Flooding Prevention - Drains

Prevent Flooding: Only Rain Down the Drain

Illegal Dumping Causes Floods!

The City is drained by a system of culverts, ditches, and channels. Any degrading of this system will not only affect the overall drainage system function of the City, but also contribute to the polluting of the bays, bayous, lakes and waterways in and around Pinellas County. Please report illegal activities that affect our storm sewer system and waterways.


  • Blowing of yard waste into the street or drainage system
  • Dumping of oil into storm sewers or ditches
  • Fertilizer ordinance violations
  • Illegal dumping or runoff into the storm sewer, street, or any waterway
  • Trash in ditches
