What is the Stormwater fee on my bill for and how was it determined?

CCWA developed a StormWater Management Utility at the request of the Clayton County Board of Commissioners and the six cities of Clayton County to address stormwater pollution, flooding and maintenance of the stormwater infrastructure. This monthly fee began in 2007 shortly before CCWA took responsibility for all stormwater related management and maintenance activities from the County and Cities. The fee is based on the amount of imperious surface on a property (rooftops, parking lots, driveways, etc.) that does not allow rainfall to penetrate into the ground, but instead causes it to runoff into our streams and rivers. Single family residential properties are billed a flat rate of $3.75 per month, while non-residential properties are billed based on the actual amount of impervious surface on their property. Please refer to the Stormwater Section of our web site for more information about this fee.
