The Greenwood Stormwater Department manages the city’s stormwater utility, working to implement the Stormwater Management Program, protect critical infrastructure and improve the ecological health of our environment.

Greenwood’s stormwater system manages the runoff from rainfall. In nature, water flows from fields to streams to rivers and so on, but development has changed some of these natural flows. The stormwater system prevents flooding and limits pollutants flowing into streams and rivers.

Report a Bald Eagle Sighting

After many years trying to bring them back from near extinction, Bald Eagles are making a resurgence in Indiana. The Bald Eagle, our national symbol, was removed from the endangered species list in 2007. Currently, there are more than one hundred nesting pairs in our state, leading to more sightings of these stunning birds right here in our area.

2018 Activity Schedule

Flood Mitigation Property Acquisition

In order to help protect the citizens of Greenwood from natural flooding disasters, the Greenwood Stormwater Department is participating in the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. This program provides the City with a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to purchase select properties that are located in the floodway, therefore reducing the risk of flood damage in the event of a natural disaster.
Two-Stage Ditch
Two-Stage Ditch

Two-Stage Ditch

Two-stage ditches are created as regional detention facilities; to provide space for excess storage of floodwaters. These areas promote native vegetation and slow the velocity of water flowing through the drain, improving the water quality and preventing erosion in the process.
