Mission

The mission of the Storm Water Management Department is to protect public health and safety through storm water management by working to reduce the risk of flooding, improve the overall drainage system, and preserve the water quality in playa lakes, groundwater, and tributaries to the Brazos River. 

Accomplishing the Mission

The mission of the Storm Water Management Department is divided into three sections: Engineering, Education and Enforcement. Storm Water Engineering strives to provide safe, effective and economical Storm Water drainage systems through planning, engineering and land transactions. The Storm Water Education Team educates contractors, developers and the public on the Storm Water system and regulations, while promoting environmental stewardship. The Storm Water Inspectors work alongside citizens, contractors and industry to assure safe, effective drainage systems and clean, pollutant free playa lakes.
