Storm Drain Cleaning

Cleaning of storm drain inlets on County-owned property.

Protecting the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries is one of our highest priorities. This activity helps us to accomplish this goal by completing necessary storm drain cleaning work on County property, thereby reducing sediment traveling to the bay. Work is completed on a rotating basis using a vactor (vacuum) truck on approximately 25,850 inlets. Inlets are cleaned every 3 years with special attention given during and after rainfall events to insure proper drainage.
