How much will I be charged?
That depends on the property type. There are three categories of fees. 1) Residential properties within the Urban Service Area, roughly the southern half of the city that is served by city water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer. 2) Residential properties outside the Urban Service Area that use the county ditch system as a conveyance before reaching the city stormwater system. 3) All other properties, including commercial, industrial, institutional, etc.
o Single-family, duplex, and townhome residential properties in the Urban Service Area pay $3 per month per residential unit
o Single-family, duplex, and townhome residential properties not in the Urban Service Area pay $2 per month per residential unit
o All other properties pay $21 per month per acre of impervious surface, which is defined as a constructed hard surface that prevents or retards the entry of water into the soil, and causes water to run off the surface in greater quantities and at an increased rate of flow than existed prior to development. Examples include rooftops, sidewalks, patios, driveways, parking lots, storage areas, and concrete, asphalt, or gravel roads.
