Stormwater & Pollution Prevention
Storm drains do not connect to sanitary sewer systems and treatment facilities (yikes!). Which means improperly disposed of oil, grass clippings, plastic bottles, and other hazardous and unsightly materials are released directly into our streams and rivers. Find out more below on how you can protect the water and people of the State of Texas.
Stormwater Utility Fee
The Town of Addison has established a Stormwater Utility fee which will be used to fund routine maintenance on pipes, storm drain clean outs, and numerous operational activities such as responding and amending illicit discharges. All of these activities promote a cleaner and healthier water source!

DOO GOOD PICK UP DOG DOO
Pet waste left on streets, pavement, yards, driveways, or along the sides of the road does not magically disappear or fertilize the ground. Improperly disposed animal feces can be picked up by stormwater runoff and carried into storm drains or nearby water resources. Pet waste is a cause of significant stormwater pollution and presents health risks to adults, children, and other pets.
