Storm Drainage System

The storm drainage system consists of one city owned permanent discharge basin (commonly referred to as the Brickyard), one city owned detention basin at the City’s Corporation Yard, one city owned Park-Pond basin at Park Place, separate primary points of discharge into the Consolidated Peoples Ditch along Belmont Avenue, an underground pipe network, and three lift stations.  The majority of the storm drain infrastructure in the downtown area was constructed prior to the 1940s while numerous additions and repairs have been made to other parts of the town over the last 70 years.


The water division is responsible for the quality and quantity of water to serve our residents.  This includes all necessary and required testing as well as insuring we have adequate long term supplies for our residents.

The water division operates and maintains the city’s water system which consists of eight wells, chlorination treatment facilities at each of the active wells, two inactive wells, one elevated storage tank with a capacity of 100,000 gallons, and a loop distribution system.
