Non-Residential Storm Water Fees are Now "Area Sensitive"

Monday, February 1, 2016

This month’s Wamego utility bills reflect a change for non-residential customers located within the City. Stormwater utility fees now are based on the size of the customer’s lot or tract. Since large tracts generate more stormwater runoff than small ones, it makes sense that a large tract owner should pay more than the owner of a small tract, however up until now, all non-residential customers were charged the same. Five rate categories were created, with the lowest being for lots under 10,000 square feet, set at $5.50 per month, whereas customers in the highest category, for all properties over 40,000 sq. ft. (nearly 1 acre) are charged $27.50 per month. Stormwater utility funds are applied to finance costly improvements, addressing drainage problems throughout the community.
