Water and sewer connections larger than two-inch. The charge for a connection larger than two-inch shall be calculated by using the Virginia Department of Health Waterworks Regulation Design Criteria. Connection fees based on this criteria shall be calculated by dividing the total number of design gallons by 250 (ERC-equivalent residential connection) and multiplying by the rate established for a 3/4-inch service line.

Criteria for payment of water and/or sewer connection fees. An actual connection sufficient to commence water and/or sewer service to a building, along with the obtaining of all necessary building permits, must be made within six months of payment of the connection fee. If such connection is not made within such time period, the party paying the fee may still connect to the system upon paying the fee then in effect at the time of actual connection. A credit of 100% will be given for the previously paid connection fee.
