Stormwater management is critical to preserving the quality of water in North Dakota. The City of West Fargo's storm sewer drains into the Sheyenne River and has a direct influence on our natural environment. Stormwater management also helps protect our homes from flooding and keeps water from damaging our property.
Any pollutants or sediment that enters the city storm sewer system can harm to the aquatic life in our rivers, animals along its banks, or the thousands of people in the state who use rivers for recreation or as a water supply. To help manage stormwater, the City of West Fargo has developed a storm water management program, which allows us to better regulate what enters our rivers.
