Stormwater Management

The Stormwater Management Plan is a City-wide program that has adopted best management practices to prevent pollution of our creeks and streams. 
This program was developed to meet the requirements of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Phase II Municipal Separate Storm Sewers System Permit.

The City of Southlake has developed the following programs: 

  • Public education and involvement in storm water quality,
  • Identifying and cleaning up pollutants in our creeks and streams,
  • Plan review, inspection, and enforcement for construction site runoff control,
  • Plan review, inspection, and enforcement for maintaining stormwater structures at sites that have already been developed, and;
  • Training for City staff to ensure our operations are environmentally-friendly

Because the City of Southlake spans just over 22 square miles, effectively managing the our stormwater quality requires the cooperation of the Southlake community and multiple City departments including; Environmental Services, Streets & Drainage, Wastewater, Building Inspections, Planning & Development Services, Engineering, and Community Services.
