Is a stormwater utility charge legal?

Stormwater Utility Charges

Yes. Although it is at the discretion of individual councils and state governments across Australia, (some state governments need to make changes to an act for this to happen). It is a fair and equitable way to share the cost of this vital public service.

Most German cities have adopted an imperviousness or hard surface charge, specifically for fairness – the more you pave the more you pay. To increase water quality and decrease water quantity (i.e., flooding), nearly 3,000 councils in the USA and over 40 in Canada have embraced the charge to manage ever-increasing prices for maintenance and capital works.
