Why don’t developer assessments cover the sewer fee increases?

State regulations only allow connection fees for new construction to be used to increase capacity in the collection and treatment systems proportionate to the impact caused by the new development. Connection fees for new development may not be used to subsidize current usage or pay for treatment plant improvements needed to meet new regulatory requirements.
