In the event that the fees, rates or charges for the services and facilities of any
water or sewer system shall not be paid as and when due, any unpaid balance thereof
and all interest accruing thereon shall be a lien on any parcel or property affected
thereby. Such liens shall be superior and paramount to the interest on such parcel or property
of any owner, lessee, tenant, mortgagee or other person except the lien of county
taxes and shall be on a parity with the lien of any such county taxes. In the event that any such service charge shall not be paid as and when due and
shall be in default for thirty days or more the unpaid balance thereof and all interest
accrued thereon, together with attorneys fees and costs, may be recovered by the district
in a civil action, and any such lien and accrued interest may be foreclosed or otherwise
enforced by the district by action or suit in equity as for the foreclosure of a mortgage
on real property.
