Tap Fees

All water tap fees are calculated by the Public Works Administration Department.

  • One (1) Capital Equivalent Residential Unit (EQR) or commonly known as “tap” in 2019 equals $4,301. A single-family residence is “tapped” at one (1) EQR.
  • The Public Works Department requires a full set of plans to calculate the tap fee.

Water Use Fees

In order to comply with State of Colorado mandates and to reduce water waste, the Town of Frisco uses a metered water billing system. Meters are installed in all Frisco properties and are required in any new construction.

The quarterly base rate of $40.33 per capital EQR provides up to 18,000 gallons of water. Consumption in excess of the 18,000 gallons will be reflected as an additional amount added to the $40.33 base rate according to the following calculation guide. Water is billed in arrears for actual use.

  • 18,000 Gallons or less $40.33 per quarter
  • + 18,001 – 35,000 Gallons $3.38 per 1,000 gallons
  • + Over 35,000 Gallons $4.74 per 1,000 gallons

For example, if you use 24,000 gallons of water in a quarter, it will cost you the $40.33 base rate for the first 18,000 gallons plus $3.38 for each additional 1,000 gallons.

6 (1,000) x $3.38 = $20.28
Base Rate = $40.33
TOTAL = $60.61

Water Rate Increase on October 1, 2019

Frisco Town Council approved a water rate and tap fee increase in June 2019, after two years without any increases. The proposed increases were approved in order to properly budget and plan for anticipated capital improvements, keep up with rising operating expenses and encourage conservation. Currently, Frisco has the second lowest tap fees in Summit County and the lowest water rates. Concurrently, Frisco Town Council also approved a generous new water efficiency and conservation program to benefit our customers who want to improve their own personal water infrastructure.
