Stormwater utilities finance Lynchburg's clean water efforts
“Any developed property will contribute to the utility rather than just the tax base.”
Stormwater utilities are an equitable way to provide funding to clean up local water says Erin Hawkins, Water Quality Manager for Lynchburg, VA. We all generate polluted runoff so we should all contribute to clean the polluted stormwater. Michelle Kokolis from the James River Association tells homeowners that they can take action to reduce stormwater. Cleaning up polluted runoff provides positive economic impact and actually creates local jobs.
