FIRE LINE FEES

Fire Line Fees Download

The expansion of fire service lines are an important safety issue for the entire community.  As there are public hydrants available in our residential communities, and equally important need for hydrants and sprinkler systems lie within the commercial/industrial areas being developed.  As such, Frederick Water would like to propose a change in the fee structure for the installation of the fire lines as follows:

SIZE      FEE         

2″       $7,450

4″      $10,380

6″      $14,410

8″       $18,900

10″     $26,760

12″     $30,000

In addition to the fee, any service would require the installation of a detector meter located within a vault adjacent to the right-of-way or property line as shown on the diagram attached.  The vault would be the responsibility of the developer/owner and would be subject to inspection by Frederick Water.  In addition, as now a backflow prevention device would need to be installed between the vault and the building as approved by the county building code department and Frederick Water.
