Stormwater runoff fee to increase DuPage Property Taxes?

DuPage County officials have said infrastructure improvements are needed to control stormwater runoff.  Right now, money for those projects comes from property taxes. If adopted, a stormwater utility fee would charge property owners based on use.

Those who have more stormwater leaving their land would pay a higher fee. Anyone with land producing less stormwater runoff would pay a lower fee . Enacting a fee would make it possible to have charges for stormwater projects removed from the property tax bill.
