Systems Development Charges

Sunrise collects system development charges (SDC’s) pursuant to ORS 223.297-223.314 at the time of water service installation. SDC’s pay for future improvements to the water system and reimburse ratepayers for a portion of previous investments in water treatment, transmission, pumping, and storage.

Installation charges are based on the actual cost of materials and labor associated with the installation of a new meter and service connection. Charges for residential meters are generally uniform, however, larger meters and unusual installations may require an estimate to be produced and paid prior to installation. Please contact Technical Services for an accurate price quote. 

The water line from the meter assembly to the premise is NOT provided by Sunrise. Property owners are responsible for installation and maintenance of that water line.
