Welcome!

Residents enjoy healthy local waterways and flood prevention thanks to the City of Hillsboro Public Works Department’s Surface Water Management Program.

The program includes the public Stormwater System, which collects, moves, and treats stormwater before it is released into local waterways.

The City is interested in learning what is important to you about stormwater management, and how to keep you informed and involved in decisions about investing in the repair and replacement of aging Stormwater System infrastructure. Thank you in advance for your feedback on this survey.
