City Utilities completes many types of stormwater drainage projects each year - from small repairs to large system expansions and replacements. Some projects add capacity to the existing storm sewer system to reduce flooding, while other projects add new service areas into the system due to development.
The map below shows more than 30 areas where Fort Wayne's Stormwater Utility is making improvements to address drainage concerns and issues. More than $40 million is being invested in neighborhood drainage projects. Click on image below for larger map with links to project pages.
