Storm Sewers Budget

Prior to 2011, funds for repairing and maintaining the storm water system came from the General Fund of the operating budget or from bond issue debt. This is no longer feasible because of the severity of the storm water issues; unfunded state and federal mandates to control these problems and meet standards; an aging conveyance system, and the competition for municipal tax dollars with other municipal needs. The Storm Sewers unit of the budget encompasses the repair of, and debris removal from, more than 75 miles of storm sewers and over 3,000 storm inlets throughout Mt. Lebanon.

Responsibilities include:
  • Periodic inspections of the municipal storm drain system
  • Storm inlet construction and reconstruction both scheduled and emergency
  • Response to general storm sewer problems including point repairs
  • Necessary storm sewer improvements identified in the capital budget
