(a) Reuse in Kind. Developers requesting reuse of existing service in kind must make an application for this use to the district. Reuse in place or relocation of point of service within the developing project is allowed with full credit for prior capital facilities charges provided:

(i) Application is made to the district;

(ii) Payment of administrative fees identified in district fees and charges is received; and

(iii) Existing service connection(s) if not used in place are abandoned at the main by district staff for water services with time and material cost paid by the developer; and abandoned by the developer at developer’s cost where directed by district staff for sewer service line(s).

(b) Upsizing with Credit for Existing Water and/or Sewer Connection Capital Facility Charges. Developers if seeking credit for prior connections towards the connection fees for upsized services will receive consideration if:

(i) Request is made to district for credit for existing services; and

(ii) Existing service connection(s) if not used in place are abandoned at the main by district staff for water services with time and material cost paid by the developer; and abandoned by the developer at developer’s cost where directed by district staff for sewer service line(s).

The credit amount shall be the general capital facilities fee paid at the time of the existing service connection. If the amount paid for the existing connection cannot be determined, then a base credit of $100.00 for water connection and $1,000 for sewer connection shall be used in calculation of credit towards the upsized connection fee in place at the time of service request.
