The storm drain system is designed to prevent flooding by carrying excess rainwater into the sewage system. Below are before and after pictures of Park Street showing the effectiveness of a well designed and built storm drain.
The Public Works Department maintains storm drains, endeavoring to keep them clear and free of debris. To report a clogged storm drain or a missing or damaged grate, fill out the online Action Request Form or contact the Public Works Department at 805-237-3861.
Chemical spills in a street or storm drain should be reported immediately to the Fire Department at 805-237-3973.
