    June 30, 2018 Storm Event Community Survey Questionnaire

    The City of Ankeny Municipal Utilities Department conducted a community survey regarding storm sewers and sanitary sewers. This survey closed on April 30, 2019. 

    During the evening of June 30, 2018, portions of central Iowa experienced a historic amount of precipitation in a short period of time. Up to 10 inches of rainfall fell in some areas of Ankeny. Many residents and businesses experienced damage to their property due to surface water flooding and/or basement back-ups.

    Prior to this historic rainfall, the City of Ankeny was conducting two studies to evaluate its storm sewers and sanitary sewers. As part of the research process for the studies, input from residents was needed to help identify problem areas in Ankeny; to aid in the prioritization of capital improvement projects that will improve our storm sewers and sanitary sewers.

    Thank you to those who took the time to complete this survey, we are reviewing the results now. Your input on the type and extent of flood related issues experienced at your property or hearing from those whose properties did not experience problems was crucial to this process.
