The Wastewater Collection Department also operates and maintains the City’s storm drainage collection system. The storm drainage collection system consists of 112 miles of underground storm drain lines, underground storage pipes, and 141 acres of detention ponds. The Storm Drain Collection crew vacuums 2,448 storm drain catch basins per year, maintains 56 storm drain pump stations, and associated basins, storm inlets, and discharge lines. The system is designed to prevent flooding in the community.
The division ensures that storm drain facilities function properly to protect the community and environment while meeting Phase 2 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water requirements.
* Ensure our comprehensive storm drain inspection, repair and preventive maintenance program is maintained in accordance with program objectives.
* Continue to explore the feasibility of implementing new procedures and technologies to enhance the efficiency and productivity of the division that will provide the highest level of customer service.
*Note: If you notice that a storm drain is backed up, please contact the Public Works Department at (209) 385-6800.
