Prince William County Stormwater Fee

Prince William County, Virginia established a stormwater utility in 1994 to pay for the county's stormwater management plan.  Landowners of developed properties pay a fee based upon the amount of impervious surface on their property.  In 2014, the county assessed fees of $38.21/year for owners of single family homes, $28.69/year for owners of townhomes or apartments, and business owners are charged $18.56 per 1,000 sq. ft. of impervious area.  

The fees are used to construct, operate and maintain watershed management projects to reduce non-point source pollution, protect and restore streams and wetlands, and reduce flood risks.
