About Us

The Transportation and Storm Water Department (T&SW) is responsible for the operation and maintenance of streets, sidewalks, and storm drains; leads efforts to protect and improve the water quality of rivers, creeks, bays, and the ocean; performs traffic and transportation system engineering; manages the Utilities Undergrounding program; and plans and coordinates work in the right-of-way. These functions work together in an effort "to plan, coordinate, and perform right-of-way maintenance and improvements and to protect and improve water quality through model storm water programs."

The Department is comprised of four distinct divisions: Administration and Right of Way Coordination, Storm Water, Street, and Transportation Engineering Operations (TEO).
