System Development Charges – Commercial, Industrial, and Multi-Family Residential
The System Development Charge (SDC) is a one (1) time fee assessed to a new customer to help finance development of the utility system pertaining to production, treatment, and storage necessary to serve new customers.
SDCs for all commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential properties are determined by fixture units. The Meter Application and Fixture Count Submittal Form must be filled out. The form can be found on our website or by contacting the Engineering Department. Instructions for application submittal are located at the top of the form.
The following table shows examples of fees that are due to CUD prior to CUD performing any work to provide water service to a customer:
NOTE: The water meter and box will be inspected at the time of the STEP tank C/O inspection. The following criteria must be satisfied for the meter/box to be accepted and the permit released for pickup.
>> Meter box is installed and not damaged or distorted from improper backfill
>> Lid is installed
>> Meter box is set to grade
>> Transponder is in place inside box
>> Meter shutoff is accessible
If any issues occur that require repair or replacement, call CUD at (615) 893-7225 to request a work order prior to requesting the C/O inspection. This will expedite the process for obtaining the permit. If criteria are not met, issuance of the C/O could be delayed.
