Stormwater Program Fee

Susquehanna Township has transitioned its stormwater program to the Susquehanna Township Authority (STA). Along with this transition, a stormwater management fee will be implemented to cover the cost of infrastructure repairs and federal mandates related to water quality (see MS4). The established fee will allow the STA to equitably distribute the costs of stormwater management services to properties within the community based upon the impervious surface on a property. The established fee uses tiers based on a range of impervious area (IA).  The majority of property owners will pay $34.80 or less per quarter.

The fee will be billed through the STA. For those who do not receive a sewer bill, they will begin to receive one for the stormwater fee in 2020. All revenue collected will be used solely for the administration, operation, management, and improvement of STA’s stormwater facilities and our local waterways.
