Stormwater Utility Credits
Stormwater Utility Credit Program The credit programs are now located in one manual: the Stormwater Utility Credit Program which contains the program in its entirety as fillable forms. The purpose of section 1 in this document is to provide general information about the stormwater utility, fee structure, and the "fee for service" based credit system. Section 2 describes general application requirements and an overview of the available credits. Finally sections 3 and 4 contain the Stormwater Conveyance System and Receiving Water credit applications (respectively).
The Stormwater Conveyance System Treatment and Peak Flow Credit Application and Instruction document also referred to as the SCS Credit application document houses the fillable credit application form and instructions on the application process. SCS credits are available for eligible Non Single Family Unit (NSFU) customers with structural BMPs that provide treatment and/or peak flow attenuation for designated and measured impervious surfaces. All structural BMPs must comply with City Stormwater Standards. Compliant BMPs that provide both treatment and peak flow attenuation are eligible for a credit of 59.02%. Complaint BMPs that provide treatment or flow attenuation are only eligible for a credit of 29.51% (or half of the full SCS credit). For more specific information about requirements, see the “City of Superior Stormwater Utility Credit Program.”
The Receiving Water Credit Application document also referred to as the RW Credit application document houses the fillable credit application form and instructions on the application process. A Receiving Water credit of 85.49% is available for eligible Non Single Family Unit NSFU customers whose excess runoff drains directly into a designated receiving water body without flowing in or through any portion of the City’s MS4. Designated receiving waters are Lake Superior, the Pokegema River, and the St. Louis River. For more specific information about requirements, see the “City of Superior Stormwater Utility Program.”
