In the early 1990's, City Council recognized the need to address failing and undersized storm water systems. In 1995, City Council appointed a citizen task force group to assess Rock Hill's stormwater problems. As a result of this task force, City Council established the Stormwater Division to improve storm water systems in 1996. The citizen task force consists of city staff, citizens, and business people.
The Stormwater Advisory Board consists of 5 members (2 city staff and 3 citizens) and meets every quarter. The Board's purpose is:
• to discuss existing drainage problems in the city
• to recommend to City Council an annual work program to set priorities and schedules for projects
• to approve all projects over $25,000

The City employs two street sweepers to maintain the appearance of the City streets, while working to keep the curb, gutters, and storm drains clear of debris. Click here for Street Sweeping & Trash Pick Up Days.
Storm Drain Marking
Sign up to mark storm drains in your neighborhood with the message "No Dumping Drains to River". Individuals, families, and community organizations can receive a kit with all the necessary supplies to mark the storm drains, helping to educate our citizens. Contact Elizabeth Morgan for a kit.
