Community Services Department Road Crews inspect and maintain both the open ditch drainage system, and the enclosed storm drainage collection systems along the 1,040 miles of County roadways. The open drainage within the right-of-way is critical to regional storm water management efforts. 


Roads teams are focused on ensuring that water conveyance can occur through the integrated open ditch system.


Roads teams use a variety of tools to ensure water drains in the open ditch system including: mowing, weed removal, and sediment removal.
