Please note: After March 1, 2021 sewer districts will no longer apply. Applications submitted before this date will be grandfathered in. 

For projects submitted beginning March 1, 2021, wastewater capacity fees are based on the number of equivalent residential units (ERU's) associated with the existing or proposed development. The cost per ERU is $1,237.00, therefore, to determine the capacity fees, multiply the number of ERU's per project times $1,237.00. The capacity fee for a single-family residence is 1 ERU or $1,237.
