  2  2    b.  The operation of a public water supply system,
  2  3 including any part of the system.  The commission shall adopt
  2  4 a fee schedule which shall be based on the total number of
  2  5 persons served by public water supply systems in this state.
  2  6 However, a public water supply system shall be assessed a fee
  2  7 of at least twenty=five dollars.  A public water supply system
  2  8 not owned or operated by a community and serving a transient
  2  9 population shall be assessed a fee of twenty=five dollars.
  2 10 The commission shall calculate all fees in the schedule to
  2 11 produce total revenues equaling three hundred fifty thousand
  2 12 dollars for each fiscal year, commencing with the fiscal year
  2 13 beginning July 1, 1995, and ending June 30, 1996.  For each
  2 14 fiscal year, one=half of the fees shall be deposited into the
  2 15 administration account and one=half of the fees shall be
  2 16 deposited into the public water supply system account.  By May
  2 17 1 of each year, the department shall estimate the total
  2 18 revenue expected to be collected from the overpayment of fees,
  2 19 which are all fees in excess of the amount of the total
  2 20 revenues which are expected to be collected under the current
  2 21 fee schedule, and the total revenue expected to be collected
  2 22 from the payment of fees during the next fiscal year.  The
  2 23 commission shall adjust the fees if the estimate exceeds the
  2 24 amount of revenue required to be deposited in the fund account
  2 25 pursuant to this paragraph.
