c. Reimbursement to customers and water users, in whole or in part, on proper claim therefor in such form and manner as the Drought Coordinator shall prescribe, of such sums collected from customers and water users, upon determination by the Drought Coordinator that the sums were either improperly levied, or that the sums have caused an undue hardship, or serve no useful purpose in the furtherance of the purposes of Executive Order No. 104, or such other justifiable circumstances as determined by the Drought Coordinator. Notice of the right to file for the reimbursement shall be included in customers' water bills and customers shall have 1 year from the date of receipt of the notice to file a claim; and
