Furthermore, a Comprehensive MWA Stormwater Management Program/Utility offers the additional benefits of:

* Stormwater Utility User Fees, which are similar to water/sewer rates charged for these public services;

* Stormwater User Fees charged for the use of services, or impact of stormwater runoff on the drainage system;

* Note: over 70 communities have Stormwater Utilities similar to the MWA, which offers evidence of the successful implementation and management of these critical community services.
