The City of Naples receives an average annual rainfall of 56 inches which equates to approximately 14 billion gallons of water in a year. This is why it is so important for the City to have a Stormwater Master Plan to manage the stormwater that flows into waterbodies such as Naples Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, which are important to residents and many people that visit this great city.

Stormwater runoff is an increasingly important resource that needs to be managed from both a water quantity and quality standpoint. It impacts the City’s infrastructure, resources, and ecology. The goal of the Stormwater Master Plan Update is to develop a clear, comprehensive, and forward-looking master plan (updated from 2007) that encompasses the City of Naples’s stormwater management program. The update will investigate key components of stormwater as it is related to the City of Naples, and will establish goals and provide a foundation for future policy decisions. The final product will help the City guide its stormwater program for the next 10 or more years.

Components of the stormwater master plan may include:
•Water Quality and Ecology
•Water Quantity/Flooding
•Stormwater Infrastructure/Maintenance/Operational Strategies
•Sea Level Rise
•Capital Improvements
