The following ordinances, adopted by the Board of Water Commissioners of the South Huntington Water District, South Huntington, New York (the "District"), form part of the water service contract by and between the District and each purchaser of water, services, or facilities provided by the District.

 

SECTION 1.            APPLICATION FOR WATER CONNECTIONS.

A.            Application for water service or for connection to District facilities shall be made in writing at the office of the District on forms provided by the District.  Such applications shall be made by the owner of the property concerned or the property owner's authorized agent.  Evidence of ownership and identification of the property shall be submitted with the application.  Every owner of land, or his agent who files an application for water service or for connection to District facilities shall be deemed to have granted to the South Huntington Water District a continuing license for the employees, representatives or officials of the District to enter upon the lands of said owner for purposes of making routine inspections of water service and/or water connections, making appropriate emergency repairs thereto, ensuring that the water service and connections are installed and maintained in accordance with the specifications of the District, and otherwise ensuring compliance with the ordinances of the South Huntington Water District.

B.            Application to the District shall be made prior to commencement of building construction.

C.            No water supplied by the District may be used for any purpose other than that stated in the application.

D.            No application shall be approved which relates to property on which any violation of these ordinances exists.  No water connection shall be made to any property which is the subject of a pending application by the property owners or their agents for permission to utilize water from any other source other than the mains of the South Huntington Water District.

E.            No application will be approved nor any permit granted until all fees, deposits or other charges relating thereto and all arrearages owing from the property owner or relating to the subject property have been paid in full.

F.            No application for connection to District facilities shall be considered or approved

unless accompanied by payment of the Systems Construction Charge established by this section.  The Systems Construction Charges are set forth at Appendix “B”.  

 

The Systems Construction Charge shall be paid in addition to all other fees, deposits or other charges required pursuant to these ordinances.

G. For the purpose of determining the appropriate System Construction Charges, structures which incorporate the following four (4) elements shall be deemed non-residential uses:  (1) the facility must be group residential or short-term residential in character (group residential must have integral elements of shared amenities, such as, dining, laundry and health care facilities; short term residential must be for terms of less than one year, such as, extended stay hotels);  (2) the facility must have only minimal individual service demands (single bath and a kitchenette type sink is the maximum allowable for each unit within this service type; rental apartment, co-op and condominium units are deemed to be residential); (3) the individual units must not be separately metered; and (4) the facility’s water demand must be such that the commercial rate equitably represents the cost for additional supply and store. 

 

H.            (1)            Where a non-residential property is receiving water from the District for both irrigation purposes and for internal building usage from a single service line, and the property owner requests an additional service line for irrigation purposes only, the system construction charges set forth in sub-paragraph “F” of this Section shall not apply to the additional irrigation service line, provided the irrigation usage will not significantly increase the water consumption. 

            (2)            With the sole exception as set forth in subsection H(1) above, all non-residentiaproperties requesting more than one service line shall be required to pay the systems construction charge for each service line pursuant to the provisions of sub-paragraph F of this Section 1.

I.            When a water service is turned off or terminated for the purpose of building demolition, substantial renovation, or re-construction of the site, the status of the service will be reviewed by the District.  Any water service that is smaller than 1”, and

(i)            constructed of galvanized iron, plastic or lead,

(ii)            tapped on a main other than the main closest to the subject building, 

(iii)               actively leaking, in violation of  District Ordinances,  or

(iv)              older than 25 years,

shall not be re-used, and a new service line shall be installed in conformance with the District’s specifications.  Existing water services other than those prohibited hereby may be re-used. However, the property owner shall be responsible for ensuring that the service meets the prevailing Standards and Specifications of the District, including back flow prevention, meter pit construction, curb box location and automated meter reading equipment.  New water services require the payment of all District Application and Materials Fees and shall be constructed in accordance with the District Standards. Existing water services no longer utilized shall be discontinued at the water main at the property owner’s expense, either prior to or in conjunction with the installation of the new service.

J.            In the event a water distribution main does not extend across the real property to be developed, or if it is determined by the District that an existing water main is inadequate to supply water for the intended use of land, it shall be the responsibility of the property owner or developer to pay for the cost of water main installation, replacement, repair or extension, as the situation may require, inclusive of required valves, hydrants, services and/or other appurtenances, so that the water main is extended, as determined by the District.  

 

SECTION 2.  SPECIFICATIONS

            All water services, mains and appurtenances thereto shall be installed pursuant to specifications on file in the District Office.  A copy of such specifications may be obtained at the District Office.

 

SECTION 3.             PERMITS

A.            All permits required by Town, County or State authorities for street or highway openings shall be obtained by the property owner or his authorized agent at their own expense, and a copy shall be delivered to the District prior to the commencement of any work.  The property owner shall be directly responsible to the issuing authority for compliance with and performance of the conditions imposed by each such permit.

B.            All property owners, or their authorized representatives, must provide advance written notice

of excavation to the District and to each operator of underground facilities listed on The New York City/Long Island One-Call Center.  Failure to provide the District with written notice of excavation shall be a violation of this Ordinance and may subject the property owner to any fines described in Section 27.

C.            Permits to draw water from District hydrants will be issued to lawn and tree sprayers for an annual fee, as set forth in Appendix “C”.  .  The permits will be issued only after the lawn and tree spraying equipment has been inspected by an authorized representative of the District to confirm that such equipment meets all of the requirements of the N.Y.S. Sanitary Code.

D.            Permits to draw water from District hydrants will be issued for agricultural irrigation purposes, as set forth in Appendix “C”.. Only previous year permitted agricultural irrigation users will be permitted to reapply for Permits. A lapse of renewal in any ensuing year will make the Permit ineligible for renewal. The permit holder must utilize a District supplied water meter and consumption will be billed in accordance with the rates set forth at Section 20 of these Ordinances.

E.            Permits to draw water from District hydrants will be issued for the purpose of construction and general use.  Each such permit, when issued, will be valid for a 30 day period and the fee set for in Appendix “C”.  A Reduced Pressure Zone (R.P.Z.) backflow preventer, no larger than 1" in diameter must be installed at the hydrant connection.  The R.P.Z., together with a recent certification test report, must be presented to the District's representative at the time the application is submitted.  The permit shall be valid only for low flow and intermittent use.

F.            All permits issued by the District for the use of water supplied by the District or facilities controller by the District are subject to cancellation, revocation or suspension by the District without notice.

 

SECTION 4.            COST OF MATERIALS AND OF INSTALLATION LABOR.

The cost of all materials, including water meters, and of all labor for the installation of service lines, meters and appurtenances utilized in supplying water to any premises, from the tap on the District water main, shall be borne by the property owner.

 

SECTION 5.            TAPPING OF WATER MAINS

The tapping of water mains for service connections or for any other purpose shall be performed solely by employees of the District or by other persons authorized to do so by the District.  The fee for permission to tap a water main shall be as set forth in Appendix C., which fee shall be deemed to cover the cost of preparing all permits and work orders, handling of service materials, and labor and equipment required to perform inspections during and after completion of the installation.

SECTION 6.            MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR OF SERVICE LINES; INTERFERENCE WITH WATER MAINS.

 

A.            The Water District shall maintain water service facilities in the roadway and up  to the  property line. 

B.            The property owner shall at all times be responsible for the repair and maintenance of water service lines to District Specifications from the property line, as well as the water meter pit.  Any and all repairs made to water service lines shall be made by a licensed plumber.  Meter pit covers shall be maintained at ground level and kept clear, accessible and in workable condition at all times.

C.            In those instances where a water service(s) is tapped from a District water distribution main located in an easement area, the water service owner shall be responsible for the maintenance and repair of the water service line for its entire length.

D.            In the event a property owner shall fail to repair or maintain water service lines as required by this Ordinance, the District may provide written notice to the property owner providing clear and specific information as to the nature of the repairs and maintenance which is required by said property owner.  Said notice will be sent to the last owner of record as indicated upon the assessment rolls as maintained in the Office of the Assessor of the Town of Huntington, which notice will be mailed first class mail and certified-mail, return receipt requested.  The same notice shall also be sent by first class mail to the occupant of the premises.  In the event the property owner shall fail to effectuate the specified repairs within thirty (30) days of the mailing of said notice, the employees, agents or representatives of the District, upon Order of the Board of Commissioners of the South Huntington Water District, as evidenced by a Resolution of the Board, may enter upon the lands of the property owner for the purpose of making the required repair, pursuant to the license granted under Section 1.  The cost of effectuating said repairs shall be added to the bill for water charges, as more fully set forth at Section “18”.

E.            It shall be a violation of the Ordinances of the South Huntington Water District to interfere with, tamper with, connect to, alter, undermine and/or affect the water mains of the District.  In addition to any other civil remedy or criminal liability defined by applicable law, any property owner, person, business entity or agent thereof who violates this section shall be subject to prosecution and the imposition of civil penalties defined by law.  In addition, the property owner and its agent shall be responsible for all costs associated with any repair or replacement of water mains necessitated as a result of a violation of this provision.

SECTION 7.            WATER METERS

Each service connection to the water mains of the District shall have installed thereon a meter to measure the consumption of water.  It shall be the responsibility of all property owners to ensure that water meters are maintained in proper working order.

Cc:  Board of Water Commissioners, SHWD -  Michael McCarthy, Esq, SHWD

From:  Kevin Carroll, Superintendent

RE:  South Huntington Water District 2010 Landscaping Bid ADDENDUM - BID OPENING DATE CHANGE

Dear Prospective Bidder:

Due to a problem with the publication of the Legal Notice for this Bid in The Long Islander, the bid opening date for this proposal has been extended one week to March 4, 2010 at 2:00 PM.

All prospective bidders who have been direct-mailed bid specifications are receiving this notice by mail. Otherwise, this notice is being attached to all other “pick-up” copies of the specifications and it is now deemed as an official part of those specifications.

The requisite site walk-throughs previously scheduled for February 18 and 19, 2010 have similarly been re-scheduled to February 25 and 26, 2010. With the current snow cover, this will hopefully work to your advantage.

All other terms of the Specifications remain unchanged and must be strictly adhered to in order for you to bid.

Thank you for your cooperation.

The following ordinances, adopted by the Board of Water Commissioners of the South Huntington Water District, South Huntington, New York (the "District"), form part of the water service contract by and between the District and each purchaser of water, services, or facilities provided by the District.

 SECTION 1.            APPLICATION FOR WATER CONNECTIONS.

A.            Application for water service or for connection to District facilities shall be made in writing at the office of the District on forms provided by the District.  Such applications shall be made by the owner of the property concerned or the property owner's authorized agent.  Evidence of ownership and identification of the property shall be submitted with the application.  Every owner of land, or his agent who files an application for water service or for connection to District facilities shall be deemed to have granted to the South Huntington Water District a continuing license for the employees, representatives or officials of the District to enter upon the lands of said owner for purposes of making routine inspections of water service and/or water connections, making appropriate emergency repairs thereto, ensuring that the water service and connections are installed and maintained in accordance with the specifications of the District, and otherwise ensuring compliance with the ordinances of the South Huntington Water District.

B.            Application to the District shall be made prior to commencement of building construction.

C.            No water supplied by the District may be used for any purpose other than that stated in the application.

D.            No application shall be approved which relates to property on which any violation of these ordinances exists.  No water connection shall be made to any property which is the subject of a pending application by the property owners or their agents for permission to utilize water from any other source other than the mains of the South Huntington Water District.

E.            No application will be approved nor any permit granted until all fees, deposits or other charges relating thereto and all arrearages owing from the property owner or relating to the subject property have been paid in full.

F.            No application for connection to District facilities shall be considered or approved

unless accompanied by payment of the Systems Construction Charge established by this section.  The Systems Construction Charges are set forth at Appendix “B”. 

 The Systems Construction Charge shall be paid in addition to all other fees, deposits or other charges required pursuant to these ordinances.

G. For the purpose of determining the appropriate System Construction Charges, structures which incorporate the following four (4) elements shall be deemed non-residential uses:  (1) the facility must be group residential or short-term residential in character (group residential must have integral elements of shared amenities, such as, dining, laundry and health care facilities; short term residential must be for terms of less than one year, such as, extended stay hotels);  (2) the facility must have only minimal individual service demands (single bath and a kitchenette type sink is the maximum allowable for each unit within this service type; rental apartment, co-op and condominium units are deemed to be residential); (3) the individual units must not be separately metered; and (4) the facility’s water demand must be such that the commercial rate equitably represents the cost for additional supply and store. 

 H.            (1)            Where a non-residential property is receiving water from the District for both irrigation purposes and for internal building usage from a single service line, and the property owner requests an additional service line for irrigation purposes only, the system construction charges set forth in sub-paragraph “F” of this Section shall not apply to the additional irrigation service line, provided the irrigation usage will not significantly increase the water consumption.
