Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. The town of Hopkinton is hereby authorized to connect certain of its common sanitary sewers with the sewerage system of the town of Milford, and thereafter the town of Milford shall receive and dispose of the sewage entering its said system through such common sanitary sewers; provided, however, that an agreement to this effect shall be made between the two towns, acting through the boards or officers having charge of sewers in the respective towns. Said agreement shall state the terms and conditions upon which the said connection is to be made, and shall be recorded by the town clerks in the records of their respective towns. Said agreement may provide for the payment by the town of Hopkinton to the town of Milford of a stated sum at the time the connection is made, and for a yearly rental beginning with the year in which the connection is made. Such rental may be based upon the number of entrances made to said common sanitary sewers. Said agreement shall also state the terms, conditions and regulations in accordance with which such entrances may be made within the town of Hopkinton.
SECTION 2. The selectmen of the town of Hopkinton or such other board or officer as the town may designate, may from time to time establish just and equitable annual charges for the use of the common sanitary sewers connected with the sewerage system of the town of Milford, and the provisions of chapter eighty-three of the General Laws shall apply to the collection of such charges and to liens therefor upon abutting lands.
SECTION 3. No connection shall be made under the provisions of this act with the sewerage system of the town of Milford until a plan showing such proposed connection and the territory within the town of Hopkinton to which said system is to be extended, and the agreement above provided for have both been submitted to the department of public health and approved by said department. Such a plan shall also be filed in the office of the town clerk of each town.
SECTION 4. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
