Answer 7. Historically, the allocation of funds has not been sufficient to address all of York County's storm water service needs. The County is currently reactive to addressing problems. Being reactive instead of proactive results in greater environmental damage as well as being more costly to cleanup or repair. Similar to failing to properly maintain your car, if we do not properly maintain stormwater infrastructure, a failure can be catastrophic. State and federal laws also require that municipalities address the environmental impacts of stormwater pollution, but do not provide the funds to do it. Consequently, we must investigate alternative means for raising revenue.
