Frequently Asked Questions

Any odor nuisances should be called in. There is not always something that can be done about it, but the City needs to make sure the sanitary sewer system has not been leaking into the storm sewer system. The most common odor problems at storm sewer outfalls are decomposing leaves and other organic matter, and this poses no threat to human health.

The Environmental Services Department works with other departments in the City to address these concerns. Depending on the situation, a City crew may be able to come out and regrade the area that it drains again, but a drainage easement must exist for the City to enter the property for this reason.

This is not always a concern, but should be reported so that City staff can evaluate the situation and prevent problems from occurring.

There is no simple answer for this question. The City's ability to improve the situation is entirely dependent on the location and cause of the flooding.  Several homes in the City were built before the FEMA enacted the floodplain restrictions, and these homes will flood given a large enough storm.  However, some problems can be addressed by repairing the storm sewer system.  If your home has flooded, please report this information to the City.
