The utility authority reserves the right to terminate a customer’s service when the customer has repeatedly, unduly wasted resources. For example, with regards to water, such undue waste is evidenced by the fact that hydrants, taps, hoses and other fixtures are permitted to run continuously when not in productive use. Where such conditions have been observed, the utility authority having been notified of the conditions may terminate a service to the premises if the condition is not corrected within 48 hours after receipt of the notice. The utility authority reserves the right to turn off the service immediately to preserve a resource. Service shall be resumed only after correction of the condition causing wastage and payment by the customer of the approved reconnection fee, penalties and any other accounts in arrears to the utility authority.
