GLRPPR Sector Resource: Water Connection Charges: A Tool for Encouraging Water-Efficient Growth
Researchers evaluated water connection charges used by 800 public water utilities in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, North Carolina and Utah. They found that 93% of the fee structures in the Southeastern states and 62% of the fee structures in the Western states used uniform water connection charges for single-family homes that took no account of key factors in influencing the design of a home's water footprint. As a result, owners of new homes are typically paying the same amount.
