The Drainage Fund was created for the purpose of protecting people and property from harm and damage resulting from uncontrolled and unplanned storm water runoff, allowing the movement of emergency vehicles during flood events, and minimizing inconveniences to businesses and citizens from storm events. This is accomplished by funding the construction, operation and maintenance of the storm water system along with the administration of the drainage utility. 


The Sewer Fund is responsible for the collection and treatment of domestic and industrial wastewater generated in Johnstown.  Administration, maintenance, operation, monitoring, testing and treatment program are the primary functions.
