Water Quality Fees, Credits & Incentives

Water Quality Fees, Credits, & Incentives

The water quaity fee is the City of Chattanooga's stormwater utility. The fee is based on the impervious surface within a parcel. Impervious surfaces are those that do not allow rain water to pass through into the ground. 


Want to know what your annual fee is?

  • Start by finding your property on the map below. It will show you the total square footage of impervious area and provide you with an ERU (Equivalent Residential Unit). 
  • Next, multiply the ERU by $115.20 to get your annual water quality fee.
