The amount of such rates and charges shall be reasonable and sufficient to pay the cost of operation, repairs, maintenance, extension and enlargement of the water and sewage system and improvements thereof and new construction and the payment of any bonds and the interest thereon as may be issued for such water and sewage system. No revenue shall be used for the payment of bonds payable primarily by assessments against property in sewer districts.

The city is authorized to discontinue water service for any failure to pay the rates or charges fixed for either water service or the use of the sewage disposal system or both when due.
