Storm Drains

The City of Chula Vista storm drain system consists of approximately 1.7 million feet of pipe, 1.6 million feet of storm channels, 19,000 access points and 150 other miscellaneous structures consisting of Continuous Deflective Separation (CDS) units, water quality basins and modular wetlands.

The Storm Drain Maintenance Program provides inspections, cleaning and maintenance services to the city's storm drain conveyance system. The storm drain systems operation and maintenance (O&M) activities generally involve routine inspections, cleaning and removing pollutants from inlets and outlets, catch basins and filter baskets. An average of 8.2 tons of trash, pollutants and other debris are removed from the storm drain system each year preventing contaminants from entering the bay or other watercourses.

We are committed to meeting the ever-increasing challenges to improving storm water discharge quality through improved storm water treatment systems and routine trash, debris and pollutant removal. We strive to maintain this valuable infrastructure in a manner that both serves the public and protects the environment.
