Very important: Stormwater and drainage in this little City of Lake Worth.

If you happen to have a persistent issue with storm drains getting clogged contact the Public Works Division (phone number, email address, and more information is below).

Or the other option is you can contact somebody you know at a TV news station. However, TV reporters don’t clear drains. But maybe you’ll get interviewed on TV! Don’t forget these “easy-to-learn and highly effective techniques” demonstrating how to do a TV news interview.

Anyhow, without further ado. . .

Drainage System Maintenance.

The City’s Stormwater Division has a certified, technical staff and fleet of heavy equipment that work to maintain proper drainage and to prevent pollutants from reaching inlets and storm drains that lead into our Intracoastal waterway. The Streets Division cleans drains before and after rain events and major storms.

You can help by reporting blocked drains
and keeping garbage and debris away
from the drains.

It is prohibited to deposit anything that is not identified as acceptable stormwater directly or indirectly into the stormwater system.
