Tap and Impact Fees Tables
The Environmental Finance Center and the North Carolina League of Municipalities collected information on tap and impact fees as well as a summary of the range of fees for 62 New Hampshire utilities. Tap fees are designed to recover all or a portion of the cost(materials and labor) of connecting a customer to the nearest water or sewer line. System development fees are associated with developing and maintaining system capacity as a result of connecting a new customer. The results are published in the form of tables that list each utility's fees, which only includes residential tap and impact fees. You can access the tables of tap fees and system development charges by clicking on the link below.
