Credits on stormwater fees

The City of Minneapolis offers credits on monthly stormwater fees for commercial property owners who install and maintain eligible Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) on their property. A BMP is a structural control meant to prevent or reduce the discharge of pollution to our waters. These credits are based on how much stormwater from impervious areas on the property are treated with the BMP(s) or by preventing stormwater discharge from the property for certain sized rain events. With properly functioning, eligible stormwater BMPs, properties can receive up to a 100% credit on their monthly stormwater fee.
