The charge is a service fee, not a tax. However, to save administrative costs, it will be billed annually on the property tax bill and collected by the tax collector.

This is a question for your tax adviser. However, generally a stormwater charge against your residence is not a valid income tax deduction. However, if you own rental property or a business, the stormwater charge may be deductible when computing your income taxes. Please contact your accountant or income tax preparer for information regarding your specific situation.
Like property taxes, stormwater charges are billed to property owners only; each property owner or landlord will have to determine how the tenant should share in the stormwater charge costs.
An ERU is a unit of measure which serves as an index to compare the runoff generated by different size properties with different amounts of impervious surface. Impervious surface is any surface which does not allow water to pass through to the soil. Rooftops, driveways, parking lots and streets are familiar examples of impervious surface.
The equivalent residential unit in the city for the purpose of service charge ratemaking has been determined through engineering analysis to be a gross area of 11,000 square feet and a coefficient of runoff of 0.30.
Because the hydrologic response of all detached single-family residential properties is substantially similar to this equivalent unit definitions, they shall be billed for one equivalent residential unit.
All residents benefit when stormwater system improvements are made:
