Tap Fees

Tap permits will not be issued until such time as the line to be tapped has been installed, tested and accepted by the District. In the Lakehurst Water and Sanitation District, developers must pay Lakehurst fees, Metro Wastewater Reclamation District fees, and Denver Water Department fees. In addition, in certain areas of the District participation fees must be paid to reimburse the District and the Denver Water Department for installing certain lines or features to serve the particular area concerned.  Prices are subject to change at anytime.

Fire Hydrant Meter Permits

Permits may be obtained at the district office. A $2,000.00 deposit is required for the loan of a meter and appurtenances, which shall also include the use of the fire hydrant, and the hydrant permit form  must be submitted. This deposit will be returned to you in full when the meter appurtenances are returned and found in good condition and working order.

If the meter or appurtenances are broken, lost or not returned, the $2,000.00 will be applied toward the cost of the equipment and you will be billed for the balance. All account balances must be current before deposit will be refunded.

A service charge will be assessed per month of $50 for each three inch meter. Water usage is billed at a rate of $8.10 per 1,000 gallons.
