Welcome to our Survey for Arlington’s Stormwater program.

The purpose of this survey is to get your input on how the County talks about stormwater and proposed changes to how you are charged for stormwater service. Your feedback will help us develop a new stormwater rate structure. There are three sections where you can provide your input.
 
Part 1: Tell us what you know
Your input will help us communicate with you better.
 
Part 2: Tell us what matters to you
Your input will help us decide which rate structure will work best to meet our goals. 
 
Part 3: Provide your thoughts on how we currently charge for our services
Your input will guide decision making on how we implement the new rate structure.
 
Part 4: Please tell us about yourself
Your answers will help us understand who we heard from in the community.
