Stormwater Management

Water from rain or snow storms, known as stormwater, flows from streets, driveways, backyards, and parking lots into our storm drains.  Stormwater runoff is often worsened by human activities, and can contain pollutants such as oil, antifreeze, detergents, pesticides, fertilizer, and pet waste.

As part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Program (NPDES), the City of Goddard is required by the federal government to obtain a permit and monitor the stormwater runoff in our community.  Requirements of the program include monitoring and controlling stormwater runoff from local construction sites and increasing public awareness of stormwater pollution.

The City of Goddard Public Works Department works to ensure that our streets and parks are clean and grates are clear prior to, during, and after storm events.  

To report suspected stormwater pollution problems, please contact the Public Works Department at 316-794-2441.
