City Stormwater Drainage Division Checking, Cleaning Storm Drains

The City of West Palm Beach Stormwater Drainage Division reminds residents to remove any yard debris near curbs that may block or clog stormwater drains. The City is monitoring an anticipated weekend rain event and higher than normal tides. The City will be checking and cleaning storm drains accordingly.

To report incidents of flooding, please contact the City of West Palm Beach Public Utilities Center Operations Emergency Office at (561) 822-2210 (TTY: 800-855-8771) The Office, dedicated to customer satisfaction, is available 24/7.

The Stormwater Drainage Division is responsible for managing drainage runoff throughout the City. The division cleans and inspects the system including storm grates and drainage basins on a routine basis, which enables staff to remedy issues, before they might occur.
