KEEP WHITE SETTLEMENT BEAUTIFUL
We take seriously our responsibility as a City and as individuals to look after our environment. We believe that to Keep White Settlement Beautiful is to get involved. To volunteer, to educate ourselves and each other, and to be an active participant in making this the hometown community that we all love.
Protect Your Community, Prevent FIRES!
Extremely hot temperatures are clutching White Settlement with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees. The high heat combined with low humidity and breezy conditions have created an increased in fire danger across the metroplex. With the Tarrant County Burn Ban in place for the next 90 days due to the hot and dry conditions the City would like to encourage all residents to take precautions and be extra safe during this time. Here are a few ways to help residents in these drought times stay safe.
- Keep a perimeter of about 30 feet around properties mowed to prevent possible fires from reaching buildings.
- Debris and vegetation should also be removed since they can be fuel for fires.
- Keep a water hose nearby in the case of a small fire.
- Gas grills are the safest outdoor cooking option. Please keep the flames covered during the operation of your gas grill.
- If you want to use a charcoal or wood-burning grill or an outdoor fire pit, it must be placed on a concrete, gravel, or dirt surface at least five (5) feet from any combustible materials. Please keep the cover on the grill during use.
- Smokers can be used if they are placed on a concrete, gravel, or dirt surface at least five feet from combustible materials. Keep the flames covered during use.
- Do not burn items outdoors.
- DO not toss cigarettes on the ground.
- Do not park over tall grass.
- Do not drag tow chains on grounds.
Remember one spark is all it takes, help the City Keep White Settlement Beautiful!
Did you know that flushing wipes can cause costly damage to your plumbing? Not only can the wipes build up in the pipes and damage your plumbing, they also build up and cause damage to the overall sewer system. Despite what the packaging may say, think twice before introducing wipes into the sewer system. Please throw them away in the trash instead. Save the pipes, don't flush the wipes!
CALL BEFORE YOU DIG
811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to their state 811 center’s website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line. You should call 811 or use your state 811 center’s website a few business days before you begin any digging, including common projects like planting trees and shrubs or installing fences and mailboxes. The specific amount of advance notice that you are required to provide varies by state.
