Payment of Standby Fees

The water district utilizes Standby Fees to maintain connections to be available to existing system customers where water system expansion is not required.  Customers that are paying standby fees also receive the additional benefit of a waiver of normal impact fees.  Customers in the Standby program who fail to stay current on their standby fees place the district and its other customers in a financially unsustainable position by reducing ongoing revenue and future impact fee revenue.

 Effective January 1, 2018, the District will no longer extend the impact fee waiver to customers who fall behind on their standby fee payment beyond 90 days.  Customers over 90 days delinquent will have until March 31st, 2018 to come current on past due standby fees or they will forfeit an impact fee waiver.  Once forfeited, customers may, by restoring their standby account to current, receive a credit toward the impact fee in an amount equal to the total standby fee paid until a regular water connection is installed.
