Water System Development Charges

Calculating Water System Development Charges

The method of calculating depends on whether the connection is for residential or non-residential use, and the water pressure zone (PDF) service area.

Payment of the charge is due when the water service permit is issued to connect to the water system. It is composed of a combination of reimbursement, improvement and administrative cost recovery for the water system.

The Water System Development charge may be adjusted by the City Council.

Adoption of System Development Charges

The Water System Development Charge (SDC) was first adopted by the City Council in 1991. It is defined in Chapter 3.11 of the City of Grants Pass Municipal Code.
