The following development fees may apply:

Capacity Fees

Capacity fees are applied to all new metered service connections, and for existing services that are increasing metered supply. They are meant to keep existing customers from bearing the burden of the capital projects needed to supply water availability for our growing community.

For residential units, including condominiums, apartments and single-family homes, the capacity fee for a 5/8” meter is assessed by unit size rather than by meter size, as follows:

GW Unit Type

$660

Capacity fees do not apply to dedicated single-family residential irrigation meters that are connected to the existing residential service line.

Availability Fees

Water availability fees apply to all wholesale water purveyors who enter into a Water Supply Agreement to purchase water from Greenville Water. Water availability fees do not apply where wholesale water purveyors have entered into a Water Supply and Capacity Agreement with Greenville Water. Please contact Development Services for any wholesale account adjustments at (864) 241-6100.

Contribution Fees

Officially referred to as a Contribution in Aid of Construction (CIA) Fee, the purpose is to help pay for the expense of extending water mains in the Greenville Water service area. Effective September 1, 2015, Contribution Fees will be determined by the size of the tap and apply to every district. Contribution fees also apply to private fire protection systems. Contribution fees are collected uniformly throughout the distribution system.

Tapping Fees

Note: For taps of 4-inches or larger on lines of 48″ or larger, the tap fee will be based on the estimated actual cost as determined by Greenville Water.

Meter Fees

Meter fees cover the purchase and installation costs of new meters. For all accounts within the City of Greenville, meter fees are waived, except for irrigation meters. Irrigation meters are subject to meter fees.

For existing meters that need to be relocated, Greenville Water charges $300. Call (864) 241-6100 for specific details regarding meter relocation.

Note: Greenville Water reserves the right to determine the size and type of all meters installed.

Service Inspection Fees

Service inspection fees are applicable where Greenville Water is notified by the plumber that the job is ready for tapping and/or meter installation but does not meet Greenville Water’s specifications, thereby requiring extra trips. Each such additional trip is subject to the following Inspection Fee, payable in advance:

Inspection Fee – $275
