Control to the maximum extent practicable the discharge of pollutants from our municipal storm sewer system associated with storm water runoff & illicit discharges, including spills & illegal dumping, as specifically described in a Storm Water Quality Management Program Plan. Phase II Storm Water Permit Mountain Island Lake
Storm Water Permits (Background) 1987 amendment to the Clean Water Act Authority delegated to N.C. Phase I Permit issued to City of Charlotte in November 1993.

Funding Strategy Funding Strategy Effective July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2014 Objectives: 1. Distribute costs equitably among those entities benefiting from services. 2. Consistently distribute costs as the program changes and annexations occur. 3. Incorporate components of the storm water billing system where applicable, including major and minor system contributions and increasing costs associated with increasing impervious area. 4. Incorporate a measure of the level of effort necessary to protect the surface water resources within the different jurisdictions when calculating shared program costs.
Funding Strategy Components: 1.Hourly Billing Rate a.Recovers salary & fringe costs. b.Operating & overhead costs are paid 100% by County, which equates to a subsidy of approximately 18%. 2.Shared Program Multipliers a.Only applied to County & Towns & not CMS & CPCC. b.Average of the % impervious area & % stream miles in each jurisdiction. Implementation: 1.Billing rates & multipliers change annually. 2.Work Plans are developed annually that include a budget for approval by co- permittees. 3.Co-Permittees are invoiced quarterly based on activities completed as described in Work Plan.
Funding Strategy 1.Hourly Billing Rate a.Uses same methodology as original Funding Strategy. b.New Supervisor added. c.FY15 Billing Rate = $51.28, which is a 3.96% increase from FY14 rate of $49.33. 2.Shared Program Multipliers a.Uses same methodology as original Funding Strategy. b.Does not apply to CMS or CPCC. c.Spread evenly over 5 years. 3.BMP Multipliers a.NEW - Based on the % of BMPs located in each jurisdiction. b.Does not apply to CMS or CPCC. c.Spread evenly over 5 years. Components: Implementation same as original Funding Strategy PROPOSED Funding Strategy Effective July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2019
