Multiple Connection Service is available only for apartments, manufactured housing parks, and multiunit residential structures such as duplexes. All other residential service must comply with the one dwelling per meter policy stated in Section 3.07 of this Tariff.

Whenever Aqua determines that the number of dwelling units or pad sites connected to a master meter exceeds the number of units that have been paid for by the member, the member shall pay a System Development Fee equal to the System Development Fee for a 5/8″ meter times the number of additional dwelling units or pad sites that are connected to the meter. The System Development fee for the additional dwelling units or pad sites shall be paid within 30 days of the date that Aqua provides notice to the member.
