SSDCs cover the cost for new development to expand the City of Eugene’s stormwater infrastructure, such as, installing rain gardens and improving water flow capacity of creeks and other water courses throughout the community.
The city’s stormwater capital program reflects the goals of the Comprehensive Stormwater Management Plan and the city’s compliance with federal clean water regulations.
SSDCs improvement dollars are used for capacity enhancement projects that expand existing facilities and enhance water quality and natural resources. The funds are also used to create new capital projects which result in construction of a new facility or system.
The city’s Capital Improvement plan forecasts the city’s capital needs over a six-year period.
