What the Utility Pays For:
A storm water utility, like other utilities, provides a service to the public, supported by charging fees to its customers.
Storm water utility fees operate and maintain the existing system and may be able to finance capital improvements. User charges proivde a consistent, predictable, long-term revenue source.
Items addressed in the storm water management plan (effectively "unfunded mandates") include:
|•||Maintenance of Existing System
- pipes, catch basins, manholdes, detention ponds, outfalls, headwalls, culverts, bridges
More specifically, this fund will go toward reducing infiltration in the existing storm sewers and create separate sewers for areas that are still combined. By doing this, basement floodings and backups can be reduced.
