    The FDD Program is designed and initiated as a Community Solution to a Community Problem. The FDD Program is a greener, less expensive and more effective solution than all other alternatives proposed. If you choose not to participate in the FDD Program when your neighborhood is selected for disconnection, you will be required to pay the costs of treating the stormwater and groundwater entering into the system from your home.
