The Stormwater Department is committed to safely delivering stormwater to drainage outfalls and minimizing any potential flooding through aggressive cleaning and maintenance of the storm drain system.
The stormwater system consists of all gutters, grates, detention ponds, storm inlets, pipes, culverts and any drainage system used to collect rainwater and snowmelt and deliver it to appropriate streams in order to prevent flooding and property damage throughout the city. State and federal Environmental Protection Agency laws require all cities to collect storm runoff and minimize the pollution it carries downstream. All stormwater in Utah is publicly owned by the state.
Part of the department's duties is to sweep each road in Herriman twice each year and clean each catch basin at least every two years. Catch basin sumps collect debris and sediment from stormwater and need to be cleared periodically. The department also maintains and inspects open drainages and detention ponds for flood control. Sand bags are available for residents to pick up when needed at Butterfield Park. Contact Herriman City at 801-446-5323 if you are in need of sand bags.
Herriman City maintains 4,192 storm drain structures and 83.4 miles of pipe ranging between 12 and 72 inches in diameter.
