Stormwater runoff is collected in a system of catch basins and directed through a network of pipes and swales to one of the 50 outfalls. United Water maintains the storm drain pipes and catch basins as part of their service contract with the City. United Water can be contacted at (401) 845-2000 regarding flooding, a blocked catch basin or an illicit connection.
Questions regarding a new or existing connection to the storm drain system should be directed to the Utilities Division at (401) 845-5600.
The City has available a brochure to explain the importance of stormwater management and how individual homeowners can help. The brochure is available here: Solution to Pollution
