North Carolina General Statute g allows OWASA to take advantage of formal procurement efforts conducted by another governmental entity if the seller agrees to extend the same or better prices and terms set forth in a contract awarded within the past twelve months that resulted from formal competitive bidding procedures.
This is commonly referred to as piggybacking. The City of Durham recently solicited competitive bids for sodium hydroxide through the statutorily required formal bidding process. Univar USA, Inc. Informal inquiries indicate this is an excellent price in a rising market. June 13,. OWASA last accepted formal bids for sodium hydroxide in April The contract arising from that activity has expired and the current provider has indicated their price will increase significantly. In lieu of the generally required formal process, North Carolina General Statute g allows OWASA to piggyback on formal procurement efforts conducted by another governmental entity if the seller agrees to extend the same or better prices and terms set forth in a contract awarded within the past twelve months that resulted from formal competitive bidding procedures.

If that is the Board s determination, it should adopt a revised policy, and then a motion to grant the relief requested in the petition.
If the revised policy is adopted, any and all other customers having mistakenly paid for services not received would be due a refund of all sums mistakenly paid. John Young suggested that if the Board decided to revise the policy, it should include a time frame of not more than 15 years.

As a community-owned non-profit public utility, OWASA has no authority to levy taxes, nor does it receive tax revenues from local governments for ongoing operations. OWASA finances its water, sewer and reclaimed water operations and extensive capital improvements almost entirely through customer paid fees and charges.
North Carolina G. OWASA's rates are established under cost-of-service rate-making methodology. Revenues generated by these rate adjustments will provide OWASA with the financial resources necessary to: 1 fund operating costs; 2 adequately maintain existing water, sewer, and reclaimed water facilities; 3 fully comply with increasingly stringent environmental and public health standards; 4 meet debt service requirements; 5 create additional facility capacity to stay abreast of water, reclaimed water and sewer service demand in a growing, dynamic community; and 6 maintain adequate reserves.
The attached Schedule of Rates, Fees, and Charges will replace the schedule adopted on June 14, , which became effective on October 1,. Charges are due upon receipt of the bill, and become delinquent 21 days after the billing date. Monthly water rates consist of two components; a monthly service charge and a commodity volume charge.
Water Service Charge This charge recovers costs related to certain direct and indirect customer service efforts, meter and lateral maintenance, and capital costs associated with supplying water to the customer s property.
This charge is calculated to recover certain direct and indirect customer service, meter and lateral maintenance, and capital costs associated with supplying water for irrigation through irrigation-only meters.
Applicable to all metered irrigation water accounts, regardless of the quantity of water consumed, the monthly charge is based on meter size as follows: No changes proposed Meter Size Monthly Service Charge 2 4. In addition to the applicable charge for the primary meter, existing OWASA-owned sub-meters are billed according to the above schedule.
OWASA-owned submeters are no longer available and no additional sub-meters will be installed. Meter readings and service charges for first and final bills are prorated based on days of service. Water Commodity Charge This charge recovers the direct and indirect costs of water supply and treatment, water distribution, general administration and capital costs not recovered by the monthly service charge. This charge is applicable to all water accounts based on meter readings of water consumed.
When a billing period includes a change in commodity rates, the charges are prorated based on the ratio of days in the billing period at the old and new rates. Metered monthly consumption will be billed in thousand gallon increments rounded down to the nearest thousand gallons. Unbilled consumption due to rounding will be carried forward and billed in the month when the next thousand gallon increment is registered by the meter. When no meter reading is available due to an inoperative, damaged or inaccessible meter, consumption will be estimated based on prior usage at the location.
Individually Metered Residential Accounts Except Irrigation-Only Accounts Individually metered residential accounts will be billed under an increasing block rate structure designed to encourage efficient water use by applying increasing commodity charges rate per thousand gallons to incremental increases in water use. These applicable surcharges are summarized in the following table. Block 1 Res. Block 2 Res. Block 3 Res. Block 4 Res. Block 5 Use Level: gallons Stage 1 1, to 2, No surcharge 3, to 5, No surcharge 6, to 10, times normal Block 3 rate 11, to 15, times normal Block 4 rate 16, and up 2 times normal Block 5 rate Non-Residential and Irrigation-Only 1.
Stage 2 No surcharge 1. Stage 3 and Emergency No surcharge 1. Non-residential Accounts Except Irrigation-Only Accounts To achieve demand reduction during peak water use periods, a seasonal conservation rate structure will be applied to all non-residential accounts other than irrigation-only accounts.
A reduced water commodity charge is in effect during lower demand months October through April , and a higher commodity charge is in effect during high demand months May through September. The specific rates to be charged will be negotiated with the other party based upon specific conditions using the cost-of-service rate-making approach and approved by OWASA.
A customer may submit a written request to use the hydrant meter for one additional 60 day period but granting said request will be subject to availability and is at OWASA s sole discretion. Service from a fire hydrant is subject to interruption when the hydrant is needed for fire protection, compliance with water conservation standards, and other applicable law. For situations where temporary water service is needed for a period longer than days, the user can purchase a metering device of a size, make and model specified by OWASA.
When the hydrant meter is returned, the security deposit shall be applied to the final bill plus any damages. Any credit balance will be refunded within thirty 30 days. The availability fee is applicable to each new connection to a water main, regardless of who may have paid for the installation of the water main to which the 5 4.
For the purpose of availability fees, customer accounts are divided into three categories: 1 Single-family Residential, 2 Multi-family Residential, Individuallymetered; and 3 Non-residential.
The Non-residential category includes master-metered multifamily customers and all commercial, University, and other institutional accounts.

Water and Land Use are deeply connected resource-wise, but in many communities water and land use are not often planned together. When a community develops its master plan and zoning ordinances, available water supply and sustainable water use should be major considerations. The local water supplier should be deeply involved in advising on community growth planning. Another issue in water and land use planning is focusing on water resources in the water supply watershed. Water efficiency can help with environmental flows and watershed restoration. The Alliance for Water Efficiency has done seminal work in this area for the Colorado River Basin, focusing on how water efficiency can be used to help augment in-stream flows. Net Blue, a new initiative aiming to offer a practical path to sustainable community development.

Land application of municipal wastewater biosolids is the most common method of biosolids management used in North Carolina and the United States. Biosolids have characteristics that may be beneficial to soil and plants. Land application can take advantage of these beneficial qualities, whereas disposal in landfills or incineration poses no beneficial use of the waste. Some independent studies and laboratory analysis, however, have shown that land-applied biosolids can pose a threat to human health and surface-water and groundwater quality.

Description Reviews 0 This paper describes the development of a tiered system of water and sewerservice availability fees based on the finished area of single family homes. Customers with more modest homes generally use lesstotal water and exert a lower summer demand than those with larger homes. OWASA'sservice availability fees--utility capital recovery charges or impact fees assessed to new development --were traditionally based on meter capacity factors,and all single family homes were charged the same one-time fee when connecting tothe water or sewer system, regardless of home size or expected water usepatterns.
All firms submitting qualifications must have demonstrated experience and expertise in design and construction services for electrical systems and finished water pumping systems. Finished water is pumped out of the clearwell by finished water pumps 4, 5, or 6 or exits through the inch effluent piping that feeds finished water pump 7. Finished water pumps 4, 5, and 6 are vertical turbine pumps located at the finished water clearwell.
