The La Crosse Stormwater Utility, in coordination with the Engineering Department, is responsible for planning, designing, budgeting and construction of major capital improvements to the city’s storm water distribution system.
Each year, the Stormwater Utility invests in a number of capital improvement projects. These range from stormwater sewer pipe installation to Stormwater Best Management Practices implementation. Smaller projects are funded directly from Utility revenues. Larger projects may require outside bond funds. Ultimately, these investments maintain and upgrade the storm water conveyance system to ensure a reliable and safe supply of water to the community. Projects planned can be found in the City of La Crosse Capital Improvement Budget.
The last Stormwater Management Plan was completed in August of 2008 by Earth Tech AECOM.
