Any property with a roof, driveway or other impervious surface can contribute to storm water issues, including flooding, erosion and poor water quality. In order to effectively manage stormwater, SD1 charges a stormwater service fee to any such property within our service area boundary. Areas that don’t have storm sewer pipes still benefit from SD1’s stormwater services. For example, SD1 regulates what goes down public stormwater pipes to keep pollution out of the streams that customers rely on for drinking water and recreation. The stormwater fee supports this work.
Stormwater runoff is rain water we receive during heavy downpours that needs to be managed throughout the region. Sidewalks, driveways, rooftops, parking lots and streets are all impervious surfaces that prohibit rain and snow melt from soaking into the ground, leading to stormwater runoff. SD1 works with community leaders to manage flooding, erosion and water pollution caused by stormwater runoff.
