How is the Stormwater Service Fee Calculated?

Impervious area (e.g., rooftops and paving) is the single most important factor influencing stormwater runoff. Urban and suburban development replaces natural ground surfaces with impervious surfaces, causing more stormwater to run off the land, rather than soak into the soil. Columbia County's stormwater service fee is based on the amount of impervious area on each property. Each 100 square feet of impervious area is billed $0.1775 per month.
