Drainage Assistance Program

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 12/3/2019


No earlier than 10 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to adopt a resolution setting a pilot program for County assistance toward drainage improvement projects on private property. Drainage facilities, such as underground pipes and culverts, play a crucial role in maintaining proper waterflow and, in certain cases, protecting communities from flooding. Many private property owners are unaware that the maintenance of underground pipes and culverts on their property is often their responsibility. In an effort to assist private property owners in the repair of deteriorating culverts, the proposed pilot program would to help fund drainage improvement projects on private property within unincorporated Marin. Up to $50,000 in County financial assistance would be available for drainage facility improvements on private property that serves the public interest.


The Board adopted the resolution.
