Community Education

The Stormwater Management education & outreach program helps inform residents of the impacts of stormwater runoff on our local water bodies. We also provide recommendations on how to reduce stormwater pollution.

To reach residents, visitors, business owners, and other members of the community the Stormwater Management Department participates in public events such as the WTHBA Home & Garden Show, Fall Arts & Crafts Festival, Dog Day Howl-O-Ween, and South Plains Career Expo, to name a few. Members of the department have also been requested to speak at meetings for several local organizations. The Stormwater Management Department also advertises on TV and digital media.

Public participation is an important part of our education & outreach program, and we encourage residents of Lubbock to get involved in protecting water resources.

Citizens and organizations can participate in any of the following ways:
  • Organize or participate in a neighborhood, City park, or playa lake clean-up event in your area
  • Help out the Stormwater Management Department by marking storm drains
  • Request Stormwater Management personnel to give a presentation to your organization
  • Use the Stormwater Hotline, 775-3118, to report stormwater issues.
If you're interested in any of the above opportunities, please call 775-3162 for more information.
