How do we maintain the system?
The Construction Management and Engineering Division is responsible for assisting with the design, construction and maintenance of the existing City stormwater infrastructure. The department's goal is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Palm Coast through a full range of efficient and effective municipal services and a comprehensive program of stormwater management while advancing the quality of life and the City's interests.
The Division's stormwater functions include maintaining the City-wide stormwater drainage system - from the front-yard swales to the inter-connecting ditch system to the freshwater and saltwater canal systems. The Division also performs hydraulic modeling of the existing drainage system to identify needed improvements, replaces drainage pipes under streets and improves valley gutters. The Division oversees many larger capital improvements projects each year including weir replacement and major roadway crossings.
The City of Palm Coast has a comprehensive stormwater maintenance and rehabilitation program to ensure proper drainage throughout the City. Examples of ongoing stormwater maintenance programs and rehabilitation projects include swale maintenance, valley gutter installations, storm pipes, water control structures, drainage ditches, freshwater canals and saltwater canals. The City also conducts stormwater modeling every other year to determine priorities for stormwater rehabilitation projects.
