Our storm water drainage system is very important for keeping storm water runoff from flooding roadways and damaging property. The storm drains in the streets are interconnected and eventually discharged to a storm sewer, ditch or stream. The storm drain inlets are spaced along roadways with most located at low points of the street in order to efficiently collect rainwater.
Residents can help by insuring that their storm drain inlets are free and clear of leaves and other debris prior to a rain storm.
If a storm drain inlet is clogged and not accepting runoff or if you detect a flood please contact:
