Stormwater Utility Fee Comparison

A Comparison of Stormwater Utility Fees

Cities that had more than 100,000 residents in 1990 were the first cities required to implement stormwater management programs. In North Carolina these cities, referred to as Phase I, were Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham, Winston-Salem, and Fayetteville. Smaller cities are now being brought in as a second phase. The charts below compare the stormwater utility fees North Carolina’s Phase I cities use to pay for their stormwater management program.

For more information on the data in these charts, as well as similar information for select Phase II communities, please refer to A Study of Stormwater Utility Fees in Select North Carolina Municipalities (PDF).
