The City operates a stormwater utility established and guided by the Stormwater Ordinance, a Stormwater Management Plan, and a number of City policies that address the key principles and requirements of managing the stormwater system.
The Asset Management Program policy defines role and responsibilities and sets scope and goals for the Stormwater Utility operation. The Extent of Service (EOS) policy describes the components of the storm drainage system maintained by the City. The Level of Service (LOS) policy establishes the strategic program goals for the stormwater program and the tactical service goals that guide the maintenance activities for the stormwater drainage system.
This figure illustrates some typical components of the stormwater drainage system and ownership usually associated with each component.
