About Stormwater

Jacksonville Stormwater Utility logoThe costs for improving Jacksonville's drainage system and satisfying federal and state requirements for treating stormwater runoff have increased dramatically. Recognizing these increased demands, the City of Jacksonville created the Jacksonville Stormwater Utility to directly manage the projects, programs and services associated with the city's stormwater management system.  It is established in Chapter 754 of Jacksonville Ordinance Code.
 

The stormwater fee generates the revenue needed maintain and improve our city's drainage system, and to meet state and federal requirements to protect our natural waterways, including our greatest asset: the St. Johns River.
