What will the fee be used for?
State and federal law require three major categories of activities be carried out by municipalities. The revenue for this fee will ensure the city is compliant with those laws. They include the following:
a) The administration, planning, analysis, installation, operation, maintenance, repair, and replacement of public storm water drainage systems.
b) The administration, planning, implementation, construction, and maintenance of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to reduce the introduction of sediment and other pollutants into local water resources.
c) All necessary activities to maintain compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit requirements established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including preparation, implementation, and management of a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).
