Selectboard Considers Stormwater Utility

In 2009, the Town received a $1.5 million federal grant to study water quality issues in Colchester. This four year study, known as the Integrated Water Resources Management Plan, included sixteen public meetings and produced several key recommendations. One of those recommendations was to create and adopt a Stormwater Utility as outlined in the Stormwater Utility Feasibility Study.

The Colchester Selectboard is considering the creation of a Stormwater Utility. A Stormwater Utility is very similar to a water or sewer utility. The utility takes care of the community’s stormwater system, and charges all properties a user fee based upon the amount of stormwater they create. The amount of stormwater created is based on how much impervious surface there is on a property.
