Pay the drainage bill

If you’re a property owner and you haven’t paid the new storm water utility fee charged by the Grand Valley Drainage District, we recommend you do so.

The bills went out in March. Most homeowners were charged $36. Businesses and other property owners are billed $36 per 2,500 square feet of impervious surfaces.

A second wave of bills hit mailboxes in late July after a Mesa County District Court judge denied a motion brought against the drainage district for a preliminary injunction.
