Stormwater Pollution Prevention
When it rains, it pours - motor oil, fertilizer, pet wastes, and other pollutants end up in the storm water runoff that goes down the storm drains. Unlike the wastewater that comes from our homes, storm water runoff does not receive treatment before it enters larger waterways. That's why it's important to dispose of oil properly and to use garden chemicals in accordance with their labels.
The Storm Water section is responsible for administering the City's storm water permit with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. This permit details the steps the City will take to help prevent and mitigate the impact non-point source pollutants have on our receiving waters.
