Stormwater Management

Eugene Stormwater Services

Stormwater is a vital component of our community, as it has a direct effect on our water quality and our capacity to avoid flooding during heavy rainstorms.


The stormwater collection system includes all publicly maintained pipes, culverts, catch basins, channels, ditches, ponds, wetlands and related waterways.


Eugene's Stormwater Management Team includes staff from several divisions, including planning and permitting, engineering, maintenance, parks and open space, and administration. All share a commitment to protecting water quality in local waterways.


Stormwater programs  follow federal guidelines to comply with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) under the federal clean water act.
