Drainage System Maintenance

Storm drains are meant to handle only storm water. Dumping debris can block the flow of storm water and cause flooding. To report dumping activities call (970) 263-8201. For more information, contact the Mesa County Stormwater Division.

Mesa County's storm drain system contains a mix of underground pipes, roadside barrow ditches and natural washes and open drains. If these areas plug with debris, localized flooding can occur. Mesa County relies upon the littering statute 18-4-511 to prohibit litter in waterways. Notify the Stormwater Division at (970) 263-8201 to report localized flooding or inappropriate material being placed in a waterway.
