Storm Water Management Division

Storm Water Management is a result of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Storm Water Program which regulates storm water discharges from three potential sources: municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), construction activities, and industrial activities.

Most storm water discharges are considered point sources and operators of these sources may be required to receive an NPDES permit before they can be discharged. This permitting mechanism is designed to prevent storm water runoff from washing harmful pollutants into local surface waters such as streams, rivers, lakes or coastal waters.

What does this means to Glenn Heights? The City must have a permit through the State and is required to monitor construction, mark drains, provide cleanup activities, and participate in education programs.

 
Drainage Division
Drainage is related to the storm water program however there are other facets as well. Drainage must provide an avenue to move rain water away from homes and businesses in a safe and efficient manner. Public Works department maintain the storm drains as well the drainage easements.
