Stormwater Utility Fee

The Stormwater Utility Fee provides funding for mandated federal and state stormwater programs including MS-4 permit requirements, as well as maintenance and operational cost, capital improvement projects and citywide mosquito control.

Assessment of the fee is based on the amount of impervious cover located on a parcel and is billed on an equivalent residential unit (ERU) basis; one (1) ERU is equivalent to 3,039 square feet of impervious area. Single-family residential parcels are billed for 1 ERU regardless of impervious cover.

The current stormwater utility rate is $7.50/month per ERU.
