Stormwater

The Stormwater Division is committed to safely delivering stormwater to drainage outfalls and minimizing any potential flooding through aggressive cleaning and maintenance of the storm drain system. The Stormwater system consists of all gutters, grates, detention ponds, storm inlets, pipes, culverts and any drainage system used to collect rainwater and snowmelt and deliver it to appropriate streams in order to prevent flooding and property damage throughout the city. State and federal EPA laws require all cities to collect storm runoff and minimize the pollution it carries downstream. All water in Utah is publically owned by the state.

 

Stormwater Management Plan

 

Illicit Discharge

The United States Environmental Protection Agency defines an illicit discharge as, "any discharge into a storm drain system that is not composed entirely of stormwater." City storm drain inlets are located all over the City to collect storm water to help alleviate flooding. These storm drain systems drain directly to the Jordan River. Any material that enters the storm drain system, beyond rainwater, poses a risk to wildlife and contaminates our creeks, rivers, and streams. This includes soaps, detergents, paint, wash-out debris, and even leaves and grass clippings. These types of discharges are illegal and pose a health risk to all of us. If you see someone putting anything into a City storm drain, please report it immediately!
