Chapter 196 AN ACT AUTHORIZING THE MASSACHUSETTS WATER RESOURCES AUTHORITY TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SEWER SERVICES THROUGH THE CITY KNOWN AS THE TOWN OF WEYMOUTH TO THE TOWN OF HINGHAM.

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith additional sewer services to property in the town of Hingham, 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 chapter 149 of the acts of 2003 and subject to the approvals required under section 2, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority may provide additional sewer services through the city known as the town of Weymouth to the property located at 105 Research road in the town of Hingham, as described in a deed recorded at the Plymouth registry district of the land court, certificate number 113229, and shown as lot 12 on the town of Hingham assessor’s map 206; provided, however, that the discharge from the property to the sewer system shall not exceed a maximum of 5,400 gallons per day unless an additional amount is approved by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. The authority may allow the property to use and be serviced by its sewer system to the same extent as parcels of property located within the district currently served by the authority; and provided, further, that the property shall be subject to all rules, regulations and requirements of the authority. All costs and expenses incurred for the engineering, design, supervision, labor, equipment and materials relative to sewer tie-in shall be paid by the owner of the property.

SECTION 2. The provision of sewer services by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority for any discharges in excess of the level authorized in section 1 of chapter 149 of the acts of 2003 shall commence only after the board of directors of the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority has approved and made other determinations in accordance with its applicable policies and after all required approvals have been received including, as applicable, the approval of the community of origin, the transporting community, other regulatory bodies where required and the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority advisory board.

Approved, August 3, 2012.
