Town Of Moraga

Understanding the Town's Storm Drainage System

There is limited information currently available about the condition of the Town’s storm drainage system including approximately 30 miles of pipeline. Much of the existing storm drainage system in Town has aged and continues to deteriorate with few or no repairs since the Town’s incorporation. As a result of the Town’s deferred maintenance of its storm drains, the Town has experienced two major failures resulting in sinkholes near Calle la Mesa in 2012 and on Center Street in 2006. Town Council approved a contract with Schaaf & Wheeler on February 26 to prepare a Storm Drain Master Plan. The project is a proactive approach to determine the needs, costs, and priorities associated with storm drain improvements. This information is critical for the Town to properly program future repair, replacement, and capacity of the Town’s storm drains.
