Sewer Connection

North Sewer District


For the North Sewer District the fee for connection of existing households is $1,000. The fee for new construction or renovation of households or commercial buildings which adds flow to the system is $2.67 per gallon based on a 4 to 1 reduction goal in accordance with the standard gallon per day tables of the Department of Environmental Protection.

Example: The addition of 1 bedroom is 110 gallons/day times $2.67 times 4 equals $1,174.80.

All of the funds collected for new or upgraded connections are segregated for I&I removal and/or major sewer projects.

Weir River Sewer District


For the Weir River Sewer District the Sewer Commission must first decide if there is adequate capacity for additional properties and/or bedrooms.  There is no separate connection fee at this time. However, connection of buildings which have not paid a betterment is $8,153 for Phase I and $12,348 for Phase II.  These were the betterment's assessed per unit for the construction of these projects.  The fee for an additional bedroom over three is $2,717.67 for Phase I and $4,166.00 for Phase II.
