If you look in the street outside of your home or office and search the parking lots around town, you will probably find storm sewer inlets. Did you ever wonder where they go? The City’s stormwater drainage system is 100% gravity fed, and drains directly to the waterways throughout the City.
A common misconception about storm sewers is that they go to a wastewater treatment plant. This is not the case. Storm sewers transport stormwater, untreated, to the nearest river, lake, stream or wetland.
