For the purpose of these Regulations, "excess water usage <br />penalties" means the penalties imposed by the water company <br />for the use of water in excess of the water allocation established <br />by the water company for the multi - family residence in which <br />the rental unit is located. <br />CSD08 A, \ords \passthru.wat <br />
