Drainage Improvement Projects

Stormwater Utility LogoThe Jacksonville Stormwater Utility is responsible for overseeing the development and construction of large-scale drainage improvement projects in established neighborhoods. These projects are intended to both reduce flood conditions and provide treatment of pollutants of the stormwater. The stormwater fee funds these projects, which are generally approved annually in the city's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).

For maintenance requests, such as ditch cleaning or drain line repair, please call 630-CITY (2489) or visit 630-CITY online.  If you have questions about any of these projects, please e-mail stormwater@coj.net.  Project dates listed below are current as of August 10, 2012. Date shifts may be attributed to unforeseen complications involving issues such as property acquisition or permitting.

Current Project Cost Estimates shown below may include, but may not be limited to, the cost for study, design, construction, and right of way acquisition, and may or may not be inclusive or representative of all funds available for the project.

CIP Estimates reflect the estimate listed for the project in the current year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP).
