Water, Water Resources and Wastewater Impact Fees

Scottsdale charges water, water resources and sewer impact fees to fund infrastructure improvements and future water supplies. Impact fees must be paid in order to obtain a building permit or to set a new water meter. 

New state legislation (Senate Bill 1525) effective January 1, 2012 requires cities throughout Arizona to change their water, water resources and wastewater impact fees with new water meter requirements.  The new legislation will also require an update to Infrastructure Improvement Plans. 

On Dec. 6, 2011, City Council approved an ordinance to comply with state legislation to standardize non-residential impact fees based on the size of the water meter at each business or property.  This is similar to what most other cities in the valley are currently doing. 

There will be NO CHANGES to single family or multi-family residential development fees.
