Stormwater Management

When rain hits any hard surface, such as your roof or driveway, it can't soak into the ground so it runs off your property. Uncontrolled runoff can lead to flooding, erosion and pollution problems. It is the city's job to help control this runoff.

The City Engineer is working to modernize the Waxahachie storm water system and educate the public about the dangers of flash flooding.
