About the Division


In October, 2001, City Council amended the City Code by enacting Chapter 96 Stormwater which consolidated all the existing stormwater regulations into one chapter and enacted a new article dealing with discharges of pollutants into the municipal stormwater drainage system. Stormwater Engineering, previously part of the Engineering Division, was elevated to Division status in 2002.
