At the time a building permit is issued, the District assesses "Tap Fees" to compensate the District for all capital costs associated with expanding the District's water delivery system. Tap fees must be paid for all new building permits, any change of a structure's use and any remodeling of an existing structure. Appendix A of the District's Rules and Regulations provides detailed information on how these Tap Fees are assessed.
The Tap Fee is $12,000 per EQR.
