Water and Sewer/Reuse Infrastructure Funds
Established in FY15, an Infrastructure Replacement Charge will help fund replacement of aging infrastructure
within the Water Distribution and Waste Water Systems. Billed monthly, the Infrastructure Replacement Charge is
based on each individual meter size. Infrastructure Replacement Charges are collected in two operating funds: one
to account for water infrastructure and a second to account for sewer/reuse infrastructure. Amounts collected in
these funds are transferred to support cash infrastructure replacement capital projects. Infrastructure replacement
projects are labeled with specific program codes so they can be identified within pay-go (cash) capital funds 320
Council has provided pre-budget approval for changes to the Infrastructure Replacement Charges: a $0.25
monthly increase to the Water Infrastructure fee and a $1.00 increase to the Sewer/Reuse Infrastructure
fee. Fees support the ongoing maintenance of the Water Distribution and Waste Water Systems. The
Infrastructure Replacement Charge is billed monthly based on individual meter size.
