Water And Sewer Benefit Assessments

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

Once applied, these charges remain constant unless the property classification changes, such as subdivision or residential to business and small acreage to subdivision or residential, 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:
