Any person desiring water for building purposes shall make application to the director of public works for a permit. He shall state the time when the work will be completed, and shall pay in advance for the water at the regular rates. At the completion of the work, the estimate will be revised by the director and any additional amount will be collected, or surplus refunded, as the case may be. This section shall apply where the consumption of water is not rated by a meter.
