The Stormwater Program operates as a division of the Planning Department. To find out more about stormwater runoff and water quality in our region, please visit our public education website.
All real property experiences stormwater run-on and runoff regardless if a drainage concern exists on that specific piece of property or not. Even if your property has never flooded, the stormwater that flows off your property must be managed so that it does not contribute to flooding or pollution in areas downstream. Whether you live in a condominium, a suburban home or in an urban setting, stormwater is an issue.
Stormwater Management has opportunities for enrichment planned. Just look for the tent at local events.
