The Stormwater Engineering Division has the following responsibilities.
Capital Improvement Projects
A Five-Year Plan of Capital Improvement Projects has been developed to prioritize needs over time and to work within available funding limits. These are larger projects which require extensive planning prior to construction. Information on the Fiscal Year 2017 and 2018 projects can be found under Stormwater Capital Improvement Projects. Previous projects can be found under Fiscal Year 2015 projects and Fiscal Year 2016 projects.
Planning and Environmental
Flooding concerns and Water Quality programs are investigated by stormwater professionals and prioritized accordingly. A Stormwater Utility Fund was established in FY04 as a means of improving the level of service provided to all areas of the City. The utility fund allows the City to coordinate planning, maintenance and improvement projects.
Design Engineering and Drafting
Engineering staff within the Stormwater Department review construction plans to ensure that development does not negatively affect the performance of the City's existing infrastructure. The Design Engineering group also performs rainfall and runoff modeling to assist other divisions with developing and prioritizing improvement projects. Extensive assistance is also provided to third-party design and survey firms to ensure that City design standards are followed. More...
