Stormwater Utility

The Stormwater Utility, a section within the Public Works Department, ensures that stormwater systems are planned, developed and maintained to prevent flooding, protect water quality and preserve natural stormwater systems. The Stormwater Utility strives to provide leadership and a focus for other community efforts working toward improved stormwater management that causes as little short-term and long-term harm as possible to the environment.
