The fees must be calculated by Water and Wastewater personnel and submitted to City Hall prior to receiving your payment, so please contact our department for the exact fees of YOUR project.

You will need the following information:

Owner/Project Name
Number of Meters/Meter Sizes

At the discretion of the Water and Wastewater Director, tapping fees may be waived if Developer/Owner will be making the necessary taps.

All line extensions and appurtenances required for connection to the City's infrastructure will be at the sole cost and expense of the project Developer/Owner.

All non-residential and multi-family developments shall be required to connect to the wastewater collection system at a manhole.  If a manhole does not exist at the location of the desired connection, one shall be installed at the expense of the Developer/Owner.

Fire Lines:

"Fireline is a common industry term and major factor in the design and construction of commercial, industrial, residential, municipal, and institutional projects.  It is the first line of defense against fires and essential to public safety.  These systems must be fully operational and free of defect."
