Part of: Water Resources Planning and Management: Saving a Threatened Resource?In Search of Solutions


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.
