Tap and Service Fees
24-hour Customer Service: 817-392-4477
Tap fees are associated with connections to existing public water or sewer lines that do not exceed 54 feet from the property line. All new connections incur both a tap and impact fee. Water taps also require a meter deposit for billling purposes. A licensed plumber must connect the tap at the property line to the homeowner’s or business’s private service lines.
Any connection in excess of 54’ is considered an extension project. These are more expensive with charges incurred per linear foot, with an 8” diameter minimum. If taps are done under an extension project by a pre-qualified private contractor, visit the Water Engineering Development section on the lower level for assistance. The Water Engineering Development Section can be reached at 817-392-8369 or 817-392-8428.
