Managing our Stormwater

Why is Managing Stormwater Important? 

  • Stormwater must be managed to protect our drinking water supplies, prevent flooding and preserve natural resources.


State Requirements for Stormwater Management

  • Brandon has reached a population of 11,048 and we are now required to obtain a MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer systems) permit in order to meeting federal standards.  


Paying for Stormwater Management

  • The City collects utility fees to pay for the operations and improvements of its infrastructure. Similarly, the City will implement a stormwater utility fee that is based on a property’s contribution to stormwater runoff. In other words, the fee will be based on total property area and the amount of impervious areas that prevent rainfall or snowmelt from soaking into the ground.
