Requests for Drainage Maintenance
The City of Wylie is actively working to reduce pollution sources, not only for today, but also for generations to come. Maintaining water quality and proper drainage is very important and beneficial to all residents and businesses in Wylie for several reasons:
- Property value can erode with increase in water pollution or flooding.
- Water pollution is a deterrent for business growth.
- Polluted water is unsafe for many activities we all enjoy, including fishing, swimming, boating and other water sports.
- Our drinking water is taken from surface water resources.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued regulations in 1999 to protect stormwater quality in urbanized areas. In Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) was delegated the responsibility for implementing the regulations, commonly called the Phase II Stormwater Program. The City of Wylie is required to develop a program to protect stormwater quality under Phase II regulations.
City staff reviews all development plans for compliance with the City’s codes and ordinances including stormwater regulations. The DIRT Procedures and Original Checklist contain the criteria the staff evaluates when development plans are submitted for review.
Since 2007, the City of Wylie has developed a stormwater management plan (SWMP) to comply with the requirements of the Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) General Permit No TXR040000.
