Storm Water

Storm Drain2Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining the City’s storm drain system and monitoring storm water quality.

The storm sewer system refers to an important infrastructure that prevents flooding when it rains. The system works to move water away from an area to a local storm drain basin. It is important to note that the City of Kerman has no receiving waters such as creeks, rivers, lakes or canals to which storm water can be directed. The storm sewer system includes the inlets (storm drains) and gutters on your street as well as pipes and outfalls, where the storm water enters the Storm Drain Basins.

The City maintains eleven basins that collect run off water and is in compliance with the State Water Resources Control Board. Protecting our drinking water is everyone’s responsibility.

Please do not put contaminants into our storm drains because the contaminants can percolate into the water table.
