The article offers the author's insights on a case regarding the alleged sewage district overcharges. He states that the sewage in the sewage system (SS) is measured by each flowmeters at the four outfalls from the upper district. He mentions that several issues such as inappropriate calibration techniques have been questioned to examine the SS's flowmeters. He adds that despite the request of the upper district to examine the SS, the court did not order the flowmeter to be fixed.
