Stormwater Credits

What is a Stormwater Service Fee Credit?

As part of the MWA’s Stormwater Management Program, a stormwater credit is offered to help property owners reduce their stormwater utility bills. The purpose of these credits is to recognize actions and systems that reduce the burden and/or cost of MWA’s Stormwater Management Program and infrastructure and provide an incentive for property owners to properly manage their stormwater system(s) as good stewards of our natural resources. 

In order to receive a Stormwater Credit from the MWA a property must meet specific  criteria that demonstrate compliance with the Georgia Stormwater Management Manual, such as maintaining stormwater management features (e.g., detention ponds, rain gardens) on the property that help to reduce the stormwater runoff or improve water quality. Qualifying properties that submit the proper documentation are eligible for up to a 50% maximum reduction in stormwater utility fees. 

Participation in stormwater education programs through schools, churches, or other entities also qualifies for stormwater credits. Stormwater stewardship activities by schools, churches or other organizations -- such as no direct discharges, septic tank management, or a minimal amount of impervious surface on site (less than 10%) -- are welcomed for consideration of credits as well.
