The Storm Sewer System Charge (SSSC) is an annual service charge that pays for the operation and maintenance of the City’s storm sewer system. It also funds programs to improve the quality of storm water runoff as required by the City’s federal storm water permit and local watershed districts.

The City of Saint Paul has established the policy in accordance with Admin. Code Chap. 81: Storm Sewer System Charge.
