City Utilities completes many types of stormwater drainage projects each year - from small repairs to large separations and replacements. Some projects help add stormwater capacity to the existing system to help with flooding, while other projects add new service areas into the system due to development. One of the largest projects ever undertaken by City Utilities is Tunnel Works Project aimed at significantly reducing the number of occasions during the year when combined sewers overflow to the city's rivers. These combined sewer overflow events or CSOs are directly related to stormwater management since the overflows occur when stromwater causes the sewer system to exceed its capacity.

Fort Wayne City Utilities frequently holds special meetings to discuss projects with residents who may be affected. Meetings are held at several stages in each project. Usually meetings are held when project design is about to begin, just before construction begins and when design is complete. Stay informed and sign up for e-news updates.
