What is a capital recovery fee?
A fee that is charged to recoup the cost of building and maintaining the sewer infrastructure, sewer mains, manholes, and pump stations. The capital recovery fee amount in your area can be found on the sewers page under departmental policy.

The fee is charged on a gallon per day (GPD) basis, or average daily flow. Gallons per day are determined by dwelling type. A single family detached home is assigned 300 GPD. Visit the sewers page to check the sewer design flow list for GPD assignments.

Sample Calculation:
  • Capital recovery fee (Stanton) = $2.40 per GPD
  • Single family detached home = 300 GPD
  • Total capital recovery fee amount = $720
