When property owners make changes or improvements on their properties to reduce the amount of runoff affecting local streams and storm sewers, they may be eligible for a fee credit, or a reduction in what they are charged.
Actions like disconnecting downspouts, installing rain barrels, or planting rain gardens are some of the ways property owners can better control runoff on their property.
Our Regional Stormwater Management Program fee credits do have restrictions and qualifications. As with any stormwater-management-related yard improvements, we recommend you check with any local regulations before beginning projects like these to ensure you are aligned with specific requirements your city may have. If you have questions or would like to discuss your options, contact our Customer Service department and we can put you in contact with a member of our Watershed Programs team.
