Developing equitable stormwater user fee programs: best practice from the STEP program
About the Webinar
Stormwater user fees can provide dedicated, sustainable, and increased funding for traditionally underfunded stormwater services and infrastructure. As a result, municipalities in Canada are recognizing the benefits of adopting a user fee approach to fulfill their stormwater management needs and are increasingly adopting stormwater charges or user fees as their main source of funding. In this webinar, Dr. Victoria Kramkowski will walk through the rationale for implementing stormwater user fees and will guide attendees through the options, steps, and considerations required to develop a municipal stormwater user fee program.
