Water And Sewer Benefit Assessments

As authorized by Baltimore County Code 2003, Section 20-3-201, these charges are levied on all properties within the Metropolitan District, improved and unimproved, to recover construction costs of water and sewer mains and are amortized over a 40 year period.

Once applied, these charges remain constant unless the property classification changes (i.e. subdivision/residential to business, small acreage to subdivision/residential, etc.) or unless the property is subdivided, sold or transferred. Charges are based on the average width of the property and are calculated using the following rates:
