Stormwater Maintenance

The Street Division is responsible for maintaining the existing storm drainage system and installing new storm drainage within the right-of-way.  Pipe maintenance crews are responsible for performing new construction and repair projects, along with preventive maintenance activities. 

Examples of the types of projects undertaken include:

  • New Pipe Installation
  • Repair and upgrades of existing pipes
  • Pipe cleaning projects
  • Catch basin cleaning
  • Catch basin repair
  • Catch basin construction
  • Manhole repairs and construction
  • Erosion control projects
  • Spill/hazard responses
  • Cave-in projects
  • Other Miscellaneous maintenance functions related to the stormwater pipe infrastructures

The crews also support open ditch maintenance, as needed, within the right-of-way.  One ongoing project is to mark all City drains with "No Dumping Drains to River" markers to help educate the public not to pollute our drains.
