How Can I Reduce my Stormwater Fee?
The City’s Stormwater Credit Program gives incentives to implement effective stormwater management practices.
Credits are available in two ways: stormwater quality and stormwater quantity. The program offers customers a way to reduce their monthly stormwater utility fee by putting in place stormwater practices or tools that manage their property’s stormwater quality or quantity.
- Water Quality: Urban activities increase the potential for surface and groundwater pollution
- Water Quantity: Less land to absorb stormwater means an increase in the volume of stormwater and the rate at which it flows into the storm drain system
The Stormwater Credit system provides:
- Up to 50% credit (reduction) in your stormwater utility fee for management tools/practices that address stormwater quality
- 50% or 100% credit (reduction) in your stormwater utility fee for management tools/practices that address stormwater quantity
Note that maximum credits are cumulative and cannot exceed 100% credit.
