About City of Hamilton, Ohio Stormwater
The City's Storm Water Management System was created by council ordinance in 2002 and has since evolved into the Storm Water Division. This division is located within the Department of Public Works and is responsible for managing the City’s storm water drainage system. Storm water is water that originates from precipitation events, such as rain or snow. While most storm water is soaked into the ground, some becomes runoff that either flows directly into surface waterways or is channeled into storm sewers and eventually discharged into surface waterways.
