  MEREDA's Morning Menu: Sustainable Stormwater Infrastructure = Sustainable Growth Perspectives on Stormwater Service Fee Programs and Credits  
     
  Join MEREDA for breakfast on November 10th at the DoubleTree Hotel in South Portland for a panel discussion that will focus on the City of Portland Stormwater Service Charge - why it is needed by the City and what measures property owners can take to qualify for credits. Participants will also learn what fees/credits other municipalities in Maine such as Bangor and Lewiston, and in other areas of the United States have implemented and/or are planning, and hear first-hand how property owners have successfully improved the quality of their stormwater runoff while reducing their stormwater service bills.

Stormwater utilities or service fees are often based on a property's impervious area and can become substantial for property owners with large building footprints and parking lots. But many municipalities offer credit programs that can reduce the amount a property owner has to pay, providing they implement and maintain stormwater management and pollution prevention systems that reduce the community's overall cost of meeting its Clean Water Act obligations.
