In April 2004 the City of St. Cloud implemented a Stormwater Utility fee to provide a dedicated funding source for new State & Federal regulations related to stormwater discharges into area waterways, including: ponds, wetlands, rivers & lakes. These new regulations required the City to implement measures to protect and improve the quality of surface waters.
The stormwater utility revenue is primarily used to pay for the cost of water quality education, street sweeping, and other activities directed at protecting surface water quality. These activities are mandated by the State of Minnesota, and benefit all properties in the City. Please contact our Water Department @ 320-255-7225 with any questions about this fee.
