Drainage systems can lose carrying or storage capacity due to:
- Soil Erosion
- Overgrowth of vegetation
When this happens, flooding occurs more frequently, subjecting properties otherwise protected to unnecessary risk of damage.
Keep grass clippings and other debris out of the stormwater drainage system.
- If you experience localized drainage problems, contact Public Works @ 772-467-3000.
- If you see illegal stormwater dumping, contact the Fort Pierce Stormwater Hotline @ 772-467-3782.
