Proposed Capital Recovery Fees
Single ¾” Water Service Connection $ 1,045.00 (per each)
Single 1” Water Service Connection $ 1,740.00 (per each)
Single 2” Water Service Connection $ 5,575.00 (per each)
Use the formula below to calculate the capital recovery fee (CRF) for water meter sizes 3” to 10” based on daily water demands requested by the owner/developer and detailed in Chester Metropolitan District’s Willingness and Capability Letter to the owner/developer.
CRF = (Water Demand, gal/day) x 1.4 x 1.25 x $1.99
System Peaking Factor = 1.25
Water Loss Factor = 1.4
Proposed Collection of Capital Recovery Fees
Single ¾” Water Service Connection – Capital Recovery Fees will be paid at the time that the tap fees are paid.
Residential Subdivisions – 50% of the Capital Recovery Fees will be paid up front based on the number of lots on the approved plat and 50% paid at the time that the tap fees are paid.
Commercial/Industrial Water Connections – 100% of the Capital Recovery Fee will be paid at the time of the issuance of the Willingness and Capability Letter by Chester Metropolitan District. Fees will be based on daily water demands provided by the owner/developer’s design engineer. If, after one year, the actual daily water demands are in excess of the design engineer’s estimation which were used to determine CRF’s, the owner/developer will be assessed additional CRF’s to cover the excess water demand.
Fire Supply Line Connections – 100% of the Capital Recovery Fee will be paid at the time of the issuance of the Willingness and Capability Letter by Chester Metropolitan District. Fees will be based on the quantity of water required over the specified period of time necessary to meet fire code requirements.
