Chapter 37 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE MASSACHUSETTS WATER RESOURCES AUTHORITY TO GRANT ACCESS TO ITS SEWER SYSTEM TO A CERTAIN PROPERTY IN THE TOWN OF SHARON.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to forthwith allow the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority to provide certain services to a property in the town of Sharon, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

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

SECTION 1. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority may provide sewer services through the town of Walpole sewer system to the property located at 25 Providence highway, state highway Route 1, in the town of Sharon, as shown on a deed recorded at the Norfolk county registry of deeds, Book 22097, Page 18, provided that the discharge may not exceed a maximum of 15,000 gallons per day, unless an additional amount is approved by the authority. The authority may allow the property to be used and serviced by said sewer system to the same extent as parcels of property located within the district currently being served by the authority. All costs and expenses incurred for engineering, design, supervision, labor, equipment, and materials relative to the sewer tie-in shall be paid by the property owner.

SECTION 2. Notwithstanding section 1, the provision of sewer services by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority shall commence only after the authority board of directors has voted approval having first made findings as set forth in paragraph (c) of section 8 of chapter 372 of the acts of 1984 and having made such other determinations in accordance with applicable policies of the authority and after all required approvals have been received including, as applicable, the approval of the community of origin, transporting community, other regulatory bodies if required and the authority advisory board.

Approved May 7, 2007.
