The City provides storm drainage through a network of storm sewers, ditches and municipal drains. The City initiated a Storm Sewer Infrastructure Needs Study (SSINS) in 2012.The SSINS consisted of an analysis and review of the City's existing storm sewer network to identify existing and potential future deficiencies in the collection of storm water runoff and address storm water discharge quality. The Study provides the City with strategies necessary to manage infrastructure improvements and growth in the most effective and efficient manner.
