Without a stormwater service charge, the sewer charge would be $9.70 per HCF.
New Stormwater Service Charge - $6.30 per month for every 1,200 square feet of impervious area
Adjusted Sewer Charges - $8.20 per HCF
Clean Water Update
As the City continues to fund and implement projects related to the Department of Environmental Protection's mandate for Combined Sewer Overflow requirements, the stormwater rate will increase by $0.30 as of July 1, 2018. The new rate will be $6.30 perbillable unit. This is the first increase since this program started in January of 2016. The new rate is over $1.00 lower than the FY19 rate originally projected by the Sustainable Storm Water Funding Task Force when the Stormwater Service Charge was originally contemplated.
