    Storm Water Management Fee

    Prince William County’s storm water management program addresses four major tasks: drainage, water quality, erosion and pollution control, and flooding. Residential and nonresidential owners of developed property pay based on the amount of impervious area (rooftops paved areas etc.) on their property. Impervious areas contribute to an increase in storm water runoff that adds to the County’s drainage requirements for flood control and water protection.

    Protecting the Chesapeake Bay

    Prince William County’s Resource Protection Areas (RPAs) are the ‘last line of defense’ for the protection of water quality. These buffers stabilize shorelines and stream banks, filter pollutants, reduce volume of stormwater runoff and provide critical habitat for aquatic species and wildlife. Trees and shrubs in riparian buffers offer benefits to property owners as well by increasing property value, reducing erosion, reducing noise, improving air quality, increasing shoreline stability and providing shade in the summer and windbreaks in the winter.
