How much is the Stormwater Utility Rate?

Residential customers will pay a fee of $3 per month x 12 months = $36 per year.

Non-residential includes multi-family properties, offices, institutions, manufacturing/industrial facilities and churches. Hard surface area will be divided by the standard Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) of 2,500 square feet to determine the number of billing units on the property. The number of billing units then will be multiplied by the standard ERU rate of $3.

For example, the fee for a commercial property with a total hard surface area of 30,000 square feet will be $57.50 monthly, calculated as follows:

30,000 square feet ÷ 2,500 square feet/ERU = 12 billing units

12 billing units x $3 per month/ERU = $36 per month x 12 months = $432 per year.
