When would the City undertake a drainage project to fix a drainage issue?

The City assists neighborhoods in cases where large flood events are preventing emergency vehicles from assisting residents, a resident’s health is being directly affected, the safety of the homeowner is at risk each time it rains, or a resident’s property is adversely affected during a typical rain event. The Engineering Division reviews all cases and ultimately determines whether the drainage request falls within the City’s definition of a drainage issue and is within City ROW/Easements for further City involvement.
