Permit and Inspection Fees
are collected for issuing permits to connect to District facilities. Inspection fees are charges for the District’s inspection of the construction of new developments connecting to the District’s facilities.

Annexation Fees Annexation to the District is the process of entering a land parcel into the service area of the District. The District’s annexation fees were developed based on equity in maintenance of the District’s facilities over a period of several years. These fees are clearly separate from connection fees in that there is no overlap of both fee structures.

Currently the annexation charge revenue is based on a fee of $1,905 per acre to be annexed and a $200 per application charge for processing applications for annexations submitted to the District.

Connection Fees The cost of buying a unit of capacity in the District’s facilities based on the capacity normally utilized by a single family residence. A capacity unit is expressed as one equivalent residential unit (ERU). The connection fee is the cost of buying capacity units expressed in ERUs. The value of the connection fee is normally the price of one ERU. The current District connection fee is $2,058 per ERU.
