Engineering staff oversees the review of the drainage and underground utility plans submitted to the City for construction. They work with various engineering firms to ensure that plans comply with the City’s minimum standards as specified in the Design Criteria Manual.


The Engineering staff also works closely with the Galveston County Consolidated Drainage District to assist in maintaining and improving storm water drainage throughout the City. Part of the duty is to establish compliance with the Flood Plain Ordinance and verify property locations for flood zone determinations.
