Maintenance of Stormwater System
Some of our primary maintenance activities associated with operation and maintenance of our stormwater system consist of vegetation control and maintenance of stormwater swales and retention/detention facilities, cleaning and clearing debris from curbs and storm basin inlets, and working with owners of privately maintained stormwater systems to ensure proper maintenance and operations of their systems.
