The seven creeks provide over 11 miles of natural storm drains to our City. In addition, our man made storm drainage lines that flow underground in pipes or concrete lined open channels add an additional of approximately 45 miles to the City’s storm drain system. The City of Burlingame is fortunate to have these natural storm drains as they provide a habitat for wildlife, improves water quality to the bay, and a host of aesthetic benefits.
Our creeks are an irreplaceable natural resource that should be preserved as they are especially valuable to a Creekside property owner since a healthy creek traditionally increases the value of a Creekside property. A degraded creek, on the other hand, can cause serious property damage and can decrease its value.
If you are a Creekside homeowner, we encourage you to protect, maintain, and care for your creek as it takes care of your property and the City in general during rain storms. The following information is provided to assist you to be good stewards as a Creekside homeowner.
