StormWater Quality

Stormwater Quality Program of Bexar County

Bexar County’s Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program was established in 2008. The purpose of this program is to address the sources of stormwater discharges which adversely affect the quality of our county’s waters. The program utilizes permitting and inspections of construction sites, maintenance projects, public education and outreach, and illegal discharge detection to keep our rivers, lakes, and streams healthy. There are 6 areas that the program focuses on:

  • Construction Sites
  • Floodplain Violations
  • Illegal Discharges
  • Industrial Sites (as of March 2013)
  • Public Complaints
  • Water Quality Basin (County Owned)
In order to fund the program, the county collects a Federal Stormwater Quality Fee. This fee is dedicated for the sole purpose of preventing pollution and improving our storm water quality. The fee will be identified on your property tax bill and only apply to property owners with improved land located in the unincorporated area of Bexar County. The rate will vary by lot size and property use but the average homeowner will only pay $10 to $14 annually. If you are within the city limits of San Antonio or any other suburban city, you will not be charged this fee.
