The Water Utilities Department is an enterprise fund, which means it's services are entirely funded by rates and fees and not out of the City’s General Fund. The Water Utility has three types of charges.
Water and Wastewater Tap Fees/Connection Fees
Water and Wastewater Connection Fees are used to recover the capital costs associated with the infrastructure needed to provide water and wastewater collection to new customers.
Watershed Improvement Fees
Watershed specific improvement fees are used by the city to recover the cost of specific projects that are intended to provide service only in those watershed areas.
