The storm sewer system is the responsibility of the street division.
Maplewood has an extensive storm drain system to accommodate storm water runoff consisting of:
- Storm sewers
- Catch basins
- Lift stations
- Force mains
Maplewood has initiated a number of programs and erosion control policies to improve storm water quality.
Treatment ponds and sedimentation sumps within manholes are designed to remove significant amounts of natural and man-made pollutants from the storm water before it enters area lakes.
Storm sewers are intended for one thing only—storm water.
