How are Stormwater Compliance Fees calculated?

The Stormwater Compliance Fee considers a property’s impervious area which is the total area covered by materials such as asphalt, concrete, brick, stone and compacted surfaces which reduce infiltration of precipitation. The amount of impervious area on a property directly impacts how much stormwater runs off the property and enters the City’s stormwater and drainage system.
