ABOUT THE STORMWATER MASTER PLAN
The Stormwater Master Plan is a long-term vision document that will be a guide for major investment in the city’s stormwater infrastructure to bring about long-term improvements. The Stormwater Master Plan is part of a larger master plan to address St. Pete’s water infrastructure holistically.
The Stormwater Master Plan started in 2017 with the collection of data from multiple sources including existing databases, computer models, field surveys and public input. From this data, the City is developing a computer database to analyze the drainage system and identify drainage infrastructure upgrades. Recommendations from the Stormwater Master Plan will help provide a plan to mitigate risks to our city by providing sustainable and resilient recommendations for improvements.
