As part of our continued outreach regarding the proposed stormwater fee submitted to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC), PWSA staff met with several stakeholder groups in May to share details about the fee implementation and gather suggestions.
We met with representatives from the Building Owners & Managers Association of Pittsburgh (BOMA Pittsburgh) on May 4 and representatives from NAIOP Pittsburgh on May 11. On May 20, we hosted a meeting of our Stormwater Advisory Group (SWAG), which includes representatives from community organizations, environmental groups, universities, and businesses.
During all three meetings, we shared specific examples of how the proposed stormwater fee and rate changes would impact properties with varying levels of impervious surface area and drinking water usage. BOMA Pittsburgh and NAIOP Pittsburgh shared ideas for PWSA’s direct outreach to their members, while SWAG members recommended ways for PWSA to inform and engage other stakeholder groups. We thank BOMA Pittsburgh, NAIOP Pittsburgh, and SWAG for their continued involvement in our stormwater fee implementation process and their valuable feedback.
