Sewer Connection Fees

Sewer Connection (Capacity) Fees are paid when a building or residence is connected to the public sewer system. While this normally applies to new construction of houses or commercial property, Sewer Connection Fees may also be required when existing buildings or businesses are modified in a way that results in additional wastewater discharge being generated.

Capacity Fees are established for new users of the public sewer system and are based on a “buy-in” approach, where the new user is buying-in to all of sanitation capital assets. This one-time fee is a fair share of the cost of these capital assets which are needed to collect, treat, and safely recycle or dispose of wastewater.

The potential usage (i.e., residential or commercial) determines the fees required when connecting to the public sewer system.
