Overview

storm_crew

The Public Works Division annually completes maintenance and clearing of all pump stations, catch basins, inlets, and creeks (lined and unlined) before October 15, the start of the wet season. A strategy of preventive maintenance, periodic inspections and as needed cleanings drives the annual work schedule. Typically, to maintain proper flow, crews remove and dispose of 400 cubic yards of trash and debris from basins and inlets, and 1,650 cubic yards of trash, debris and sediment from creeks, channels and drainage ditches.
