Where does the stormwater that falls around the Saylor and Jackson area go?
The rainwater that falls in the Saylor and Jackson area is collected via inlets in curbs and conveyed into the City’s storm sewer system. The water flows west down Jackson to Salt Creek and the Jackson Street Stormwater lift station. If Salt Creek elevations are not up, the water flows by gravity through the station and to the creek. If Salt Creek is in an elevated condition the a gate is closed and the stormwater spills into a wet well and is pumped out to the Creek via a 60,000 gallon per minute pump.
