What is a stormwater utility fee?

The City has adopted a stormwater utility fee to provide an adequate and stable source of funding for the WRPP. A stormwater utility fee is a "fee for service" based on the amount of impervious surface area on a property (roofs, parking areas, sidewalks, etc.). This approach has several advantages. First, it fairly distributes the cost of the City’s stormwater services across all eligible properties based on the amount of impervious surface. Second, under State Law, the revenue from fees must be placed in a fund that can only be used for stormwater management activities; therefore establishing a dedicated funding source to accomplish the goals of the WRPP.
