(b) Relocation, removal or abandonment of existing public water main.
(c) New public sewer main extension.
(d) Relocation, removal or abandonment of existing public sewer main.
(e) Installation of a new sewer lateral to a public sewer main within the public right-of-way or an existing district utility easement.
(f) Construction of, or modifications to, a sewer lift station.
(g) Other activities as deemed appropriate for a DEA by the general manager.
(2) Payment of applicable developer extension fees, charges and deposits shall be made in accordance with the requirements set forth in Chapter 9.05 SLWSDC.
(3) Connections to the district water or sewer system that do not require a developer extension agreement shall be made in accordance with the adopted standards in Chapter 6.20 SLWSDC and SLWSDC Title 9.
(4) Any developer that is a state agency or unit of local government may be deemed exempt at the district’s sole discretion from any DEA provision that requires a developer to secure its performance with a surety bond or other financial security device including cash or an assigned account.
(5) Any developer that is a state agency or unit of local government (“municipality”) shall have the option of: (a) complying with any DEA provision that requires a maintenance bond, or (b) agreeing to correct any defects in labor and/or materials associated with work for a period of two years from the date of execution of the DEA. The district in its sole discretion may identify any defects that require correction. The district is responsible for reinspection of the work prior to the two-year anniversary date of execution. If the district identifies no defects, no further correction work will be required of the municipality. [Res. 807 § 1 (Exh. 1), 2021.]
