The type, capacity, location, and layout of a private sewage system shall comply with all recommendations and regulations of the Okanogan County health department and the State of Washington Department of Health. No septic tank or cesspool shall be permitted to discharge to any public sewer, natural outlet, or to ground surface. The owner shall operate and maintain the private sewage disposal facilities in a sanitary manner at all times at no expense to the city.

E.    Whenever a public sewer becomes available to a lot or parcel served by a private sewage disposal system, and such lot or parcel is capable of being served by such public sewer, as provided in subsection C of this section, a direct connection shall be made to the public sewer within ninety (90) days, weather permitting. Installation shall be in compliance with this chapter. Septic tanks, cesspools, or similar private sewage disposal facilities shall be removed, or shall be abandoned and filled with suitable material in a manner approved by the wastewater operator.

F.    Side sewers shall be owned by the owner of the property served. However, any meter, remote readout, meter pit, vaults, covers, and meter risers shall be maintained, repaired and tested by the city for all active service connections.

(Ord. 544 Art. 2, 1996)

13.08.030 Sewer permit required.

C.    The application shall be submitted to the wastewater operator, who shall give his or her approval to the application if it is acceptable. If the design of the side sewer is not acceptable, the wastewater operator may deny the permit, or may request specific changes which would make the permit acceptable. Review by the wastewater operator shall be complete within twenty (20) days of the complete application. If the applicant wishes to change the design of the side sewer to comply with the requests of the wastewater operator, this shall constitute a request for an extension of the time for review.

D.    After review and approval by the wastewater operator, the clerk shall, upon receipt of all fees and charges due, sign the application and issue the permit. Upon approval of the application and issuance of the permit, it shall be unlawful to alter the permit or to perform any work other than is provided for and as described in the permit. Changes to the terms of the permit may only be made with the agreement of the wastewater operator. If the wastewater operator deems that additional work of sufficient consequence is required, a new permit may be required to cover the same.

E.    It is unlawful for any person to connect to, alter, tamper with, or extend any public sewer, except in accordance with the conditions of a permit.

H.    After a side sewer permit is granted, the applicant shall have ninety (90) days to complete connection to the city system. A single ninety (90) day extension may be granted by the wastewater treatment plant operator. If connection to the city system is not made within this time period, the wastewater treatment plant operator is authorized and directed to cause the connection to be made and file a statement thereof with the clerk. Thereupon a warrant shall be issued under the direction of the city council for the payment of such costs.

Such amount shall be assessed against the property upon which side sewer connection has been made, either as an addition to the monthly sewer charge or as a lien upon the property. (Ord. 544 Art. 3, 1996)

        The charge for the physical installation of any part of a side sewer within any public area by city utility personnel shall be the actual cost of the labor, machine time, and materials, including for inspections. This charge shall be due upon completion of the work and paid prior to use of the side sewer.

        An inspection fee shall also be charged whenever any work for which a permit is required by this chapter has been commenced without first obtaining a permit. Such fee shall cover all city costs involved in determining whether the work meets the requirements of this chapter. This fee must be paid prior to the issuance of a permit for such work, and shall be collected whether or not a permit is then or subsequently issued. The payment of such investigation fee shall not exempt any person from compliance with all other provisions of this chapter nor from any penalty prescribed by law.

C.    Prior to the first use of any side sewer, there shall be charged a one time system development fee. This fee shall be in addition to the cost of installation referenced in subsection B of this section. The amount of this fee shall be set by resolution of the city council. Any such fees collected shall be deposited to the sewer capital improvement fund for use in capital improvements to the sewer system.

D.    A service line shall be presumed to be abandoned by the owner when service charges have been unpaid for a period of one year. Upon abandonment pursuant to this section, city service may be resumed only upon payment of a hookup fee. The amount of this fee shall be set by resolution of the city council.

        If a hook-up fee has been paid to the city for a property, prior to the passage of the ordinance codified in this chapter, and such property has not been paying monthly sewer user charges, the property owner shall pay the monthly sewer user charges from the month of passage of the ordinance codified in this chapter forward at the rate determined for a single-family residence, or the service shall be deemed abandoned. The city shall give public notice of this requirement in the same manner and for the same time period as that required for passage of a city ordinance.

        If a structure served by a city system is torn down or destroyed, the owner may either voluntarily abandon the service line or prevent abandonment by paying the monthly service charges to the city in an amount equal the charges prior to the building’s destruction.

        Any property owner may voluntarily abandon their service line by written notice of their intention to do so to the city. Such service line shall be deemed abandoned upon receipt of said notice, and upon physical disconnection of the line if required by the wastewater operator.

        If a service line is abandoned pursuant to this section, service charges to the property or building shall cease to accrue upon the effective date of the abandonment, however abandonment pursuant to this section shall not relieve the owner of their obligation to pay the sewer utility balance due, prior to the date of abandonment.

E.    Sewer user charges shall be due starting six months from the date of issue of the first side sewer permit to the owner, the first month the side sewer receives any flow, or the month in which an occupancy permit is issued, whichever occurs first, and shall be payable for the whole month at a rate determined by the city rate ordinance or contract rate if applicable.

F.    No permit shall be issued pursuant to this chapter until all latecomer charges, as might be required to be paid under contract with the city, have been paid.

G.    Except as otherwise provided herein, all sewer user charges, sewer user assessments, sewer user fees or other charges, assessments, and fees associated with the connection or use of any public sewer within the city shall be set by resolution of the city council, including such periodic time frame specified for billing, and may increase or decrease such rates, charges, fees or assessments from time to time by resolution of the city council.

(Ord. 98-571 § 3(K), 1998; Ord. 544 Art. 4, 1996)

13.08.045 Rate adjustments according to Consumer Price Index.

A.    Beginning January 1, 2001, where no specific action has been taken to adjust water or sewer utility service rates, such rates or fees shall be determined in proportion to any increase shown in the Consumer Price Index, All Urban for the Seattle-Tacoma Area, All Items, as published by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. In applying this provision, the adjustment made shall be determined by comparing such CPI information available as of September 1, 2000, for the first half of 2000, for the same information for the first half of 1999. Any percentage increase derived from such comparison shall be applied and take effect January 1, 2001. A like comparison, and any increase applied, shall be made in September of 2001 to take effect January 1, 2002, with this process continuing thereafter unless otherwise changed.
