Stormwater Maintenance is responsible for maintaining 96.25 miles of the City's drainage systems in an effort to reduce flooding associated with stormwater runoff. The program responds to public concerns and needs by investigating and resolving complaints of localized flooding.
Maintenance operations are supported through a monthly fee charged to all residential and commercial units within the City limits of $8.00 per equivalent residential unit. The balance of all revenue generated by the fee that is not applied to maintenance operations, is dedicated for drainage capital improvements.
Stormwater Maintenance includes the Street-Sweeping Program that cleans the City's 156-mile road network utilizing an in-house staff-operated machine. All roads are swept once a month in an effort to aid in better drainage, reduce stormwater contamination, and reduce pedestrian or vehicle liability risks.
