Storm Water Utility
The City of Brooklyn owns and operates numerous storm water management systems, which have been developed over many years. The City charges a storm water fee of $2.00 a month, which is responsible for creating revenue for updates and enhancements for storm water management. No public or private property will be exempt from storm water utility charges. The fee will be collected in the same manner as the city's water and recycling fee.
It is unlawful for any person to discharge wastewater into the city's storm water utility system. It is also unlawful for any person to maintain a connection or to use the City's Storm Water Utility System without paying the appropriate charges and fees.
