What are connection charges?

Connection charges for water, sewer, and storm water ensure that each connecting property bears its share of the cost of the public utility systems and the cost of materials. A one-time charge is imposed on new development or connections, or expanded connections to the system as a condition of service. Connection charges apply to any customer requesting a new service or a change in service.
