Water Resources Acquisition Fees

​​​​​Updated Water Resource Acquisition (WRA) fees were adopted by City Council on January 21, 2015 through resolution 21287 and ordinance G-5985.  These fees are paid by new developments (which includes those obtaining larger or additional water meters) to pay its proportionate share of the costs to the city associated with providing water resources to those new developments. Fees are calculated by meter size and location of the proposed development within the city.  Currently, the City is divided into two fee zones: On-Project and Off-Project. 

The fee schedule listed below indicates On and Off Project fees for the two types of development: Single and multifamily residential domestic use, and non-residential and landscape use.​​
