A house connection (HC) is a lateral line constructed from a WSSC water and/or sewer main normally located in the street and that goes to the applicant’s property line. To recover house connection construction costs, the WSSC charges service applicants a fixed rate that is dependent on size and category of the connection. WSSC allows a deferred or an installment payment only for owner occupied dwellings with a failed well and/or septic system certified by the Health Department. Once the owner makes an application for service and the house connection is installed, then the deferred charges together with interest are assessed.
