Wastewater Special Assessment Fees

The capital reserve fee is a one-time charge to any single residential, commercial, or industrial customer connecting to LCUB's wastewater system. This charge enables LCUB to fund capital expenditures for wastewater treatment plant expansions. The maintenance fee is a one-time charge to any single residential, commercial, or industrial customer connecting to LCUB's wastewater system. This charge enables LCUB to provide for additional maintenance on the wastewater system. EPA strongly recommends that a maintenance charge, separate from normal revenues, be assessed.

The fees will be assessed and payment made up-front for all residential, commercial, or industrial developments based on the total number of services being provided. If the development is staged as multi-phase, each phase will be assessed the fees at the time LCUB approves the design plans.

NOTES:

  1. The fee for residential customers is based on an average daily discharge of 145 gallons per household.
  2. For the purpose of this fee, small commercial (office rental space) is assessed the same fee as residential customers.
  3. Commercial and industrial customers must provide LCUB with maximum daily discharge quantities to calculate the fee. After 6 months, LCUB reserves the right to adjust the fee based on actual discharge.
  4. LCUB has established the capital reserve and maintenance fees using TDEC's design basis for sewage works.
