The fee pays for regional facilities and improvements, which benefit all properties in Parker by accommodating runoff in major storm events. It also pays for routine maintenance of eligible drainage facilities, including your on-site detention ponds. Future commercial property owners will also be charged the stormwater utility fee each year, and will be required to implement onsite drainage facilities to ensure property owners downstream are not negatively impacted.
Policy guidelines in the Town of Parker Storm Drainage and Environmental Criteria Manual (SDECM) have been established to determine stormwater facilities that are eligible for Stormwater Utility maintenance assistance. Copies of the SDECM are available upon request at Town Hall.
