Private Storm Drainage System Maintenance

Maintaining Your Stormwater System

Stormwater systems are designed to collect and control runoff. They play a key role in preventing flooding, pollution and erosion. Stormwater systems include structures such as catch basins, ponds and ditches, which require periodic maintenance to ensure that they function properly.

Property Owner Requirement
The City of Auburn requires property owners to inspect and maintain stormwater systems on their private property. The City inspects private stormwater systems to ensure they are functioning properly, and pollutants are not entering the drainage system and surface waters of Auburn.
