What is the stormwater fee and why do we have one?

State and federal governments have passed new regulations that require Clemmons to take steps to reduce polluted stormwater runoff. This is an unfunded mandate and adequate funding for the stormwater program is required by the state. The fee will also enable the Village to address some of the Village’s stormwater quantity problems.  The stormwater fee will be charged to all properties with impervious surfaces and is a reliable and equitable source of funding for the program.
