What Does a Connection Fee Include?

Apr 18, 2016

For residential customers, the connection fee is a one-time fee assessed when a customer formally applies for service (when service is available to the property.)  WCSA implements a two-part connection fee. This comprehensive fee consists of a tap fee, which covers the physical cost of making the tap into the system, setting the meter and processing the necessary paperwork; and a system fee, which is a portion of the cost to purchase the required amount of capacity to serve a new customer in WCSA’s existing water treatment and distribution systems.
