Water Talk: Understanding Stormwater Fees

The first step in tackling the complicated world of stormwater fees is to educate yourself. Start with our latest cover story—it explains the stormwater crisis, and how the Philadelphia Water Department is confronting it head-on.

Next, attend the Academy of Natural Science’s GreenCity, Clean Waters event on Monday. This program is designed for condo and co-op residents, staff and board members, and will explain the ins and outs of reducing rainwater runoff and the dreaded stormwater user fee.

Glen Abrams, PWD’s Watershed Planning Manager will guide you on your way to stormwater expertise.
