The Streets Department oversees a variety of maintenance functions within the public right-of-way. Some of these services include street sweeping, tree trimming, roadway striping, pothole repair and graffiti removal. To report a maintenance issue, please use the Report It tool.


The City of Escondido operates under a permit from the Regional Water Quality Control Board that requires street sweeping be prioritized based on volume of trash and debris generated in each area, the condition of nearby water bodies and other criteria. Street sweeping removes litter, debris, brake dust, dirt and other pollutants from city streets and the storm drain system. Storm drains carry rain water - and anything else that enters the system - out to creeks, lakes and the ocean with no stop along the way for treatment or debris removal.
