Stormwater Utility

 The City’s Stormwater Utility operates and maintains the extensive stormwater collection and treatment system of swales, ditches, culverts, catch basins, baffle boxes and the 8.15 mile Elkcam Canal/Collier Creek Canal.

Each homeowner is responsible for mowing and cleaning their own front yard swale and driveway culvert and in the few cases where the homeowner has a side yard swale.
