How much is a stormwater utility fee going to cost me?

The utility fee is based on the amount of impervious surface (e.g. roof, driveway, walkway, and patio) your site has. For each 200 square feet of impervious surface the cost is $18.72.

The average impervious surface for a residential property in the city is 2,755 square feet; therefore the average cost is approximately $262 annually.
