Stormwater Engineering

Introduction

The Stormwater Engineering Division was created in 1996 to manage the stormwater utility and to implement other recommendations of the Stormwater Management Master Plan. Stormwater Utility fees are charged to all landowners based on impervious surfaces on each property. The resulting revenue supports system reconstruction projects, system maintenance, development review and pollution prevention measures.
