Storm Waterupdated: Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Storm water refers to runoff from land and impervious areas such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops during rainfall and snow events without the benefit of treatment. Storm water discharges are a concern because they sometimes contain pollutants in quantities that could adversely affect water quality.
The City's storm water collection system consists of 3,709 catch basins; 3,588 lateral pipes; 1,972 manholes; 90 miles of 12" to 102" pipe; 3 open ditches; 233 inlet-outlet structures; 49 ponds, lakes and dry basins; and 10 lift stations.
