Rebuild Houston - Calculate Drainage Fee

posted May 4, 2011, 11:07 AM by Memorial Super Neighborhood   [ updated May 8, 2011, 8:28 AM ]
Rebuild Houston has added a GIS system to locate your property and determine your drainage utility charge. If you click on “C.I.P. Project Map Viewer”, you will be able to see all the immediate past, present, and contemplated future CIP projects in the city (now with a useable legend).

Verifying your drainage utility charge:
Initial Notification Letters are being mailed sometime in May 2011. The letter will contain the city’s initial determination of the amount of your impervious surface. YOU MUST OBJECT WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE LETTER AND SUBMIT DOCUMENTATION SUPPORTING THE REDUCTION IN THE AMOUNT OF IMPERVIOUS SURFACE OR YOU ARE BARRED FROM CHALLENDING THIS DETERMINATION. The change must result in a minimum of the greater of 2% or $3.00 annual change (in other words, your reduction in impervious surface must result in at least a $3.00 annual savings).
