What is a 'stormwater utility' and how is it different from a stormwater management program?
A stormwater utility is a legally authorized "public enterprise fund", adopted by ordinance and is similar to the water and sewer utilities. It was established to finance the construction and/or reconstruction of portions of the storm water system in the City of Hutchinson.

The stormwater management program for the City of Hutchinson includes the review of hydrology studies for new development construction in the community and compliance based activities associated with EPA and State of Kansas stormwater regulations.
