Drain Tiles Discharged into Streets

Waterloo Code Enforcement is experiencing a high volume of calls for drain tiles that are being discharged into the city street causing ice to build up. We are asking residents to make sure that the point of discharge is no less that ten feet from any property line and is not creating a public nuisance.

If you have your drain tile is set back, but is still causing a nuisance to a neighboring property or ice in the street you may need to relocate the tile to a different location. If you have questions whether or not your area has a drain tile or storm sewer in close proximity in which you could connect to the storm system, you may call Engineering at 319-291-4312. For other questions or concerns regarding drain tiles, call Code Enforcement at 319-291-3820.
