Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority may enter into a contract with the owner of a certain parcel of real estate, located entirely in the town of Weston, with a post office address of 60 Crestwood Drive, Wellesley, to provide sewer services to the owner and any political subdivision listed in subsection (c) of section 8 of chapter 372 of the acts of 1984 and may, as a party to such contract or by separate contract, provide the conveyance of sewage from the owner's premises to the sewer system of the authority if service to the owner is not provided by a direct connection to the authority's sewer system. The connection authorized in this act shall be sized for and limited to use by the owner of the premises. The connection and any discharges into the connection shall be subject to the direction, control and regulation of the authority pursuant to the provisions of said chapter 372. The contract may permit the authority to charge the owner for all expenses and costs of connection and for sewer services it provides to the owner and shall contain other terms and conditions applicable to the connection and the provision of sewer services as determined by the authority. The political subdivision, if any, may charge the owner for the use of its sewer system to convey sewage to the authority's sewer system. The town of Weston shall not be obligated to pay any costs, fees, assessments or charges applicable to the sewer connection, and the sewer connection shall not obligate the town of Weston in any other manner.
