System Development Charge (SDC)

Growth pays for growth. The SDC compensates WaterOne for investments required in water supply, treatment, transmission and distribution facilities. The SDC is paid in addition to the New Service Connection Charge.

Any meter enlargement or meter type upgrade will be subject to an SDC equal to the difference in the current SDCs for the respective meter sizes and types. On multiple metered service connections, the SDC is based on the size and type of each individual meter. Meter sizes or types not listed below will be charged based on the standard meter capacity in gallons per minute (gpm) compared to the 5/8-inch displacement standard meter capacity.

WaterOne determines the most appropriate meter size and type based on the applicant's water usage characteristics and needs.
