  • Trunk Area Charges: As development occurs within the City of Carver, planning for the extension of the city’s sanitary sewer and watermain utility system is important. Trunk area charges proactively provide a means to distribute a major trunk utility infrastructure expansion cost evenly to the properties that will directly benefit from the expansion, paid back over time as the area develops.
