City-Wide Drainage Study

Major Drainage Systems and Outfalls

City Wide Drainage Study


​In 2017, the City began an assessment of the all the existing storm sewer pipes to verify which parts of the system satisfy the 2-year capacity requirement. This effort was performed in phases, and the scope of work for different portions of the City varied according to the type of work and level of detail required from one area to the other.  The combined efforts reflects a general City-wide drainage capacity evaluation, with more detailed assessments and studies of specific areas within the City.
