- 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 6 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 6 equals $1,762.20.
All of the funds collected for new or upgraded connections are segregated for I&I removal and/or major sewer projects.
