The property owner is responsible for providing facilities required to convey storm drainage to the storm drainage basins. The cost of installing these facilities in the city service area is charged in whole or in part to the property owner. Owners of property in elevated areas of the city share the cost of improvements through a monthly storm drainage service fee. For further information see the City Codes Title 13.
The Missouri River is the source for drinking water for the City of Great Falls. It is important to keep our river water clean! All storm drain inlets go directly to the river. They are not tied to our sanitary sewer systems. For more information see Storm Water Pollution.
