Stormwater Financing - Public Information Centre


Change is coming to the way the City of Windsor calculates stormwater costs, and a public information centre (PIC) is being held for those interested.

Currently, the sewer surcharge provides financing for both wastewater and stormwater services in Windsor. In 2021, City Council approved the Stormwater Financing Study recommendation to separate the sewer surcharge into two fees: wastewater and stormwater. This will improve the management and maintenance of our stormwater system to prevent flooding of homes, businesses, schools, and roads; and reduce pollutants from entering our waterways.

Starting in January 2025, the wastewater fee will still be based on your water usage, but the stormwater fee will now be based on the amount of impervious area (hard surfaces) on your property.

Drop in at the public information centre to learn about the following: 

  • Stormwater management in Windsor
  • Recommendations from the Stormwater Financing Study
  • Changes for non-residential and residential properties
  • Fee reductions through the credit program, and 
  • Next steps in the process!
