New Water Service (Tap) Connection
Requirements for New Connections to
Left Hand Water District
To obtain a new or upgraded tap or taps you must submit a Tap Availability Review Request Form along with the required fees, plans and legal description. If the request is for a commercial business or irrigation tap, the applicant must also fill out a Commercial Supplemental Form which assists the District in estimating the demand the tap will have on our system. District staff review all new requests for service and upgrades and provide a response that includes the procedure for obtaining service, an estimate of the costs to provide service, and any off-site improvements that may be necessary to serve the development.
Please note, fees associated with these services are due at the time of the request. See the District’s Rates & Fees page for the current fee schedule.
The District’s Board of Directors is the ultimate approval authority for all new taps. When ready, the Board reviews these taps during their regular monthly meetings normally held on the third Thursday of each month.
For properties outside the District, fee estimates, Subdivisions, multi-family developments, special circumstances and general questions please call the main office line and ask for someone in the Engineering department.
