Navigating Your Stormwater Fees



When it rains, alleys and streets carry water away from our homes and yards and into storm drain pipe systems. All that water flowing into our drain systems also picks up and carries trash and pollutants right to our streams, our harbor and the Chesapeake Bay. Stormwater is the fastest growing source of water pollution.

Take these steps to reduce your stormwater management fees.


Assess: Some important questions to consider when evaluating your property:

1.) What is impervious surface?
       Physical structures i.e. Roofs of buildings, sheds, parking lots/parking spaces, driveways, any pavement, compacted gravel.          


2.) How much impervious surface do I have?
       Tip: Visual satellite photos will help you differentiate between permeable land (fee not  applicable)  on your property and impervious surfaces (fee applicable). Please visit Google Maps for a bird's eye view of your property. 


3.) Is there space on my property or a project?
       Tip: Identify spaces and infrastructure you are willing to modify for possible projects.
