Storm Water Requirements

The City’s storm drain system is important infrastructure that prevents flooding when it rains. The system includes: 

  • gutters and surface drainage on streets,
  • storm drain inlets, and
  • storm drain pipes and outfalls. 

Storm drains flow directly into surface water bodies without any treatment, so it is critical to keep stormwater pollutant free.
