The Riverton City Storm Water Fee was adopted in 2010 to fund programs necessary to comply with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit resulting from The Federal Clean Water Act of 1972.  

The MS4 Permit requires municipalities to protect streams, rivers, lakes, and subsurface water resources in their jurisdictions, from polluted storm water.  Protecting water bodies require dedicated personnel, equipment and continual management of stormwater protection programs. 

Many cities in Utah and across the nation have implemented a Storm Water Fee.  Riverton City has also found it necessary to implement a stormwater fee in order to meet the demands of the MS4 Permit.  Property owners are welcome to request a copy of the permit and you can also find it by searching the web for "Utah MS4 Permit".

The Storm Drain Fee is a user fee that is based on a properties use of public flood and water quality control infrastructure and the properties environmental pollution impacts.  The long-term impact calculations are a function of a properties impervious surface area, runoff volume, use of public drainage systems in roadways, and the site-specific pollution impacts.   In other words, each property's fee is based on runoff retained and detained relative to 100 year 24hour storm event, volumes drained to the municipal storm drain system, the daily traffic to and from the property and the pollution risk to State and City regulated surface and subsurface water resources.   This approach is intended achieve UPDES Storm Drain Fee equality and encourage and reward property owners choosing to invest in flood and water quality system infrastructure that reduces impacts to City storm drain systems and to water resources.
