 Condominium & Townhome Units Rate Calculation

KID is required by State Law to assess against individual condominium units for their proportionate ownership share of the total acreage of the project as identified in the condo declaration or legal ownership documents. The exception to this would be where the common area is legally owned exclusively by the Homeowners’ Association, which would be assessed like any other property owner. The KID assessment for units developed and held under the enabling condominium legislation (Chapter 64.32 and 64.34) shall be: The Tier 1 Charge listed in the chart above, plus any applicable fees listed below, assessed against each condominium unit.

Other Charges when Applicable

In addition to the eleven tiered rates in Section 1, parcels shall be charged as follows:

  • Each parcel, including condominium units, will be charged the 2017 Capital Upgrade & Improvement Charge of $57.80 per parcel.
  • Each parcel will be charged the 2017 New Water Infrastructure and Supply Fund charge of $2.50 for each parcel and a proportional per acre charge of $4.54 an acre for parcels of one acre or less and $4.54 per irrigable acre for parcels greater than one acre.
  • Parcels with outstanding KID-financed Local Improvement District assessments will continue to be subject to such assessments.

Excess Water Charges

Excess water charge for non-pressurized systems will be as follows:  The annual allotment of water is 3.5 acre-feet of water per acre of assessed land.  For the first acre-foot or fraction thereof above allotment, the charge will be $30.86 per acre-foot ($90.00/3.5 = $25.71 X 120% = $30.86); for each acre-foot or fraction in excess of the first acre-foot above the allotment, the rate is $36.00 per acre-foot ($90/3.5 = $25.71 X 140% = $36.00).

Excess water charge for pressurized systems will be as follows:  The annual allotment of water is 3.5 acre-feet of water per acre of assessed land.  For the first acre-foot or fraction thereof above allotment, the charge will be $38.61 per acre-foot ($112.60/3.5 = $32.17 X 120% = $38.61); for each acre-foot or fraction in excess of the first acre-foot above the allotment, the rate is $45.04 per acre-foot ($112.60/3.5 = $32.17 X 140% = $45.04).

Pursuant to KID Policy 3.2-3 and consistent with the USBR/KID Contract, excess water charges, when multiple parcels receive water from a single measured delivery point, will be prorated among allotted parcels based on the number of acres in the allotment for each parcel.  The charges will be prorated in this manner even if the actual usage of excess water is not proportionate, unless the individual parcels are metered or individualized use is established by KID and the Watermaster.

Each potable water service in the Lorayne J service area will be charged a flat rate charge of $56.50 per month.
