Where Does It Go

Keeping Stormwater clean is important.  Help us protect it.

Provide feedback about Dallas' Stormwater Management Permit Renewal

The City of Dallas is permitted by the State of Texas to discharge from the storm sewer system into local creeks, streams, lakes, and the Trinity River. That permit has been recently renewed.  You can see what the City is doing to try to prevent pollution of the permitted discharge  (the City Stormwater Management Program or "SWMP") by viewing the annual report below. The City needs your participation as we change the SWMP to meet the renewed permit. Please let us know what you would like to see in the new SWMP.

Stormwater originates from percipitation(rainfall) and snow/ice melt. Stormwater can soak into the soil, be held on the surface and evaporate, or runoff and end up in our nearby streams, lakes and rivers.
