Waterways Maintenance Plan

The City of San Diego is responsible for a storm drain system that conveys runoff from local neighborhoods to the Pacific Ocean.  Portions of the storm drain system require periodic maintenance to remove accumulated sediment, vegetation and trash that impedes water flow and increases flood risks. The City’s Master Storm Water System Maintenance Program (MSWSMP) describes the process for planning and performing current maintenance activities. That program will expire in 2018.

The City is currently developing a new Waterways Maintenance Plan that will guide maintenance of the storm drain system following the expiration of the MSWSMP. The City is seeking public input regarding the new plan and invites you to attend a public workshop to learn more and comment on the development of the plan.

The City also invites you to submit comments about the Waterways Maintenance Plan to [email protected]
