Why do I have to pay the stormwater fee when my property doesn’t drain to the stormwater system?

City ordinance says any property draining to the city stormwater system shall pay a stormwater fee. The stormwater system is defined very broadly and includes streets, drains, waterways, culverts, etc. Properties that do not drain to any part of the defined stormwater system will be exempted from the fee. More information is in the Stormwater Policy Manual.
