Ordinance No. 07-4120 passed on May 10, 2007. Enacted laws mandate that the City of Bastrop regulate non-storm water discharges into the City's storm drain system.
Storm Water is made of rain and melted snow that flows over the ground. As it flows, it can pick-up dirt, debris, household chemicals and other pollutants. These will eventually be deposited into the same waters we use for fishing, swimming and sometimes for drinking.
Attention: Did you know that it is illegal to dump items into the City's storm drains? Anyone that is aware of illegal discharge or dumping anything into the City's storm drain, please contact Veolia Water 318-283-3326.

DO'S & DON'T
AROUND THE HOUSE
1. DO NOT pour cooking oils down the sink or storm drain. Save used cooking oils in empty containers until the next Hazardous Waste or Collection Day.
2. Do turn off the water when you brush your teeth. Take short showers instead of baths.
1. Clean-up after your pet; yes, even in your own yard. Flushing is best but you could bag and trash it too. Your pet's waste is NOT fertilizer. It is full of harmful bacteria.
1. DO test your soil before you treat it. Use less additives, a little can do a lot. Water your lawn during the cool times of the day.
