Vacuum Truck Program


Workers using Vacuum Truck to Remove Sane and Debris from Drainage Network

This program maintains the underground stormwater drainage system after installation.  Two vacuum trucks are deployed for removing sand, vegetation, tree roots and other debris from the drainage network.  Clogged pipes can cause road and swale flooding during storm events.  The suction and flushing capabilities of these trucks allow pipes to be cleared in place vs. digging up a pipe, which can compromise the integrity of the pipe or the road/swale above.  Should you suspect pipes or catch basins in your neighborhood of being clogged, please contact the 311 Call Center formerly the Citizen’s Action Center by dialing 311 or (239) 574-0425. with an exact location or address.
