Stormwater Credits


The city of Richmond offers non-residential customers the opportunity to apply for up to 50 percent off their stormwater utility bill. Examples of low impact development building techniques that non-residential customers can implement to receive credits include pervious pavers, bioretention drains, and rain gardens.


The city now offers residential stormwater utility customers the opportunity to receive credits for implementing techniques on their property that reduce the quantity and /or improve the quality of polluted stormwater runoff.

Residential properties may apply for partial credits up to 50 percent starting in December 2010. Credits will be applied retroactively. Some examples of low impact development techniques that residential customers can implement include rain barrels and rain gardens.

For more information about stormwater utility credits, visit our website, email the stormwater utility, or call 644-3000.


  1. It would be great if you could be more specific on your site about how to proceed with the improvements. I imagine more people would follow up if it didn't take an extra step to get the information. But what a great program!

  2. That information is coming. Meanwhile, rain gardens and rain barrels are a good start.
