As more of the ground area in Parker is covered by homes, businesses, roads and parking lots, stormwater runoff has become a serious issue. Drainage facilities must be provided to protect properties from damage. The water quality in our creeks must also be protected to keep excess nutrients and harmful pollutants from damaging the environment.
In the past, drainage facilities such as detention ponds, channels, storm inlets and sewers have been the responsibility of each subdivision or commercial property owner, usually through the Homeowners’ Association or Metro District or by adjacent property owners. Citizens appealed to the Town to assist in this financially burdensome responsibility.
