Water Tap Fee Increase
Residential water services 1" and smaller are installed by CWLP at a flat rate in accordance with City Code. Effective September 1, 2022 the following costs will apply:

3/4" or 1" services inside the city limits = $1,800

3/4" or 1" services outside the city = $2,100

Street and/or sidewalk repairs necessitated by the service installation will be the responsibility of the customer

Long (over 60') services will be assessed an additional $20 per foot in addition to the base charge

This increase from the rates set on May 1, 2016 are due to an increase in material and labor costs.
