The Watershed Protection Department is in the process of developing a Stormwater Management Discount for both residential and commercial properties. The discount would be for stormwater controls that exceed the legal requirements for development. Find out more about the proposed discount program.
In addition, if you have an uncovered wooden deck and an unpaved portion of your driveways, we may be able to lower your impervious cover, which will in turn lower your bill. If you have these features, please call 512-494-9400 and ask about an administrative review of your drainage charge.
From October 2015 to October 2016, residents in single-family homes received a discount if their charge was above $9.80. This discount was meant to help phase in revisions to the drainage charge and expired in October 2016. There's more information on the single-family discount web page.
