Financial Contribution for new consumers and additional over-design supplies, to apply where a property is not connected to the scheme and has a design capacity allocated to it but no corresponding financial contribution has been paid. The contribution to be levied is to be for no less than the design capacity allocated to the property, or a property that has previously paid a financial contribution and has been given a corresponding allocation now seeks an increased supply in excess of that allocation. Provided it is possible to supply the additional water, the contribution is to be levied on each unit approved above the allocation.

The base financial contribution shall be calculated by multiplying the Property Area by the Scheme Factor except where otherwise indicated (see below). Residential/lifestyle properties may attract an increased charge. The minimum charge shall be for a 2-unit supply. Financial Contributions levied will be in addition to any cost of additional capital works required to make the connection or provide the supply. Payment of the financial contribution is required prior to the supply being made. In each case the contribution and any entitlement created by it is to attach to the land.

In particular cases, financial contributions may be amended by resolution of the Rural Water Scheme Committee.

  • All properties connecting to a public water main shall complete the application form.
  • All costs associated with laying and making the connection, reinstating surfaces etc. shall be the responsibility of the applicant. This includes the costs associated with any required system upgrade.

Scheme Factor = (BV-OL) x 0.25) / SC) x 0.065 + GST
Where: BV = Book Value. OL = outstanding loans and SC = scheme capacity.

(i) For properties less than 30 ha
(ii) For the Richardson and Clydevale-Pomahaka Schemes the following contribution will respectively apply: The contribution shall be five times the current unit rate for the Richardson scheme and three times the current unit rate for the Clydevale-Pomahaka scheme per unit of additional supply.

Under provisions of the CDC Water Supply Bylaw, unauthorised use of water on rural schemes will be charged for at the estimated maximum unauthorised usage rate multiplied by the annual scheme unit charge, multiplied by the estimated period in years of unauthorised use (minimum 1 year). Additional to the estimated charge for water used, an administration charge of $281.25, plus the actual costs to remedy unauthorised fittings and of follow-up re-inspection, will also be payable by the offender.

Example: If a 2-unit restrictor is found drilled out to supply 18 units, typical charges will be:
16 (units stolen) x $166.40 (scheme unit charge) + $250 (admin) + GST = $3,349.26 + actual remedial and re- inspection costs.

The property owner at the time of subdivision shall be liable for all costs required to provide the minimum water allocation to each lot.

For a new single connection inside the scheme area, where the property has paid a previous financial contribution, or has been paying a half rate charge for more than the five previous years, the Financial Contribution is not required but the other costs shown are payable. Where the property has been paying a half rate charge for less than the five previous years, the Financial Contribution shown shall be reduced pro-rate i.e. discounted 20% per year of half rate payment.

The Financial Contribution and other costs shown are payable for new connections outside the Scheme area, and additional connections inside the Scheme area, where no previous financial contribution or half rate charge has been paid. Where intensification occurs, each self-contained habitable unit is deemed to be a separate connection for fees and rating purposes.

For commercial premises (including residential premises converting to commercial) and for extraordinary connections (outside the Scheme area) a metered connection will be installed, for which the applicant shall be charged Actual Cost additional to all other relevant fees and charges.
