Town of Clayton Water Tower at Sunset
Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

The Town of Clayton is inviting the public to comment on potential changes to public water and sewer system development fees.

The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed House Bill 436 (HB 436) to help address fee inconsistencies among public providers, including calculation methodologies and implementation. The new law allows public water and sewer providers like the Town of Clayton to charge water & sewer System Development Fees (SDFs) to recover all or a portion of the capital investment made by the Town to provide sufficient capacity in its system to serve new users. 

The Town of Clayton recently commissioned Black & Veatch, a global utility consulting firm, analyze its water and sewer System Development Fees (SDFs) considering current events, in order to ensure compliance with HB 436.

The Town of Clayton proposes to update water and sewer System Development Fees for Fiscal Year 2019.The fees are charged to only new customers.
