Residential and commercial property owners who install stormwater management techniques may be eligible to reduce their Water Quality Protection Charge (WQPC) by up to 50 percent. The credit is meant to help reduce stormwater pollution, and the amount of the credit is based on the number of gallons of stormwater diverted.
Applications to receive a credit in the 2013 tax year are due by September 30 and by October 31 for the 2014 tax year. Approved credits are valid for three years.
Eligible techniques include rain gardens, dry wells, green roofs, permeable pavement, conservation landscaping, rain barrels/cisterns, dry or wet ponds, sand filters, swales, infiltration trenches and underground stormwater storage.
