Funding for the Stormwater Management Program comes primarily from the Stormwater Utility. The Utility is based on equitable cost-sharing measures which allocate responsibility to users of the stormwater management system. The property's contribution to runoff is defined by impervious coverage per developed tract of land. Both commercial and non-commercial developments are charged a fee and includes for-profit and not-for-profit property owners.
Billable Equivalent Residential Unit Fees
Billable Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU) fees are currently $5 per ERU per month, equating to $60 per ERU annually. Each single-family dwelling unit is billed one ERU annually. Non-residential development is billed a multiple of ERUs, with approximately 3,952 square feet of impervious area equaling one ERU. These fees are billed on the annual County Property Tax Assessment.
