A property with functioning on-site drainage facilities may receive a stormwater management system user fee credit upon the following conditions:

Condition

Credit

1.

Detention Systems – A parcel is eligible for a thirty percent (30%) credit from the user fee confirmed by the Director when the owner demonstrates that stormwater discharge rate (flow) from a detention system after development is less than or equal to the before development rate (flow) of the parcel for a 25-year, 24-hours storm event, which equates to 9.5 inches of rainfall within a 24 hour period as defined by the appropriate Water Management District. The property owner must provide certification by a Florida licensed professional engineer that these requirements are met.

 

 

30%

2.

Extended Detention System – A parcel is eligible for an additional credit up to twenty percent (20%) when the owner demonstrates that stormwater discharge rate (flow) from a detention system after development is less than the before development rate (flow) of the parcel for a 25-year, 24-hours storm event, which equates to 9.5 inches of rainfall within a 24 hour period as defined by the appropriate Water Management District. (Credit is proportional to the percentage of runoff rate reduction achieved with a minimum fifty percent (50%) reduction in runoff rate needed to achieve a ten percent (10%) credit.)

 

 

Up to 20%

3.

Retention Systems – A parcel is eligible for a fifty percent (50%) credit from the user fee confirmed by the Director when the owner demonstrates that stormwater runoff is retained from a 25-year, 24-hours storm event, which equates to 9.5 inches of rainfall within a 24 hour period as defined by the appropriate Water Management District. The property owner must provide certification by a Florida licensed professional engineer that these requirements are met.

 

50%

4.

Extended Retention Systems – A parcel is eligible for a credit of up to one hundred percent (100%) of the amount of the user fee confirmed by the Director to be the percentage of stormwater runoff from a 100-year, 24-hour stormwater event (12.3 inches of rainfall within a 24 hour period), which is retained on the property (credit is directly proportional to volume of runoff retained. Credit would be given after retention for the 25-year, 24-hour storm is achieved).

Up to 100%

5.

A property that does not contribute stormwater (i.e., no stormwater discharges from the property) to the utility and is not otherwise benefited (has no stormwater runoff-does not use the stormwater system as they contain and treat all of their stormwater) by the utility shall be allowed a credit of one hundred percent (100%).

100%

6.

Property which is designated and delineated as wetlands, wetlands under conservation easements, or designated conservation lands shall be allowed a credit of one-hundred percent (100%) effective October 1, 2011. Credits that are granted shall only be retroactive to the effective date of October 1, 2011, but retroactive credit shall not exceed one (1) year. Submittal of wetlands delineation report is required to receive credit.
