Frequently Asked Questions

What is a cost share extension?

This is an option we provide to those that do not want to wait for water service, which can be a time consuming process. These members agree to pay a portion of the cost of constructing a water main to their property. Cost share projects can be shared with neighbors that are along the same road that lacks a water main. Along with the neighbors that agree to share the cost, the co-op will also help pay for the extension with 25% of the cost.

What kind of costs are associated with a cost share extension?

A membership fee for each meter added on the extension, applicable road bore costs, as well as engineering and easement fees.

What are the payment terms of a cost share extension?

To determine the total cost, the interested party/member pays a $200 non refundable deposit. Once the length is determined an exact cost will be provided so the party/member can decide if they want to continue with the project. The payment is used for materials and necessary construction permits. It is broken into two payments. The first is sent in with the Residential Users Contract. The co-op will also help pay for the extension with 25% of the cost.
