UPDATE 2013 09/30: Late Thursday, the Ohio Eighth District Court of Appeals ruled against the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District in finding that, among other things, the Sewer District does not have the authority under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 6119 or its Charter to enact and implement the Regional Stormwater Management Program under Title V, or to collect its stormwater fee.

As a result of this ruling, the District is suspending Regional Stormwater Management Program activities and the collection of stormwater fees for the program while the District pursues an appeal of the Courtís ruling to the Ohio Supreme Court.

Understanding stormwater, the issues, and solutions
What's the link between water flow and watersheds?

Some people say rain, other say rainwater, we say stormwater, and it's more than just rain. Stormwater is any rainwater or melting snow or ice that flows over the surface of the land to the nearest sewers, lake, or stream.

Hard surfaces like driveways, roofs, parking lots, and even some lawns pose two stormwater problems: Pollution (like litter, debris, oils, etc. which the stormwater carries to its destination untreated), and increased flow (the water flows quickly and in larger volumes, and that combination can increase flooding and erosion, the washing away of streambank soils).
