Stormwater Utility Feasibility Study

As part of the City’s exploration of the potential for a stormwater utility, the City completed a stormwater utility feasibility study.

Stormwater Utility Feasibility Study

With six urban impaired streams, there is a lot of stormwater-related work to be done in Bangor. Several years ago, the City began looking into the best way or ways to fund that work. One possibility that has worked in some other communities is a stormwater utility district.

A utility district involves charging a fee to property owners, similar to a water or sewer bill. The fee is generally based on the amount of impervious surface on the property. The money collected goes towards stormwater improvements, including those called for by watershed management plans and the City’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit.

Through a grant provided by the Department of Environmental Protection, the City of Bangor completed a study to determine whether a stormwater utility district would be feasible for Bangor.

For the full stormwater utility feasibility study as submitted to the Department of Environmental Protection on July 29, 2011, see below.
