Connection Fees

Connection fees were established by Board of Directors in accordance with the GNHWPCA ordinance consistent with the Connecticut DEP – “Methods of Capital Cost Recovery on WPCA Projects, January 1997.” Fees were based on a methodology where new customers are charged for existing available system capacity based upon the actual estimated value of the capacity.

In addition, a portion of the fee is based upon the cost associated with future improvement to the system, or in our case, removal of infiltration and inflow. A 2006 Rate Study equated these costs in proportion to an amount of “unit” flow discharged to the sanitary sewer system. The “Flow Proportion” allows for assessment of each property based on the property owner’s estimated future use of the system through the size of their respective water meter.
