The Stormwater Management Department maintains the stormwater management facilities, which treat runoff water by trapping pollutants and trash and slow down the water release rate before the water enters receiving waters.
The stormwater management facilities consist of:
4 Open channel swales
4 Stormwater pumping stations along Carroll Creek
12 City-owned stormwater underground facilities
37 City-owned stormwater ponds
210 Miles of storm drain lines
In addition, this department inspects 227 privately maintained stormwater ponds and 135 privately maintained underground facilities every three years to ensure they are within compliance with the Stormwater Phase II regulations.
