Stormwater Utility

On May 17, 2016, Council approved the establishment of a Stormwater Utility, a fund dedicated to the complete and proper management of the city’s stormwater system. Beginning November 1, 2016, residential customers will see a $2 Stormwater Utility line item on their monthly water/wastewater bills.
Non-residential customers in Surprise will also see the new fee on their November utility bill that was calculated based on the amount of impervious surface area on their site. Non-residential customers are encouraged to apply for the Stormwater Utility Non-residential Credit Program which may reduce the base fee.
