Stormwater waiver bill passes

February 16, 2016


SB 468 (Wagner) unanimously passed the Senate. As amended, SB 468 allows localities imposing stormwater utility fees to establish public-private partnership programs with financial incentives to reward property owners for undertaking programs on their own to effectively manage and treat stormwater. Senator Frank Wagner also inserted an amendment into the bill requiring localities to exempt from stormwater utility fees “land owned by a railroad and located within it right-of-way.” As introduced, SB 468 would have required local governments with stormwater utility fees to waive charges to property owners who are able to permanently retain stormwater on site.
