Stormwater Fee

Goes to Full Rate

After Delay, Stormwater Fee to Go to Full Rate
After a year delay due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Township’s stormwater fee will increase in 2022.
Beginning in 2020, the General Authority of Cranberry Township imposed a stormwater utility fee to help offset the cost of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection mandates to manage the quantity and quality of stormwater. The rate for 2020 was $3 per equivalent residential unit, with plans to increase that number to $6 per ERU in 2021.
However, recognizing the economic impact COVID-19 had on residents, businesses and non-profits, the rate was reduced to $4 per ERU for 2021.
The full $6 rate will be implemented at the beginning of 2022.
