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 is authorized to enter into a contract with The New England Center For Children, Inc., a Massachusetts nonprofit corporation located in the town of Southborough to provide sewer services to said center. A political subdivision listed in paragraph (c) of section 8 of chapter 372 of the acts of 1984 is authorized, as a party to such contract or by a separate contract, to provide for the conveyance of sewage from said center to the sewer system of said authority if service to said center is not provided by a direct connection to said authority's sewer system. The connection authorized in this act shall be sized for and limited to use by said center, and any discharges into the connection shall be subject to the direction, control and regulation of said authority pursuant to said chapter 372.

Said contract shall include provisions to charge said center for all expenses and costs of connection and for sewer services said authority provides to said center and shall contain other terms and conditions applicable to the connection and for the provision of sewer services as determined by said authority. The political subdivision, if any, shall charge said center for the use of its sewer system to convey sewage to said authority's sewer system. Nothing in this act shall grant to the town of Southborough any rights to receive sewer services from said authority or otherwise cause said town to have any of the rights or obligations of the political subdivisions listed in said paragraph (c) of said section 8 of said chapter 372.
