Storm water management is an often misunderstood responsibility of communities. Over the years communities around the country have been implementing measures to improve the quality of our storm water and reduce the quantity of pollutants reaching our streams and rivers. Some examples of these measures are constructing raingardens around the city and placing dog waste stations in our parks.
This page contains all the information a citizen would need to fully understand Stormwater.
This master plan identifies and prioritizes necessary or desirable capital improvements and stormwater
operational staffing needs of the City of Dallas and establishes a schedule and financing plan to implement
the recommended necessary improvements.
More specifically, this plan presents the results of the analysis of the existing stormwater collection and
conveyance system, focusing on existing problem areas to identify modifications and additions to correct
current deficiencies and address predicted future needs.
As part of this master planning project, data about the storm drainage system were converted from
computer‐aided drafting (CAD) files to a database that can be used with geographical information system
(GIS) to facilitate future system analysis and asset management. The available data from the CAD files are
limited and will be supplemented with additional information in the future.
