473.519 1972 U.S. WATER POLLUTION CONTROL ACT: USE CHARGE SHARES.
Each local government unit shall adopt a system of charges for the use and availability of the
metropolitan disposal system which will assure that each recipient of waste treatment services
within or served by the unit will pay its proportionate share of the costs allocated to the unit
by the council under section 473.517, as required by the federal Water Pollution Control Act
amendments of 1972, and any regulations issued pursuant thereto. Each system of charges shall
be adopted as soon as possible and shall be submitted to the council. The council shall review
each system of charges to determine whether it complies with the federal law and regulations. If
it determines that a system of charges does not comply, the adopting unit shall be notified and
shall change its system to comply, and shall submit the changes to the council for review. All
subsequent changes in a system of charges proposed by a local government unit shall also be
submitted to the council for review.
