Water System Development Charges

The Water System Development Charge (SDC) was first adopted by the City Council in 1991 and is defined in Chapter 3.11 of the City of Grants Pass Municipal Code. It is charged and payable upon issuance of a water service permit to connect to the water system and is composed of a combination of reimbursement, improvement and administrative cost recovery for the water system.

The method of calculating the Water SDC depends on whether the connection is for residential or non-residential use, and the water pressure zone (PDF) service area the connection is in. The Water SDC is subject to adjustments by the City Council. Please see the attached SDC brochure (PDF) for details on current charges .
