Stormwater & Pollution Prevention

Safe storm water drainage is very important for our environment. Here is everything you need to know about utility fee and pollution prevention.

Stormwater Utility Fee

The Town of Addison has established a Stormwater Utility fee to begin addressing a number of capital projects and maintenance items related to stormwater (drainage) that are not currently funded through the General Fund. Monthly charges for stormwater (drainage) service will be included in utility bills beginning in January 2013.

Pet Waste Management

Pet waste is not only smelly and unsightly, but it is a health risk to pets and people in addition to being a water quality issue and against the law. When pet waste is improperly disposed of, it can be picked up by storm water runoff into storm drains or nearby water bodies.

Mulching Program

Mulch allows conservation of water by requiring less irrigation use for plants. The mulching process also requires less fertilizer due to the natural break down of the mulch. To have the Town pick up your extra yard clippings and make them into mulch used around in Town parks just call (972) 450-2871 to schedule a pick up.
