I am renting an apartment or house. Do I have to pay this charge?

Multi-tenant residential properties are billed the minimum charge, the same as the single family residential fee, if the apartment unit is individually metered. If the apartment complex is master metered, then the customer of record for the master meter is billed a stormwater user fee for the entire property.

Individuals or businesses which rent property receive billing for the stormwater user fee if the water and/or sewer meter is in the renter's name. Property owners are obligated to pay stormwater user fees. It will be up to the individual property owner and the renter to decide how to handle the assessed fee.
