Drainage Utility Charges on Google Maps
The City of Houston has unveiled a Google Maps based application to provide transparency to Houston residents over drainage utility charges.
Using the application residents and property owners can locate their property on a Google Map and view an itemized detail of their drainage charge. It is possible to apply a variety of map overlays for comparison with city records and your own measurements.
The application includes overlays depicting impervious surface area, parcel boundaries, city boundaries, water meter locations and custom aerial imagery provided by the city.
It is also possible to request charge corrections when city records differ from your own calculations.
