Capital Recovery & Connection Fees

Capital Recovery Fees have been established to help offset the cost of major capital improvements to the City’s water and sewer system which are driven by the impacts from new development. This fee is calculated for each new customer of the City's water and sewer system and the fee is based on the customers calculated daily flow rate and location (in-City or out-of-City).

Connection Fees have been established to recover the cost of labor and materials to make a connection to the City’s water and sewer mains.  These fees are based on the size of the customer’s water meter or sewer lateral and the proximity to the City’s existing water or sewer infrastructure.

The Capital Recovery and Connection fees for City of New Bern customers have been established and are modified from time to time by the New Bern Board of Aldermen. Below are the current Capital Recovery and Connection fees:
