Stormwater Utility

Major Responsibilities

The Stormwater Utility is responsible for maintenance, repair, and upgrades to the stormwater system. All municipal piped systems, natural ditches, and surface and subsurface stormwater drains need to be managed for flooding and water quality activities. Many of these activities are mandated under the Federal EPA MS4 Program. When properly protected and managed these interrelated systems can act to filter pollutants, assist in flood control, and protect wildlife.
