Water Fees and Charges[1]
Water hookup fee
NOTE: This fee is effective April 1, 2017, for those who plan on hooking up to any existing or new water district in the Town of Phelps. This includes the tapping of the main, water service pipe to the right-of-way and the curb stop set on the edge of the right-of-way. The fee of $1,500 is only for customers that are hooking up on the same side that the water main is. If the water main is on the other side of the road, added cost may occur.
$1,500
Meter pit
NOTE: If the customer needs a meter pit because the house is on a slab, has no basement or the house is more than 200 feet off the road, then the customer will be charged a meter pit fee. That includes the cost of the meter pit and the extra work done to install the meter pit.
The homeowner or customer will not be able to do any work on the water service that is within the Town right-of-way. Once the water is complete by the Town of Phelps Water Department and run to the right-of-way of the customer, then the homeowner/customer may continue running the service into their home, business or dwelling but still use the approved supplies and water pipe from Water Department regulations.

Editor’s Note: This completion scale applies to single- or two-family residences that are new builds and have not been completed within the year of the permit. The Town’s Office of Zoning and Code Enforcement has requested to utilize the completion scale and using the completed percentage as a discount to the cost of the permit. For example, if a 4,000 square foot residence has a permit cost of $800, and, during the permit year, the project is only 68% complete, the cost of a permit renewal would decrease to 32% of the uncompleted work, which would be $256.
