City-Wide Stormwater Master Plan

The City of St. Petersburg’s Engineering & Capital Improvements Department is in the process of coordinating a City-wide Stormwater Master Plan to identify needed improvements to the drainage system to address flooding problems.

The City has been collecting vast amounts of information about the drainage infrastructure and is developing a computer database to analyze the drainage system and identify drainage infrastructure upgrades.

The public is invited to attend upcoming public meetings to learn more about the Stormwater Master Plan and provide local input to identify other significant flooding problems that need to be addressed. The public meetings will be offered on four dates in December 2021 corresponding with sections of the city: central, north, south and west. The same information will be presented at each meeting, in addition to information about projects specific to each section.

Dates, times and virtual attendance information for the public meetings, as well as additional project information,may be found at stpete.org/StormwaterMasterPlan. Meetings dates and times may be subject to change, please check the website for updates.

Please share this information with your neighborhood or business association members. We appreciate your cooperation and participation.

For immediate flooding concerns, please feel free to contact the hotline number at (727) 893-7854.

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced today that beginning Monday, March 29th, Sunshine State residents aged 40 and over will be eligible to get the Covid vaccine and one week later, on April 5, every adult, age 18 & older, will be eligible.

Florida would open COVID vaccine eligibility a week later to all people age 18 and over on April 5th.

DeSantis said Florida has already vaccinated 70 percent of the state’s 4.4 million seniors.

"While the Biden administration set a May 1st target date for vaccine eligibility for all adults, Florida is pleased to announce that all adults in the state age 18 and older will be eligible for the vaccine beginning Monday, April 5th," DeSantis said in a news release.

More than 5.2 million of Florida’s over 21 million residents had received at least one coronavirus shot as of early Wednesday. About 13.7 percent of the state's population has been fully vaccinated.

Vaccines are also available at 150 CVS locations, 125 Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club locations, more than 70 Winn Dixie locations, soon-to-be over 600 Walgreens pharmacies, and every single one of the 730 Publix pharmacies across the state.
