Storm Sewer Design & Construction
The Storm Sewer Utilities Division is responsible for the design and construction of public facilities that convey storm water runoff to the Red River. The main goal of our design and construction efforts is to provide the most efficient and affordable storm water conveyance system that can adequately handle storm water runoff events.
The primary components of our storm water system are:
- Storm Sewer Pipes
- Inlets, Catch Basins, & Manholes
- Lift Stations
- Outfall Structures
Some components of the existing storm sewer system are well over 100 years old, with the system being constructed of a variety of materials that includes ductile iron, plastic, steel, cast iron, concrete, brick, and vitrified clay.
Projects typically include the construction of new features designed to increase system capacity, as well as rehabilitation or replacement of existing features that have experienced structural and/or functional deterioration.
