the deposit, the remaining balance will be refunded to the customer.

If the water usage exceeds the amount of the deposit, the customer will

be responsible for payment.

Pools:

Draining a swimming pool will require a permit from the District.  The cost of shall be calculated by the following calculation:     X= known volume of the pool in gallons

X/7.48 = Y (volume of pool in cubic feet)

Y/1000 = Z (volume of pool in thousand cubic feet)

Subtract the 1 (first thousand cubic feet) from Z (Z - 1000) and assign to

it a value of $19.87.  Multiply the remaining thousand cubic feet by 6.96.

Add the two values together and the resulting number is the cost of the

permit fee in dollars.

If the volume of the pool is unknown then the cost of the permit shall be $36.00 (roughly the cost of a 25,000 gallon pool).  Customers will only be allowed to drain their pools with a permit once every three years.

If customers are found draining their pool with having a permit, a warning will be issued and a fine will be assessed which will be the cost of the permit required for their size pool.  If customers are found draining their pool within three years of obtaining a permit a fine of $150.00 shall be assessed.
