The new account fee is a one-time charge implemented to cover the costs related to system capacity needs. This process helps lessen the need for existing customers to pay for system expansions entirely through increased user rates.

ReWa's new account fee is based on the size of the water meter installed (excluding irrigation and fire flow meters). Since wastewater flow is generally a direct function of water flow, the wastewater new account fee is correlated to the size of the water meter. We believe this process is equitable and administratively efficient.
