The Storm Water and Flood Control Division is responsible for the repair and maintenance of drainage facilities in the right-of-way and in the improved channels dedicated to the City of Poway. This division works closely with the city's Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program and performs cleaning and maintenance activities on the city's storm water conveyance systems. During the dry summer months, storm drain catch basins and pipes accumulate trash, debris, and other unwanted waste. Without the efforts of city crews, unmanaged waste would flow directly into creeks and ultimately to the ocean.
