Storm Water Drainage
- Departments:Public Works
- Phone:(515) 963-3520
The storm drainage system collects storm water and coveys it away from buildings and streets. Catch basins or intakes are concrete structures that collect water and convey it into the storm sewer system. The catch basins are cleaned out and their condition is assessed on an annual basis. Throughout the year, debris collects on the catch basin grates, which can cause street flooding. The debris can include leaves, grass, snow, and ice. The Operation Division maintains a list of storm drainage system problems reported by residents or City crews, and we work to remedy them as workload allows.
