If you frequently experience flooding or standing water in your yard, this shared-cost program will fund up to 50% of the cost, up to $5,000, for you to have a contractor install a private storm sewer in your yard that connects to the City's storm sewer system.
Pre-approval from the City is required, and this program does not apply to work that has already been completed.
This is not a first-come, first-served program. The City will accept applications now through the Feb. 1, 2023 deadline and will then award funding to projects based on a set scoring system. Scoring is based on factors including the depth of a depressional area served by the proposed private storm sewer, and the number of neighboring properties that would benefit from the proposed storm sewer.
The City will award as many grants as possible until the allotted yearly budget has been spent, which for 2023 is a total of $50,000. Residents whose project are not selected for this year’s program can reapply for consideration in the following year’s program.
