What does the stormwater fee cover?

The Stormwater Utility Fee funds the Comprehensive Stormwater Management Program (CSMP), which is mandated by state and federal law.  This includes things like the maintenance and repair of public ditches, stormwater pipe systems, and other drainage structures, water quality and flooding capital improvement projects, investigation and prevention of pollution discharges, and more. It’s important to note that with more than 2,700 miles of open ditch, nearly 1,100 miles of underground pipe, and nearly 37,000 drainage structures throughout the City, the Public Works Department must prioritize stormwater system maintenance and repair.
