Contributions in aid of construction charges
EPCOR collects Contributions in Aid of Construction ("CIAC") charges when we receive applications from developers or new customers applying to become part of the French Creek water utility. CIAC charges are one-time charges collected to cover the costs incurred by the utility to provide water service to additional units that utilize, or may utilize, waterworks capacity in the future. We collect these charges in accordance with Schedule B of our
Water Tariff (No. 5).
