What are the current stormwater monthly rates and fees?

The stormwater fee billed to landowners is based on the land use of the property and its location within the City. The land use provides an estimate of the amount of stormwater runoff generated by a given property, which is proportional to the fee that is charged. Developed properties within the Northwest Area are charged different rates than developed properties located in the storm-sewered areas in the remainder of the City. Parcels that are charged on a per-acre basis have their billable acreage reduced by the area of any mapped wetlands on the property.
