New Account, Construction, & Remodels

The following forms must be filled out and tap fees must be paid if:


  • You are building a new structure
  • You are tearing down and rebuilding a structure
  • You are adding square footage to any structure
  • You are adding capacity to an existing account

The District will verify compliance with all applicable requirements, calculate connection fees, and generate a connection fee invoice for the customer.


It is best to contact the District with any changes to ensure that you are grandfathered for existing square footage and verify that there is the ability to have water and wastewater service.



You can apply online using our connection application form.




Tap Fees

A Tap Fee is the system impact fee collected by the District for the right to connect to the water or sewer system.  The amounts of these fees vary by location, district, and type of facility.  Tap fees are calculated based on square footage for residential, assessment of fixtures for commercial, and a combination of both for mixed use.


2019 schedule of fees and charges are available for the Authority and District.


Other fees that may be required prior to connection to the system could include plant investment fees, water storage fees, and inclusion fees.  Please contact a customer service representative for more information on fees that may be applicable at 970-476-7480.


All tap fees must be mailed or delivered to our main office at 846 Forest Road, Vail, CO 81657.
