Stormwater
Stormwater issues affect us all. Proper drainage and flood control seriously impact life in Central Florida. The Stormwater Division is responsible for maintaining proper drainage, flood control, water quality, and waterfront improvement activity permitting. Through the programs listed below the Stormwater Division hopes to positively affect the residents of Altamonte Springs.
  • Maintenance and repair of the city’s stormwater system - This activity includes city owned stormwater ponds, pipes, storm drains, and underground retention systems.
  • Inspection of privately-owned stormwater systems - In cases where the stormwater system has not been dedicated to the city for maintenance, it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the integrity of the system and to ensure functionality. Private stormwater systems are subject to annual inspections by city staff.
  • Storm drain stenciling program for city drainage structures - The city uses a white and blue stencil: “No Dumping! Drains to Waterway.” If you see a storm drain that is missing a stencil please notify the Stormwater Division at 407-571-8607.
  • Provide flood information - The City of Altamonte Springs participates in the National Flood Insurance Program to offer residential and commercial property owners located in special flood hazard areas affordable flood insurance.
  • Street Sweeping Program - Provides for the cleaning of city streets to aid in eliminating debris and nutrients from entering our storm drains, lakes and rivers.
  • Watershed management - Stormwater Division strives to protect and improve water quality and the environment by decreasing the amount of pollutants and sediments entering the hydrologic system. Through the following programs, this holistic approach expands our focus to include all impacts to water quality within the watershed:
    • Surface Water Quality and Watershed Atlas
    • Aquatic Plant Management
    • Waterfront Activity Permitting
    • NPDES Compliance
    • Illegal Dumping and Hazard Spills
