CCWRD Service Rules

City of North Las Vegas

* Sewer/Water Line Plan Review Submittal Application * Single-Family Residence Submittal Application and Checklist * Water Service Application Fee per CNLV Rate Schedule

  • 'Water Service Application Fee' shall mean a non-refundable fee required of all applicants for water service at the time water plans are submitted for review, or at the time application for service is made if water plans are not required. The fee is based on the size of the meter to be installed (except for multi-family residential where it is based on the number of dwelling units) and is intended to offset administrative costs such as those associated with plans review, system modeling and consultant services. The fee is non-refundable, valid for two (2) years from the time of payment, and may be applied to revisions up to the time of water plan approval. The application fee is required for the reactivation of a service classified as deserted, a temporary service, or an interim service.“ (Water Service Rules and Regulations)
