Creek maintenance is an integral part of storm water management system. Creeks are an essential part of our storm drainage system. Creeks receive storm water from the watershed and convey the water to a  larger water body such as a lake or a river. Well-maintained creeks provide:
  • flood protection
  • natural beauty
  • habitat for aquatic life and wildlife
  • recreation opportunities
One of the goals in creek maintenance operations is to preserve a balance between reducing flood risks and protecting the environment. Creek maintenance generally includes the following operations:
  • removing blockages that could prevent water from flowing over banks
  • trimming or removing vegetation within creek banks
  • install measurers to prevent wash outs and protect water quality at the vicinity of creeks
