If impact fees were paid but development never occurred, the capacity may be transferred to another site within the same wastewater treatment plant through a site to site transfer application.

What You Need

All site to site transfer applications must be accompanied with:

  • A site plan or survey indicating the dimensions of the property must be attached to the Wastewater Capacity Reservation Transfer Application when the site is:
    • Property is not located in a subdivision
    • Located on a portion of a lot or reserve in a subdivision; or
    • An acreage tract
  • A title report less than thirty (30) days old must be submitted for the property from which capacity is to be transferred.
  • Written approval of the transfer from any and all lien holders listed on the title report.
  • Verification that the impact fees or capital recovery have been paid for the wastewater to be transferred.

Please use GeoLink HUB to identify your wastewater treatment plant.
