The Streets & Drainage Division is also responsible for maintenance and construction of 8,000 feet of concrete drainage channels, 5,600 feet of non-concrete drainage channels, and countless miles of underground storm pipe, and for maintenance of the Big Fossil Floodway and levee, mowing, weed trimming, trimming trees, removing debris and patching any concrete drainage structures needing repairs. The Drainage Division also maintains the flood pumps at the levee.
»Please note that drainage ditches are not built for trash disposal. Please do not dispose of leaves, grass clippings, trash, debris into open drainage systems. This will impede the flow of water into the underground system increasing the potential for flooding.«
