How you can reduce your stormwater fee?
The City’s Stormwater Credit Program gives people incentives to implement effective stormwater management practices on their properties.
Stormwater is managed 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 percent credit (reduction) in your stormwater utility fee for management tools/practices that address stormwater quality
- 50 percent or 100 percent 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 percent credit.
