The City’s Stormwater team oversees all stormwater related issues in the City. These responsibilities include:
We can work to reduce the pollutants entering our waterways. By making careful choices in our homes and businesses, we can keep our creeks, lakes, and communities healthy.

It is important for you to understand your flood insurance options. If you have a government-backed mortgage and your property is identified to be in a high-risk area (e.g., Zone A, AE), your lender will require flood insurance.
The National Flood Insurance Program provides savings by allowing lower‐cost Preferred Risk Policy (PRP) rates to be used up to 11 months after a new flood map becomes effective. Premiums will then increase no more than 18 percent each year.
Additional savings can be realized if a policy is in place before the maps become effective. If your property is no longer in a high-risk area or has had no change, you are still strongly encouraged to convert your policy to a PRP and continue to carry flood insurance. Contact your insurance provider for more details.
