Tap Fee:

This is a one-time assessment for properties within the original District boundaries. Assessment is made after main water and/or wastewater lines are completed and within 100 feet of a lot. This reimburses the District for the engineering, surveying, excavating, materials, and labor related to the line installation. It is based on actual construction costs and is shared equally among the served lots.

Main Line Extension Fee:

This is assessed to properties not within the original District boundaries. It is applicable to properties where District main water and/or wastewater lines(s) are not within 100 feet of a specific property. The applicant requesting the service pays for all construction costs related to the extension. New subdivisions/developments are responsible for all water and/or wastewater line extensions.
