We are a tennat on a subdivided property. Commercial setting. Should the storm water utility charges be based on the percentage of impervious footprint related to the entire area..and each tenant pay their portion or is it standard to just divide equally?
Also what is the calculation to figure the monthly cost per sq. ft of impervious surface? parking,roof, and concrete pad areas are all treated the same? What about compacted clay or soil that is baren..no vegetation...is that considered impervious. Does the city abide strictly to all of this or are there case by case adjustments?
Desperate..Need to know...we are paying a fortune!!!!

What town / city? It can vary by local government. Your best bet is to give your local engineering department a call. They can walk you through it or point you to the part of the town's website that breaks this type of information out for you. Again, it will vary depending on where you are located.

Technically, the building owner is responsible for this. If s/he so chooses, it can be part of the rent. Unfortunately if s/he doesn't use the utility and the company that does doesn't look, that storm water fee can just be one of those overlooked parts of the bill.

Raleigh North Carolina. We are splitting approx $1,600.00 per month with another tenant. This seems absurd. Does anyone know the formula that city of Raleigh uses to figure this.
I will try the engineering department.
Thanks for the help.
