discharges into the City's drain system 

please call Veolia Water:  (318) 283-3326

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. 3. DO NOT flush diapers, wipes, or feminine products down the toilet; they damage our sewer system mor than anything else. 4. Use earth friendly cleaning products.




PET CARE


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. 2. If left on the ground, it will eventually wash into the public water. Pets waste is harmful to public health.




LAWN CARE


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. 2. DON'T overwater your lawn or allow sprinklers water to get on the sidewalk, driveway, or street. It will go into the storm drain with debris and other pollutants. 3. DON'T spread fertilizer or pesticides BEFORE it rains, most of it just washes away. Spread a little fertilizer AFTER it rains and save money. 4. DO vegetate bare spots in your yard. Select native plants and grases that are drought and pest resistant; they require less water, fertilizer and pesticides and they help to prevent soil erosion. 5. DON'T use your hose or leaf blower to push grass or lawn clippings into the storm drain, it is illegal. 6. DO rake or sweep mowed clippings. Compost or recycle yard waste whenever possible. Keep it out of the storm drains.
