System development charges

The Eugene Water & Electric Board has a system development charge (SDC) for all new or expanded water connections, or when a significant change to land use occurs. The SDC funds growth-related additions or improvements to EWEB's water system.

The SDC charge is based on the size of the meter that is installed and the amount of water consumed. These charges have been in effect since 1999.
