What is Storm Water? 

Storm water is pure rainwater plus anything that the rain carries along with it like pollutants, trash, and sediment.  Unlike sewage, storm water is not cleaned at a wastewater treatment facility. Whatever enters the storm drain goes directly into local creeks and lakes in our area.  Each and every one of us can make a positive difference in preventing pollution in these neighborhood creeks and lakes.

Stormwater Management Program (SWMP)

The Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) is a document created by the City detailing actions and activities it will perform in order to reduce the potential for water pollution from stormwater.

The SWMP is a permit requirement from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). In order to comply with TCEQ regulations, the City must follow through with the commitments outlined in the plan. Changes to the SWMP can be made to improve effectiveness.
