Implementer § 137 — Municipal Stormwater Authority Fees

Home Implementer § 137 — Municipal Stormwater Authority Fees

The bill (1) modifies the current partial fee reduction that municipal stormwater authorities must provide to property owners by placing more requirements on its availability and (2) establishes an optional reduction. Unchanged by the bill, the reductions are in the form of a credit.

The bill (1) requires stormwater authorities to adopt a procedure for providing the fee reductions and (2) allows the DEEP commissioner to provide additional guidance to authorities to implement the fee reductions.

It also eliminates the requirement that stormwater authorities consider a property’s grand list valuation when setting stormwater fees. Existing law, unchanged by the bill, requires authorities to consider (1) the amount of impervious surface generating stormwater runoff and (2) land use types that result in higher or lower concentrations of stormwater pollution.

Lastly, the bill makes a minor change to specify that a stormwater authority’s stormwater management program must be to control both stormwater construction runoff and stormwater pollution, rather than at least one of the two.
