Public Works - Know your Macomb County Drains

Know your Macomb County Drains


There are 475 drains in Macomb County. They range from massive underground pipes that start just north of Eight Mile Road, to meandering country creeks that cross Boardman Road and wander in to St. Clair County. A few originate west of Dequindre Road in Oakland County. They all eventually carry storm water – rain fall and melting snow – that eventually ends up in Lake St. Clair.
