Don't most big cities charge busineses a runoff tax based on square footage of their roofs? This is why retention ponds became popular. Taxing residential properties, on the other hand, sounds ridiculous.

Thankfully they aren't taxing us yet, the tentacles of Agenda 21 haven't reached this far.

The difference here is that more is being taxed, and at far higher rates.

Interesting! Charging by square footage would be a clever ripoff unless the roof is flat or nearly flat. A sloped roof should be measured and taxed based on the square footage of the foot print of the roof.
Rain from my roof goes from roof to gutters to downspouts to underground pipes to the street where it goes to the sewer, just like a business.
They want to reduce the water in the sewer.

Now, most of the problems which this is trying to solve are caused by farm fertilizer runoff, which is almost never addressed.

Kasich got smoked a few weeks ago when he blamed Detroit sewers for the Lake Erie algal blooms.

Not true, its caused by farms.

They won't really do anything with the money other than hire more bureaucrats, the problem will still exist, and taxes will get raised again.

You get taxed by the flush in MD as well...

Large parking lots, too. That's why you see ponds in front of large office buildings and apartment complexes...they aren't for aesthetics, they were forced upon the contractors at considerable expense.
