Water Distribution Charge

The water distribution charge is a flat annual fee billed on the July 1 Property Tax bill that provides funds for repairs and maintenance of major facilities such as pumping stations, transmission mains and storage facilities.

These charges are authorized by the Baltimore County Code 2015, Article 20, and the Executive Order. They are determined by the size of the meter servicing the property.

This charge begins when the water meter is applied for in the Baltimore County Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspections. It is an annual user fee and can only be removed once an application to abandon the meter has been processed by Baltimore County Department of Permits, Approvals and Inspections.

Rates

Rates vary based on the property type.
