In accordance with Chapter 37-5
and Chapter 28-2
of the Virginia Beach Code, all property owners who have water and sewer service available to their property are required to pay water and sewer connection fees.
Effective July 1, 2014, Public Utilities will discontinue the water and sewer drainage fixture units (DFU) based connection fee structure. The new capital recovery fee structure utilizes water meter size as the basis for the connection fee.
Between July 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014, mandatory connection fees can be paid according to either old or new structure; however, all requirements under the process dictated by that fee schedule must be met.
DFU based connection fees are as follows until June 30, 2014.
|Sewer Resource Recovery Fee per Drainage Fixture Unit
|Residential Water Tap and Meter Fee (standard 5/8" residential service)
