appropriate.
TAP FEE

A tap fee of $300.00 will be charged to all customers who apply for service outside of a certificate proceeding before the Commission for each new tap to the system.
DISCONNECT/RECONNECT/ADMINISTRATIVE FEES
Whenever water service has been previously disconnected for non-payment of sewer bills in conjunction with a water service termination agreement with Greater Harrison County PSD, a disconnection fee of $25.00 shall be charged; or in the event the delinquent sewer bill is collected by the water company, an
administrative fee of $25.00 shall be charged.

maximum of $25.00 will be imposed upon any customer whose check for payment of charges is returned by their bank due to insufficient funds.
LEAK ADJUSTMENT
$3.68 per 1,000 gallons of water is to be used when the bill reflects unusual consumption which can be attributed to eligible leakage on the customer's side of the meter. This rate shall be applied to all such unusual consumption above the customer's historical average usage.
MUNICIPAL EXCISE TAX SURCHARGE
The municipality listed below, having imposed a public utility tax computed on the basis of two percent of the revenues from sewer sales by the Jane Lew Public Service District sewer utility within the corporate limits of such municipality, said tax shall be billed as a "surcharge" to the customers receiving service within said corporate limits.
The sewer utility is required to collect the utility tax pursuant to West Virginia Code §8-13-5a.
Customers receiving water service within the corporate limits of the specified municipality shall pay a surcharge based on the following rates:
Town of Jane Lew 2%

SCHEDULE II
SURCHARGE FORMULA TO BE APPLIED IN CASES WHERE SURFACE DRAINAGE IS CONNECTED TO THE DISTRICT'S SANITARY SYSTEM
APPLICABILITY
Whenever the District has discovered that a customer's roof drain, downspout, storm sewer or similar facility conducting surface water has been connected to the District's sewer system and such a customer has failed to take appropriate action within thirty (30) days of receipt of a demand by the District in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the Public Service Commission to eliminate such connection, a surcharge will be imposed upon the customer calculated on the basis of the following formula:
S=AxRx.0006233 xC
S = the surcharge in dollars
A = the area under roof and/or the area of any other water
collecting
R = the measured monthly rainfall, in inches surface connected to the
sanitary sewer, in square feet
.000623 = a conversion factor to change inches of rain x square feet
of surface to thousand of gallons of water
C = the District's approved rate per thousand gallons of metered water

The District shall not impose the surcharge unless and until the customer has been notified by certified mail, return receipt requested, or by hand delivery, that it has been established by smoke testing, dye testing, or on-site inspection that rain or surface water is being introduced into the sanitary sewer system at the customer's location, and that the customer has not acted within thirty days from receipt of such notice to divert the water from the sanitary sewer system.
Said surcharge shall be calculated and imposed for each month that said condition continues to exist. Failure to pay the surcharge and/or correct the situation shall give rise to the possible termination of water service in accordance with the Rules and Regulations of the Public Service Commission of West Virginia
W.Va. Code § 16-13A-9 authorizes the District to petition the Circuit Court to compel connection to the sewer system. In the event a customer does not connect to the system that customer will be charged based upon metered water usage if available, or, if meter data is not available, the average usage of that customer's class. For residential customers, this charge will be $45.05. District personnel may be reached at (304) 884-7111 or at the District's office, 68 Park Avenue, Jane Lew, West Virginia 26378.
