The City utilizes a variety of natural and constructed waterways to convey runoff through the city. Although both ditches and wetlands are used for this purpose, they have very different requirements and constraints on maintenance activities including vegetation removal.
Generally, homeowners are required to maintain ditches adjacent to their property. If you are unsure whether your drainage is a wetland or just a ditch, call first.
