Stormwater Mitigation Program

PDF Documents and Forms

The City recognizes the benefits provided by privately maintained stormwater mitigation facilities and wishes to encourage property owners to reduce or eliminate the property’s burden on the City system. Properties supporting private stormwater mitigation facilities should be credited for the public benefits they provide. The City’s Stormwater Mitigation Credit Policy adopted on February 1, 2018, by Resolution 2018-94 provides the eligibility requirements, conditions, and credit. Accordingly, the charges based on the number of ESU otherwise attributable to such property may be adjusted by a Mitigation Credit determined in accordance with the Stormwater Mitigation Credit Policy. No Mitigation Credit shall exceed the amount of the Tax Parcel's Stormwater Charge. The Mitigation Guidelines highlight the credits available, and describe the conditions and eligibility requirements.
