Storm Water Management plays an important role by monitoring storm drains for illegal discharges of pollutants that could make their way into public waterways.

Storm Water Management Plan

The City of Wichita Falls has developed a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) as required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TECQ) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit TXR040036. The SWMP outlines the goals, strategies, and programs formulated to improve water quality, addresses existing and future conflicts between flooding and development, as well as preserves and enhances valuable natural resources. The SWMP also describes the City’s responsibilities and authority regarding storm water management implementation, and provides detailed descriptions of storm water management Best Management Practices (BMPs).
