  • The City only accepts rain gardens and pervious pavement BMPs for the residential property credit.
  • Credits are based on how much stormwater on the property is treated with the BMP(s).
  • With properly functioning, eligible stormwater BMPs properties can receive up to a 50% credit on their monthly stormwater fee.
