Amend and Update the Waterworks Operation Fee Regulations
Action 5867
General Information
Action Summary The intent of the regulatory action is to amend and update the Waterworks Operation Fee regulation to ensure it is clear, concise, and more accurately reflects the benefit members of the regulated community receive through the technical and regulatory assistance ODW provides. The goal of the regulatory action is to establish operation fees for all waterworks, whether community, NTNC, TNC, or wholesale waterworks, that fairly distribute the costs of the drinking water program among all beneficiaries, taking equity and environmental justice issues as they relate to the fees waterworks pay, into consideration to ensure fairness. The amendments will also help to ensure ODW has sufficient funds to conduct the Waterworks Technical Assistance Program established in Code of Virginia ยง 32.1-171.1 B.
