Extension and Expansion
System development charges provide a source of revenue to fund the extension and expansion of the utility system necessitated by new growth and development. The Board of Supervisors specifically finds that the utility system benefits all residents and businesses within the Toho service area and therefore system development charges shall be imposed on all new development.
It is fair and reasonable to require future growth, as represented by development, to contribute its fair share to the cost of improvements and additions to the utility system that are required to accommodate the impact generated by such growth.

System Development Charges as of January 18, 2023
Toho Water Authority (Toho) has implemented new System Development Charges (SDCs) as of January 18, 2023.
Previous SDC fees had been in place since June 27, 2012. In consideration of this and the recent merger with St. Cloud Utilities, a comprehensive water and wastewater SDC study was conducted to determine the SDC schedule required to support infrastructure improvements associated with system wide capacity needs. Along with the updated rates, relevant Toho policies and procedures governing the administration of SDCs and collection of fees were also reviewed. A significant change in the SDC policy is a shift to a meter size basis for meters 2-inches and smaller. Additionally, this change effectively consolidates fees, policies, and procedures for Toho, St. Cloud, and Sunbridge and eliminates the prior use-based fee schedule in this meter size range.
- For projects that were assessed prior to 1/18/2023 but the assessment fees were not paid prior to this date, a new assessment will be required using the new SDC fee schedule.
- If the assessment fees were paid prior to 1/18/2023, no additional assessment is necessary unless there have been changes to the project requiring additional meters, buildings, etc. If there have been changes, then a new assessment will be required using the new SDC fee schedule.
- For projects assessed after 1/18/2023, the new SDC fee schedule will be used to calculate the assessment.
