Stormwater Line Maintenance and Repair
According to the utility maps, there are approximately 469 sumps (both municipally and privately owned), 111 miles of underground storm drain line (municipally and privately owned), and 3.88 miles of groundwater collection lines. There are also irrigation ditches throughout the town which are used to help in storm runoff.
We have implemented a maintenance plan for the storm drain utility. Our goal is to eliminate pollutants from entering the stormwater system to the maximum extent possible, and also to have a well maintained system that eliminates flooding due to heavy or extended rainfall. The main goal of our plan is to have a well maintained system that runs efficiently and eliminates flooding problems within the city. This will be done by a number of activities which include: public education, street sweeping, cleaning by the jet truck, mapping/updating current maps, tracking the cleaning/inspection process, and repairing any problems reported.
What can I do to help?
Do not dump hazardous liquids like motor oil, anti-freeze, and grease into the gutter.
Do not put yard waste in the gutter. The waste will accumulate and plug storm lines causing flooding.
Periodically clean and inspect the gutter in front of your house, including under your drive approach. This will not only help maintain the beauty of our city streets but prevent flooding due to plugged drains.
If you happen to see someone dumping hazardous liquids into the gutters, please contact Utah County Dispatch at (801) 851-4100.
