The City Council finds, determines and declares that the stormwater system, which provides for the collection, treatment, storage, and disposal of stormwater, provides benefits and services to all property within the City limits. Such benefits include, but are not limited to: the provision of adequate systems of collection, conveyance, detention, treatment and release of stormwater; the reduction of hazards to property and life resulting from stormwater runoff; improvements in general health and welfare through reduction of undesirable stormwater conditions; and improvements to the water quality in the stormwater and surface water system and its receiving waters.
