About the Stormwater System

The City's stormwater system collects surface and subsurface drainage and carries it to the Missouri River and its tributaries that flow through the community. The man-made portion of this system is made up of over 140 miles of pipe, open ditch, and culverts, and over four miles of open channels. Detention ponds are located at strategic locations throughout the system and help prevent flooding by holding back high flows during large runoff events. Three pumping stations carry runoff from streets and adjoining properties to Hay Creek, Apple Creek, and the Missouri River.
