The City does not perform regular maintenance on most drainage easements within the City. A drainage easement is a document providing the City the right to place public water on private property. Property within a drainage easement belongs to the property owner, and not the City. Further, the property owner is responsible for removing trash, keeping vegetation mowed, and similar maintenance activities. The City only becomes involved when there is a major blockage, or infrastructure failure.

All City streets are designed to carry a certain amount of water during storms, even beyond the curb in most cases. Water entering a house is a concern to the City, and should be reported as soon as it happens so the City can investigate the problem and look for solutions.
