Flooding poses a major threat to property within the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) Service District. Within this area, erosion also threatens property, water quality, wildlife, and terrestrial habitats. The Stormwater Management Code was developed to counteract and prevent future problems associated with poor stormwater management, and this code is applicable to all parcels within the NEORSD Service District.

Property owners are charged stormwater fees based on the amount of impervious area on their property. NEORSD offers stormwater fee credits for both residential and non-residential properties incorporating best mangement practices that reduce the volume of and/or improve the quality of stormwater leaving the property.

Individual property owners may be eligible for the Individual Residential Property Credit if the account holder owns, operates, and maintains an approved stormwater control measure (SCM).  Account holders must follow certain construction and maintenance guidelines as well as provide completed applications and supporting documentation.  For more information, please see the fact sheet below and the NEORSD Individual Residential Property Credit Manual.


Stormwater fees are charged to property owners based on the amount of impervious area on the property. Some of this funding from stormwater fees is placed into a community cost-share account to provide funding to assist NEORSD member communities in the implementation and completion of District-approved projects.
