Special Conditions - Ferndale Annual General Metered Service
  1. The annual service charge applies to service during the 12 month period commencing January 1 and is due in advance. If a permanent resident of the area has been a customer of the utility for at least 12 months, the resident may elect, at the beginning of the calendar year, to pay prorated service charges in advance at intervals of less than one year in accordance with the utility's established billing periods for water used.
     
  2. The established billing cycle for water used is monthly. The billing cycle may be longer at intervals during the winter season.
     
  3. The opening bill for meter service, except upon conversion from flat rate service, shall be established after the first day of any year, the portion of such annual charge applicable to the current year shall be determined by multiplying the annual charge by one three-hundred-sixty-fifth (1/365) of the number of days remaining in the calendar year. The balance of the payment of the initial annual charge shall be credited against the charges for the succeeding annual period. If service is not continued for at least one year after the date of initial service, no refund of the initial annual charges shall be due the customers.
     
  4. All bills are subject to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Reimbursement Fee set forth in Schedule No. UF.

As a part of the sprinkler service installation, there shall be a detector check or other similar device acceptable to the company which will indicate the use of water.

  5. There shall be no-cross connection between the fire sprinkler system supplied by water through the company's fire sprinkler service to any other source of supply without the specific approval of the company.
