Yard Drainage

The City offers a variety of resources and technical assistance for yard drainage. Staff can investigate stormwater issues that may be public problems, such as:
  • Stormwater infrastructure maintenance;
  • Standing water (48 hrs or longer) that cannot be resolved with finish grading;
  • Issues causing a potential for loss of life or damage to public infrastructures or buildings;
  • Conflict with emergency access;
  • Potential for high risk stream bank erosion on multiple properties; or
  • Potential for water quality degradation. Learn how to identify and report pollution.
If you have a public concern, please contact the City's Customer Service Center.
