See our new Stormwater website!

Mission Statement
The Stormwater division is responsible for the control and maintenance of the City's storm water system consisting of 280 lane miles of swales, 50 miles of ditches, 9 miles of canals, and 275 catch basis/culvert structures.

Functions
a) Improve and maintain water quality through effective Stormwater management strategies
b) Maintain a high level of flood protection through sound planning and service.
c) Maintain Infrastructure integrity to protect public safety and private property.
d) Provide a high level of customer service and communication to the public and private sectors.

What is Stormwater?
Stormwater is the water that results from and which occurs immediately after a rainfall. It is the number one threat to Sebastian's rivers and estuaries. One inch of runoff carries 90% of the pollutants into our waterways. Water that goes down a storm drain or ditch eventually goes out into the Sebastian River and the Indian River Lagoon. Retention and detention ponds are the best way to treat Stormwater runoff because it catches the water and allows the pollutants to settle out before it is released into the waterways. Many lakes in private subdivisions are actuallyPublic Records detention ponds designed to treat pollution. Swales, of which the City of Sebastian has many, slow down the rapid flow of Stormwater runoff from rural highways and residential streets by ponding water between its sloping sides. By letting the water pond, it also treats the water before it goes to the river. Swales can be found throughout the city.

What You can Do To Help
a) Keep the sand and grass cleaned out of the driveway culverts. Your blocked culverts affect your neighbors.
b) Maintain your swale and don't allow grass clippings to build up in the flow line.
c) Apply gutters to your home and route the water to grassy areas.
d) If you need to fertilize, fertilize with low nitrogen mixes.
e) Use Pesticides as infrequently as you can.
f) Wash your car in the grass, not in the driveway.
g) Put your cigarettes in the ashtray, not on the ground. They have a high concentration of nitrogen.
