What is the Stormwater Fee?

To fund the efforts that keep the Stormwater system fully operational, a Stormwater utility fee is collected from City of Lawrenceville property owners. This fee is used to replace old pipes, reduce pollution, monitor water quality, and maintain the Stormwater infrastructure. Much strategic planning and prioritization goes into decisions to allocate the funds received by the Stormwater utility. The funds exclusively support the continual upkeep of the system to protect and preserve our community.
