How is the fee calculated?

A stormwater utility is a fee for service and all eligible properties are charged regardless of their tax status. Each eligible property is charged in 500 square foot increments of impervious surface. Per the City’s Stormwater Utility Ordinance impervious surface is defined as "area covered by hard surfaces such as structures, paving, compacted gravel, concrete, or other man-made features that prevent, restrict, or impede the downward passage of stormwater into the underlying soil." Unimproved property (defined as a property with less than 300 square feet of impervious cover) is not assessed a fee.
