Development Fees

Development fees are dependent upon whether you simply need water service, are developing property or have a project that involves water improvement plans. The District has development fees associated with master water plan review, water improvement plan review, inspection (including infrastructure inspection and backflow inspection), protected facilities (including fire flow impact fees, where applicable) and for water connection on domestic or irrigation meters.

See our Development Fees page for more information.

Water Resources Utilization Fee for All Service Areas – $0.60 per 1,000 gallons

In October 2012, the Board established a Water Resource Utilization Fee at 10 cents per 1,000 gallons, which became effective March 1, 2013 and applies to all Metro service areas. In October 2013, the Board raised this fee to 20 cents per 1,000 gallons. In September 2014, the Board raised the fee to 40 cents per 1,000 gallons. In May 2016, the Board raised the fee to 50 cents per 1,000 gallons. In May 2018, Board raised the fee to 60 cents per 1,000 gallons. 

This fee provides funds to develop, design, and construct projects that will put to use the District’s CAP water and effluent. Specifically, the Water Resources Utilization Fee helps fund the land acquisition and design activities for the CAP Recharge, Recovery and Delivery System, the CMID Recycled Water Project, and the 2016 wheeling agreement to deliver CAP water to Metro Southwest. By using this Fee, the District avoids adding additional debt and reduces the financial impact of these initiatives.
