Why do I have to pay a stormwater bill?

Rainwater falling on rooftops, pavement, and other impervious (solid, non-porous) surfaces runs off in greater quantity and contains more pollutants than rain falling on unimproved forests and grasslands. In developed areas, this runoff must be managed to keep it from causing flooding and to remove the pollutants before it is discharged into streams and rivers. The revenue generated from the Stormwater Utility Fee is used to maintain public ditches, piped systems, and other stormwater structures, and also to ensure that pollutants carried by stormwater runoff are removed before the runoff reaches our waterways.
