The Stormwater Division maintains more than 165 miles of pipe and 18,000 stormwater structures for gathering, draining, and transporting runoff. The City's stormwater utility offers two different programs to help residents dealing with effects of the increased runoff. These programs vary greatly on solution options, cost, and time frame for completion. For more information call Stormwater Services 704-866-6714. 
The Off Right-of-Way Program: The Off Right-of-Way Program is designed to provide an open channel solution to improve stormwater problems that a property owner may be experiencing. This is a cost-sharing program and open channel solutions are preferred because of the overall quality benefit to Gastonia's creek system. Requests are completed based on threat to structure and order received.
Storm Drain Extension Policy: The Storm Drain Extension Program offers a wide range of solutions to repair damage due to increased run off. The program provides a financial partnership between the City and property owner, allowing more flexibility and a faster time schedule for completion. Repair options range from open swales with plantings up to pipe solutions.
