Stormwater Utility (SW Utility) user fee credits are made available to private and public entities that undertake specific stormwater management activities to reduce their impact/demand on the City of Brunswick (City) Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) and the associated costs that would otherwise be expended by the City SWMP. If a customer enacts a specific credit activity that is approved by the City, then the customer will receive a credit on their annual stormwater user fee bill. Credits will be periodically reviewed by the City for compliance with the applicable standards in the City of Brunswick SW Utility Credit Manual (the Manual). Credits are given for both structural and non-structural stormwater management activities and include, but are not limited to, the following: detention ponds, stormwater controls, best management practices (BMPs), education programs, storm water runoff infiltration, watershed stewardship and other approved activities as determined/defined by the City.
The Manual outlines the criteria and procedures for the City of Brunswick SW Utility customers to secure and maintain a stormwater user fee credit(s) for their property/customer account. An approved SW Utility user fee credit will result in a reduction of the customer’s annual stormwater user fee charge. Implementation of the credit activities by the customer should reduce the impact of stormwater runoff from the subject property on the City’s stormwater management system, and corresponding cost to the City to provide SWMP services to that customer. The credit is only applicable for City approved stormwater BMPs, activities and/or programs that are properly designed, constructed (or implemented) and maintained in accordance with this Manual.
