Storm Sewer Maintenance

Storm sewer maintenance is a combined effort between the Storm Sewer Utilities Department and the Street Department. The primary goal of this team is to ensure that the City of Fargo storm sewer system is inspected, cleaned and repaired in a systematic manner to allow for optimum performance.

Maintenance Activities

The maintenance activity on Fargo's storm drain system has increased significantly with the rapid growth of our community. Maintenance crews are continually working to keep up with the cleaning of 9,822 inlets and catch basins, 6,045 manholes, 81 lift stations and 352 miles of various storm sewer line.








Maintenance is an important part of storm water management for the City of Fargo. Routine cleaning of the system reduces street flooding.
