Capital Plan & Reports

Goshen incorporated in 1831, but it did not have a stormwater utility or stormwater utility funding until 174 years later when the utility was created by ordinance in 2005. When the stormwater utility came into being, Civil City transferred to the Stormwater Utility 85 miles of storm pipe, 2,358 catch basins, 507 inlet structures, and 6 stormwater treatment units.

Numerous stormwater drainage concerns are reported to the Utility annually. Each stormwater drainage concern is evaluated and prioritized. There are currently more stormwater concerns than funding provides for. The annual revenue for the stormwater utility is approximately $460,000.  Of that funding, 9-percent is expended on programming, 21-percent is expended on professional services, 27-percent is expended on administration, and 43% is expended on infrastructure improvements. With available funding of approximately $200,000 per year for construction, large public works projects require multiple years of savings. At present, the stormwater utility has no outstanding bonds.
