Storm Water Action Team
A Storm Water Action Team (SWAT) has been created to help proactively improve drainage and mitigate flooding citywide.
Approximately 100 projects spread throughout the city have been initially identified for the SWAT program. Projects have been selected based on 311 calls and other data regarding frequency of flooding.
City Council has approved an initial funding of $10 million so that work can begin on 22 projects, two in each council district.

ROADSIDE DITCHES & CULVERTS
