SAWS Impact Fees Being Discussed at City Council

Impact fees are one-time charges to builders and developers for connecting to the city’s water and wastewater system. The fees pay for the costs of expanding water and sewer infrastructure to new homes and businesses. Impact fees are not charged to existing SAWS customers.


SAWS impact fees are reviewed every five years. The fee amounts are based on the cost of providing service to the future customers, and the distance of the building or business from the central infrastructure. Generally, impact fees are higher in the far northwest portion of the city, and lowest in the central and southern portions.

After a citizens committee review of proposed new impact fees, the SAWS Board of Trustees approved the new fees in April, and City Council is currently considering them and is scheduled to vote in May.
