Abstract: In response to financial pressure on the City's general fund and the EPA's storm water regulations, Salt Lake City went through the process of developing and implementing a storm water utility. Key elements to this process were: (1) a citizen committee to develop rates and fee structure, (2) an aggressive public relations program, (3) development of a GIS parcel map, and (4) assistance of a knowledgeable consultant. Each of these elements will be discussed in this paper.
