Maintaining Our Stormwater System

Now that hurricane season (June-November) is upon us, residents are urged to take the necessary steps to prepare themselves, their homes, and their yards for high wind events.  But in preparing your yard, certain precautions need to be taken to ensure that the debris you remove from your yard doesn't create a community problem.  City of Titusville Stormwater Utility representatives explain, “Everything that flows into the stormwater drains goes to the Indian River Lagoon. To improve the health of our lagoon, we must let only rain water into our drains. Everyone can help by not sweeping or blowing their yard debris into the stormwater system.” 

STORMWATER UTILITY BACKGROUND

Created by ordinance in 1990, Titusville's Stormwater Utility provides essential services that reduce flooding and improve water quality in both the Indian and St. Johns' Rivers.  The Utility is responsible for operating and maintaining: Maintenance includes replacement of metal pipes, vegetation control in ditches and canals, and regularly scheduled cleaning of all ditches and inlets.  It also constructs neighborhood drainage improvements and implements regional master plan projects that serve entire drainage basins and meet or exceed new State and Federal water quality requirements.  Annual stormwater fees provide revenues that are dedicated to the planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the City's stormwater infrastructure.
