TAP FEES (Effective July 19, 2005)
Tap Fees are calculated under the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Act 203. The purpose of the Act is to provide Municipalities and Authorities with a uniform methodology for determining specific fees as a fair, just and reasonable basis. The three (3) major cost components addressed in Act 203 are as follows:

  • Connection Fee
  • Customer Facilities Fee
  • Tapping Fee

CONNECTION FEE COMPONENT
The Connection Fee includes all costs associated with customer facilities installed from the system's distribution line to the property line. The Authority installs the service line connection and, as a result, does incur direct costs. The Authority uses historical average connection costs for both 3/4" and 1" connections.

CUSTOMER FACILITIES FEE COMPONENT
The Customer Facilities Fee includes all costs associated with the installation of customer-owned facilities from the property line to their structure. The Authority does not install the service line extension and does not incur any direct costs. Therefore, no dollars from this component are in the calculations.

TAPPING FEE COMPONENT
The Tapping Fee component is designed to recover the capacity of distribution facilities required to serve the customer. The fee is determined by the summarization of four (4) parts: Capacity, Distribution, Special Purpose and Reimbursement Parts. The tapping fee parts do not include the cost of operation and maintenance.

As a result of the most recent Act 203 study, the following fees are applicable:
