Utility Rates & Fees


Public Utilities Rates & Fees are set forth annually by the Board of Supervisors in the approved Public Utilities Budget, and become effective July 1 of each year.  Applicable Rates & Fees may vary by service location.  Contact DPU for specific rates & fees.


All open accounts are subject to the minimum utility service charge, regardless of the usage. 

To open or transfer a utility account, customers must submit a Utility Service Application, along with the applicable fees.  Rental property & tenant utility customers must also submit a signed Landlord Authorization Form with their application & fees.

Customers wishing to voluntarily terminate service must do so by submitting a completed Termination of Service Form to DPU.

All Public Utilities rates & fees are assessed based on water meter size.  Please contact DPU regarding rates & fees for water meters larger than four (4) inches.

FY2017 Public Utilities Fees (effective July 1, 2016)


New Customers/Account Transfers

Water & sewer fees are based on the size of the water meter to be installed.  All appropriate application fees must be submitted to DPU with an application for a new or transferred utility account, prior to utility service being initiated.  A non-refundable Administration Fee plus a Utility Account Deposit are required for all new & transferred accounts.  Deposits are credited to the customer’s final bill after DPU receives written notice of the customer’s request to terminate service.  Additionally, in order to establish utility service, other fees as listed below may apply.
