Stormwater Remediation Fee Credit, Appeal, and Hardship Applications

Stormwater Remediation Fee Credit, Appeal, and Hardship Applications

Established on June 18, 2013, the purpose of the Watershed Protection and Restoration Fund (WPRF) is to provide financial assistance for the implementation of local stormwater management plans through stormwater management practices and stream and wetland restoration activities, as set forth in Section 4-201.1 of the Environment Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.

The WPRF is funded through the Stormwater Remediation Fee, which is a flat rate charged to all improved properties in Charles County, unless otherwise exempted.  If your property should be exempt from the fee, an appeal or hardship form should be completed as appropriate.  If you would like to receive up to 50% reduction of the rate, review the credit application below for qualifications, and complete as applicable.

The Fiscal Year 2016 rate is $35 per improved property.   The fee is listed as “WPRF” on the Property Tax Bills.  Credits to the fee are shown as “WPRF CR” on the Property Tax Bills.
