Stormwater Management administers the stormwater utility fee. These funds are exclusively dedicated for managing and maintaining Pasco County’s stormwater management programs, enabling better services to citizens with issues concerning drainage problems and flooding conditions.
Through funds provided by the utility, Stormwater Management collects and maintains data on stormwater structures such as curb inlets, piping, ditches and ponds. This data is maintained in a Geographic Information System (GIS), a computer-based database management system for efficient storage and retrieval of data. This data is used for maintenance planning and in developing new stormwater runoff models for the various watersheds.
The stormwater utility fee enables the county to meet both state and national requirements for preventing stormwater pollution and protecting the quality of our water.
