Stormwater is gaining recognition as an integral component of our natural resource management agenda. This resource needs to be protected and reused to enable economic, environmental and social resilience that helps to improve the quality of life in our communities. Municipalities are striving to enhance stormwater management and develop dedicated funding.
Over the past two decades, Black & Veatch Management Consulting, LLC (Black & Veatch) has been a consistent voice in shaping and sharing information on enhanced stormwater management planning, best practices and funding. Our 2021 report presents our analysis of information gathered from utility leaders on stormwater management priorities, rate structure, billing, credit program practices and average monthly residential stormwater charges.
