FAQ

  • Generally speaking, placing fill dirt, construction debris, or other materials is not allowed with any watercourse, whether it is a creek that runs year round or a dry wash.  The drainage function of all watercourses must be preserved so that they have sufficient capacity to convey stormwater runoff.  Any alteration to a watercourse requires a permit and a plan prepared by a civil engineer that meets the requirements of the City Code, including the General Engineering Standards (Article 3).

  • It depends.  Fences are not allowed across drainage easements or within FEMA designated floodways, but may be allowed in other situations where it would not adversely affect the function of the watercourse.

  • Drainage culverts underneath public roadways are maintained by the Streets Maintenance Division, whose hotline number is 777-1666.  Driveway culverts and culverts or pipes on private property are the maintenance responsibility of the property owner or Home Owners Association.
