Who is responsible for the maintenance of the city storm drains?
The Street Division is responsible for maintaining city owned storm drains. Storm drains are inspected and cleaned on a routine schedule to ensure they are in proper condition. Just before the rainy season, all the drains are checked for clearance. If you see a clogged drain or one that may be obstructed by trash or vegetation, call Public Works at (361) 777-4601.

Please note: Several drains and drainage channels in the city are part of San Patrcio County's system and are maintained by county crews. When you call Public Works, we should be able to tell you if the drain belongs to the city or the county. If the drain belongs to the county, we will notify the county's Maintenance Department of the problem.
