Any property with a roof, driveway or other impervious surface can contribute to storm water issues, including flooding, erosion and poor water quality. In order to effectively manage storm water, SD1 charges a storm water service fee to any such property within our service area boundary. Areas that don’t have storm sewer pipes still benefit from SD1’s storm water services. For example, SD1 regulates what goes down public storm water pipes to keep pollution out of the streams that customers rely on for drinking water and recreation. The storm water fee supports this work.
SD1 is responsible for hundreds of miles of publicly owned storm sewers (closed-pipe systems) and thousands of associated storm water structures. Cities and counties are responsible for roadside ditches, culverts, curb and gutter systems and the maintenance of storm catch basin grates. Property owners are responsible for storm water features that convey storm water solely from private property.

Storm water runoff is rain water we receive during heavy downpours that needs to be managed throughout the region. Sidewalks, driveways, rooftops, parking lots and streets are all impervious surfaces that prohibit rain and snow melt from soaking into the ground, leading to storm water runoff. SD1 works with community leaders to manage flooding, erosion and water pollution caused by storm water runoff.
