It is estimated that approximately $3,100,000 will be collected at the $80.00 rate that was proposed during the 2023 fiscal year.
ONLY be spent on stormwater service programs. These services include maintenance and repair to stormwater facilities, compliance with the City’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit and addressing and correcting the City’s flooding and water quality issues.
No. This is a city program and the money will only be spent on stormwater problems within the City Limits.
The ESU is a billing unit (similar to a kilowatt hour that is the billing unit used to measure electric consumption). In Pensacola, each ESU represents 2,998 square feet, which was proposed in the 2012 fiscal year, of impervious surface that is found on the property.
Single-family home sites are assessed based on the impervious area range that they are in. The residential ranges are:
Building Sq. Ft. 2023 Rate
Small: 100-1,100 = 0.44 ESUs $35.20
Small-Med: 1,100-1,600 = 0.68 ESUs $54.40
Medium: 1,601-2,500 = 1.00 ESUs $80.00
Large: 2,501-5,600 = 1.53 ESUS $122.40
Very Large: over 5,600 sq. ft. Calculated as a general parcel
In some cases, a reduction to the bill amount can be granted if the property has a privately maintained drainage facility in place. Some non-residential properties that were constructed after 1986 automatically receive a mitigation credit. Additional information on mitigation credits may be obtained by contacting the City’s Public Works Department (850 435-1755)
