The Stormwater Best Management Practices Program will provide a reimbursement to property owners that install stormwater best management practices that help to enhance the water quality of the stormwater runoff and/or decrease the amount of stormwater runoff that enters the stormwater drainage system.

With this program, the City will  reimburse 50% of the cost up to $2,000 to the property owners who meet the requirements of the program as listed in the key elements below. The reimbursement for approved work will be by direct payment to the property owner in the amount of the qualifying work.
The work must have been performed and completed between the dates of January 1, 2017, and June 30, 2023, to be eligible for the subsidy program.
