Tucson To Impose Water Fees On New Development

The Tucson City Council will impose a fee to connect new homes to the water system to make new development to pay for excess capacity.

"Water officials proposed the fee as a way to make new development pay for the cost of excess capacity that is already built into the water system. The additional capacity is to accommodate growth and is paid for by existing customers...Southern Arizona Home Builders Association spokes-man Alan Lurie asked why the city would want to change its method of paying for system expansion from having the entire community share in the cost to dunning new home buyers, particularly at a time when the economy is so bad."
