The Commissioner shall keep a list of such users. When so authorized, the water and sewer bill for that usage period will be adjusted to reflect the amount of water estimated to have been used for the purpose of freeze-up prevention. (B) Water users who have experienced service line freezing may apply to the Commissioner for authorization to let the water run as noted above.
