The cost of these improvements is shared proportionately by new users. Capacity Fees vary and are proportional to the expected volume of wastewater discharge. These charges are determined individually by the District’s staff at a rate of $1050.00 per REU (Residential Equivalent Unit which is defined as a discharge of 400 gallons per day). Expected discharge volumes of greater than 400 gallons per day are calculated at the same rate of$1050.00 per 400 gallons per day. The minimum Capacity Fee is $1050.00. For manufacturing, this Capacity Feeequates to $2.62 per gallon.
