Stormwater Management

WHAT IS STORMWATER?

Stormwater is any water that flows overland when it rains. It enters storm drains and local waterways like streams, creeks, and ponds. Other types of water that enter the storm drains or flows overland and into local waterways have the potential to affect the quality of our stormwater.

Report a Stormwater Problem
You may be surprised by the things that can become pollutants if they find their way into storm drains, sewers, and creeks. Animal waste, litter, motor oil, yard clippings, fertilizer/pesticides, and soapy water from washing cars can all be damaging. If you see or suspect there is a stormwater pollution problem in your neighborhood, please report it by calling (817)246-4971 ext 221 or by emailing ahall@wstx.us.
