The storm drain department protects the health, safety and welfare of Eagle Mountain City, its inhabitants, and downstream entities through the improvement of the storm drain portion of the City’s storm water system by managing and controlling storm water runoff, protecting property, and preventing polluted water from entering the city storm water system.
Storm drains are generally pipes or sumps that convey water away from potential flooding areas. Eagle Mountain City's storm drainage system is a separate storm water collection and runoff system. It is not connected in any manner to the wastewater collection system.
Stormwater is not filtered or cleaned before it is released to Utah Lake, the Jordan River, or to the groundwater, so it can be a pollutant if it is not kept clean. It is a Federal and State offense to put anything other than normal storm runoff into a storm drain.
If you see any illegal dumping or open manholes or experience storm-related flooding, please call our 24-Hour Storm Water Hotline at 801-789-5959, option 5.
Eagle Mountain City participates in the Utah County Stormwater Coalition.
