Water Special Assessment Fees

The capital reserve fee is a one-time charge to any single residential, commercial, or industrial customer connecting to LCUB's water distribution system. This charge enables LCUB to fund capital expenditures for water treatment plant expansions. The maintenance fee is a one-time charge to any single residential, commercial, or industrial customer connecting to LCUB's water distribution system. This charge enables LCUB to provide for additional maintenance on the water distribution 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.
