The City of Hurst maintains approximately 14 miles of opened lined channels. The city has an aggressive maintenance program, which includes mowing of some channels, silt removal, weed control, pollution testing, and flood control.

City staff cleans debris off bridges after every 1” rainstorm and cleans all the storm drain inlets once a year. This ongoing maintenance improves the City’s participation level in the Federal Flood Insurance Program. As a class 8 community, Hurst residents will receive a 10% reduction to any federally backed flood insurance premium.
