The new Richmond Department of Public Utilities Stormwater Management Utility Program, recently approved by Richmond City Council, will target local flooding problems and include preventive maintenance, repair and improvements to the City’s storm drain system. With this program, entire storm drain systems in large areas of the City will be systematically cleaned before serious problems can occur.  Funding for the new Stormwater Management Utility Program will come from a fee, which will apply to all developed properties in Richmond, including homes, businesses, and non-profit organizations. The collected funds will be dedicated specifically for stormwater systems needs.
