One of the services the City of Prairie Village provides is stormwater management. This is accomplished through the construction and maintenance of a stormwater management system comprised of curbs, gutters, inlets, pipes, and drainage channels located both underground and at ground level throughout the City.
In order to provide the appropriate level of funding to maintain and operate the stormwater system, the City established a stormwater utility.
City of Prairie Village’s Cost-Share Reimbursement Program
The City of Prairie Village receives annual grants from Johnson County for the Stormwater Treatment Facilities (STF) cost-share program. Last year's grant amount was for $5,000. This program is an innovative approach to controlling stormwater thus improving water quality and aiding in reducing erosion. The program encourages individual homeowners and businesses to incorporate STFs on their property and is intended to help cover the cost of material and/or contractor labor to install such facilities. The program runs from April 1st to October 31st annually.
