Drainage System

Drainage Maintenance

City drainage maintenance is limited to flood control and prevention. As such, city drainage maintenance is restricted to removing obstructions from drainage areas.

Most drainage areas (creeks, etc.) are located on private property and are owned by the adjoining home or property owner. As a result, vegetation and erosion control is the responsibility of the individual property owner.

Sand Bags

To request sand bags during an emergency flooding situation, call 911.

Drainage System Improvements

Major upgrades to a drainage system (such as a creek) usually are done in order to reduce the size of the 100-year flood plain and reduce the number of homes at risk of flooding. These projects usually are funded through the issuance of municipal bonds or other debt and are performed by a private company.
