A BILL FOR AN ACT to amend the Indiana Code concerning
against a board concerning sewage service billed at a flat rate. If a
campground is billed for sewage service at a flat rate under subsection
(a), the campground may instead elect to be billed for the sewage
service under this subsection by installing, at the campground's
expense, a meter to measure the actual amount of sewage discharged
by the campground into the sewers for one (1) year. For a calendar
year beginning after December 31, 2004, the highest monthly meter
for a calendar week for the campground during the year shall
be used to determine the resident equivalent units for the campground.
The basic monthly charge for the campground's sewage service must
be equal to the number of the campground's resident equivalent units
multiplied by the rate charged by the board for a resident unit. The
board may impose additional charges on a campground under this
subsection if the board incurs additional costs that are caused by any
unique factors that apply to providing sewage service for the
campground, including, but not limited to:
(1) the installation of:
(A) oversized pipe; or
(B) any other unique equipment;
necessary to provide sewage service for the campground; and
(2) excessive biochemical oxygen demand (BOD).
