The storm drain system is designed to prevent flooding by carrying excess rainwater into the sewage system. Below are before and after pictures of Park Street showing the effectiveness of a well designed and built storm drain.
The Streets Maintenance Division maintains storm drains, endeavoring to keep them clear and free of debris. To report a clogged storm drain or a missing or damaged grate, fill out an Action Request Form.
Chemical spills in a street or storm drain should be reported immediately to the Fire Department at 237-3973.
