(a)  may act under subclause (1) or (2) or may refuse to do so, and
(b)  must give the applicant written notice of its decision.
(4)  If a service charge is adjusted under this clause, the water supply authority—
(a)  must give written notice of the adjustment to the person liable to pay the service charge, and
(b)  may recover any increase as if it were part of the service charge, even if an objection or appeal has been lodged but not determined, and
(c)  must refund any amount by which a service charge already paid has been decreased, or credit the amount towards payment of any amount then payable by the person liable to pay the service charge to the water supply authority.
