How can I reduce my fee?
There is no credit or reduction available for residential properties. For commercial properties, a credit can be obtained for three special circumstances:
1) Commercial properties which collect and retain stormwater in a permissive rainwater harvesting system (credits can be up to a 10% reduction).
2) Industrial properties which are already covered by an individual NPDES Industrial Stormwater Discharge Permit may qualify for a credit of up to 80%.
3) Commercial properties which retain and treat all of their runoff in an on-site system (using appropriate Best Management Practices and design as approved by the Department of Ecology) may qualify for a credit of up to 50%.
These credits will not be cumulative, and require an application process from the Stormwater Department. Please call 764-3792 for more information.
