Being done in lots of communities.<quoted text>
Watched this morning's news. The City's Water Department is now charging businesses for rainwater spilling off their building's roofs and into Storm Sewers.
Like one businesswoman complained to the camera "If my building wasn't here, where would the rainwater go? Into the Storm Sewer!
Tax Nature!" , she laughed. She is now being charged $162.96 per month for Rain Discharge.
This is a great way to promote businesses moving into Detroit.
Storm sewer systems & their maintenance are not free & someone has to pay for them.
