Applying for Stormwater Quality Credits

What is the credit available for stormwater quality management tools/practices?

Property owners can apply for a credit of up to 50% of their stormwater utility fee if they are using stormwater quality management tools (often referred to as "Best Management Practices" or "BMPs").

Stormwater quality management tools (BMPs) can include:

Wet ponds

Manufactured underground filters

Rain gardens

Dry ponds

Vegetated swales

Infiltration trenches

Underground storage

Sand filters

Soak away pits

Wet or dry swales

Filter strips

Pervious pavers

Green roof

Dry wells


Want to apply for stormwater quality credits? Here’s the information you need:

Due to the difficulty of conducting field inspections of Best Management Practices during the winter, the City will not be accepting new stormwater credit applications after December 31, 2018.  The application period will re-open in Spring 2019.  If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Schumerth at 612-673-2226.
