Butler County Storm Water District

Frequently Asked Questions


Isn’t flooding in Butler County just a problem in certain areas of the County?

The fee you are required to pay only covers the cost of complying with the new unfunded EPA water quality guidelines. Flooding and drainage issues will not be addressed under the current operating plan. A plan that addresses flooding and drainage issues would be much more expensive to implement, and would result in a higher annual cost to property owners. If you want the Storm Water District to consider flooding and drainage related issues for your community, you need to contact your elected officials and convey that message to them.
