Storm Water

Storm water refers to the surface water that is the result of heavy rain or snowfall.  The water that results from heavy rain or snow melting must be drained properly in order to control flooding and prevent pollution, and the City is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the City's storm water drainage system. 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires Monroe, and over 400 other municipalities in Ohio, to improve storm water operations in order to prevent pollution and improve storm water quality; therefore, City Council passed an ordinance that allows for a storm water fee to be charged on the monthly utility bill in order to fund the City's storm water operations.
