I am renting a house. Do I have to pay this fee?

Multi-tenant residential properties are billed the same as the single family residential fee if the apartment unit is individually metered. If the apartment complex is master metered, then the customer of record for the master meter would be billed a Stormwater Utility Rate for the entire property. Individuals or businesses that rent a property will receive billing for the Stormwater Utility Rate if the water and/or sewer meter is in the renter’s name. Property owners are obligated to pay Stormwater Utility Rates It will be up to the individual property owner and the renter to decide how to handle the assessed fee.
