Cross Connection Fees

All business accounts with fire protection backflow assemblies will be billed as follows. If a fire service line (per building, not per device) is:

3/4-inch to 6 inches annual fee$90
Greater than 6 inches annual fee$180

Fees are assessed on the actual utility account in October. The City will bill the current occupant. If the utility account is occupied by a tenant, the tenant and landlord will be responsible to determine who will be accountable for the fees.
All business accounts with lawn irrigation systems will be billed in October and will appear on the utility bill at the same time fire service fees are assessed. Due to the outsourcing of the program to Aqua Backflow, the administration fee has been reduced from $25 to $15.
The fee to all residential irrigation customers will be assessed on their May-June utility bills.
Questions can be directed to the City's Water Division at 630-232-1551.
