The Public Works Department provides Storm Water management services to maintain Storm Water infrastructure, improve Storm Water quality, and protect the community from flooding. Storm Water drainage lines are located throughout the entire city. Rain water flows off urban streets, parking lots, construction sites, and neighborhoods, where it is then channeled into the City's Storm Water drainage system of pipes and ditches. Its final destination is our creeks, bays, estuaries, and oceans.

The City has two divisions responsible for managing Storm Water. Storm Water – Maintenance of Lines division maintains inlets, pipes, and drains to provide adequate levels of drainage and flood protection. The Storm Water – Pollution Prevention Team manages activities associated with the City’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permit to minimize pollution from entering Storm Water.

To report flooding issues or illegal discharge and dumping into the Storm Water system please call the City’s Call Center at (361) 826- CITY (2489).
