What We Do

We maintain low- and high-hazard dams that are City-owned. Maintenance and repairs include making sure that dams are functioning properly and that they are in good condition.

    There can be dams on private property on this list if: 

    • We have an agreement with a property owner to repair or replace them; and, 
    • They are impacting public streets and safety. 

    Drinking Water Supply

    We also maintain dams for our drinking water supply
