New Connections and Fees
WSES may impose a Sewer Capital Recovery Fee on owners based on single family equivalents assessed for each property. This is to cover the capital cost for the installation of sewers in the various areas of Langford.
Within existing sewer specified areas, WSES may also impose a one-time connection fee for new connections to the sewer system. This physical connection fee is based on per inch of diameter of the connecting pipe.
WSES will impose annual user fees based on cubic meter of water consumed through winter months. User fee consumption data is calculated by the Capital Regional District (CRD) Water Department.
WSES will impose a one-time account set-up charge of $25.00 for residential connections and up to $125.00 for all other connections. These will apply each time an account is set-up by the owner of a lot or property.
