What is a stormwater ?

Stormwater is water coming from precipitation events like rain or snow/ice melt. Stormwater is dealt with in a couple of ways. One is by letting it soak into the ground. Two is by letting it evaporate. Both as mother nature intended. But as we build more and more cities, we are also building more hard/impervious surface. When stormwater falls onto your roof, driveway, or on the road, it becomes run-off. It has to be managed through a stormwater system similar to this picture by a network of catch-basins, manholes, and storm ponds to prevent flooding

Why do we need to manage stormwater?
As the city grows, we’re also building more impervious and hard surfaces. Hard and impervious surface will not allow stormwater to soak into the ground. Stormwater run-off needs to be managed to prevent flooding, protecting residents and their properties.

Where does my money go?
Revenue generated from stormwater utility will fund 100% of the cost of maintaining our existing stormwater infrastructure. The remainder of the fund will be put into capital reserves. Capital reserves will allow us to build infrastructure when we need it and give us access to matching government grant funding for capital projects.
