What is a storm sewer?
A storm sewer is a pipe located in the city rights-of-way or easement that is designed to carry storm-related water runoff (Storm water). Storm sewers are normally much larger than sanitary sewers because they are designed to carry much larger amounts of flow. Storm sewers are owned, operated and maintained by the City of Sugar Land.
