Contact Sewer Rating for fee information. In general, fees paid to the city prior to connection to the sanitary sewer system consist of two major components: connection (capacity) fees, and assessment fees.

  • Connection (capacity) Fees: Commercial connection (capacity) fees are calculated per plumbing fixture based on the estimated flow and strength of the waste. Food service and industrial type services are calculated differently. 
  • Assessment Fees: The assessment fee is based on the average cost of an 8-inch sewer line in the street and will include a service line to the edge of the right-of-way of your property. The assessment is an average cost to construct pipe, manholes, pavement restoration, and permits as well as design, survey and inspection of the project. The assessment fee is an average cost of projects rather than dividing the cost of the particular project which serves your area.
