Water Fees for Dublin

DSRSD Water Capacity Reserve Fees
 
DSRSD provides potable and recycled water distribution services for Dublin. New connections represent an increase in demand for water distribution services. The DSRSD Code requires that this demand be assessed in the form of a capacity reserve fee (formerly known as a connection fee) payable to DSRSD upon issuance of a City of Dublin building permit. Customers are purchasing capacity in the DSRSD water distribution system. Fees are based on meter size.  Please note that accessory dwelling units (ADUs) do not require a separate fee unless an additional water meter is requested.

Regional Wastewater Fee Installment Program

DSRSD is assisting the cities in its service area with their efforts to attract new restaurants, businesses, and affordable housing. Normally these new customers must pay a regional wastewater capacity reserve fee in advance. DSRSD offers an installment program that spreads payment of this fee over a period of up to 10 years.

To qualify for the program, you must be a new affordable residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional customer of DSRSD. Also, the regional portion of your wastewater capacity reserve fees must be between $25,000 - $100,000.

Businesses that participate in the deferred payment program will be required to:

  • Install an individual water meter on the portion of property that is covered under this program, so that interior water consumption may be measured.
  • Provide a 20% down payment of the regional fee, pay an up-front administrative fee of $3,060, and pay 100% of the local fees.
  • Agree to pay the remaining balance in equal monthly installments plus 5% per annum interest for a term not exceeding 10 years.
  • Enter into a standard agreement with the District that will be recorded against the property record of the parcel where the business is to be located. The standard agreement must be signed by the fee title property owner.

For more information about this program, please call (925) 875-2249.
