    RESOLUTION NUMBER XX-04

    Stormwater Utility Credits

    WHEREAS, the Common Council has established a Stormwater Utility within the City of Racine; and WHEREAS, the Stormwater Utility establishes three rate charges; and WHEREAS, it is necessary to set credits available to offset those charges, NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that effective January 1, 2005, the Commissioner of Public Works has established a system of stormwater credits for non- residential properties. The Commissioner of Public Works has established specified technical and procedural criteria by which credits will be granted. Copies of such technical and procedural criteria will be maintained by and available from the Commissioner of Public Works. To be eligible for credits established herein, applicants must meet one or more of the conditions described below.

    1. Properties with impervious surface areas draining directly into designated waters (riparian) or a portion of properties that drain directly to designated waters without entering the City’s stormwater system will be eligible for up to a 40 percent reduction in the EC stormwater fee. Designated waters include: Lake Michigan, Root River and Pike River.

    2. Properties which are internally drained which discharge no water to the City’s

    stormwater system will be eligible for up to a 45 percent reduction in the EC stormwater fee.

    3. Properties which are not covered by the Post Construction Runoff Ordinance which

    take mitigating steps to improve the quality of stormwater discharge by implementing best management practices that reduce annual total suspended solids loading from existing development by 40 % or more and are designed and/or implemented in accordance with current Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources guidelines and have maintenance agreements in place with the City of Racine for the best management practice as applicable, will be eligible for a 5 percent reduction in the EC stormwater charge for that portion of the impervious area treated by best management practices.

    4. Properties which have total impervious areas of less than 20 percent of the entire

    parcel will be eligible for a credit of up to a 40 percent reduction in the EC stormwater fee applicable to those impervious areas that are not directly connected to the drainage system and sheet flow across a natural buffer area of at least 100 feet in length.

  • NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that effective January 1, 2005, the Commissioner of Public Works has established a stormwater rebate. A stormwater rebate is available to a non-residential property owner who constructs on-site stormwater detention which results in a reduction in size or number of stormwater facilities to be constructed by the City of Racine in conjunction with the development. The rebate will be calculated by taking the difference in projected cost of the stormwater facilities without on-site detention with the actual cost of the stormwater facilities incurred by the City due to the construction of on-site detention. The total rebate amount shall not be greater than the cost of the on-site stormwater detention facilities and shall not include the cost of on-site storm sewers necessary to convey flows to the on-site stormwater detention facility or City facilities. Passed and adopted by the Common Council this _____ day of _________________, 2004. APPROVED: __________________________________ Mayor Countersigned/Certified ______________________________________ City Clerk
