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, 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:
