Impact Fees - For Residents


Impact Fees

In order to buy into our wastewater conveyance and treatment system, residents shifting from septic to sewer and builders/developers constructing new housing units must pay impact fees to connect. See the Regional San Consolidated Ordinance to determine if you are connecting in a “new” or “infill” area.

The Economic Development Treatment Capacity Bank Program provides a discount on sewer impact fees to new customers connecting to Regional San’s sewer system. Find out more.
