In 2009, the City of Lafayette identified necessary stormwater system improvements (PDF), expansion and drainage improvements. The improvements were prioritized according to need, impact of the problem, public benefit, and other relevant criteria. Through that rating system, the city identified the following stormwater capital projects in addition to outfall repairs.
Funding Stormwater capital improvement projects will be funded with revenue generated by the stormwater user fee. The stormwater program is a service that benefits all properties in the community by managing stormwater runoff from private property, roadways and other public areas. All properties contributing stormwater to the sewer conveyance system, including tax exempt properties, will be assessed a fee.
